The Armfield Unit Operations range provides a series of products designed to allow in depth teaching and investigation into the individual basic steps in a process relating to Chemical engineering and associated fields.
Each product can be considered to have a single function in a potentially multiple step process, involving a physical change or chemical transformation such as separation, crystallisation, evaporation, distillation, filtration, extraction, absorption and drying.

Montana State University

Armfield recently visited Stephanie Wettstein at the chemical engineering department, Montana State University to complete the installation of the UOP3CC Continuous Computer Controlled Distillation Column.

As innovators of educational engineering equipment Armfield have developed this state-of-the-art laboratory based distillation column to enable safe hands on practical training for student engineers and plant operators as well as empowering research in different fields to be conducted.

The UOP3CC enables a range of demonstrations from the introductory stages of a process engineering course through to the more complex demonstrations of modern control strategies.

Armfield’s professional services team offer installation, commissioning and training on site to ensure that laboratories and research centres are able to fully utilise all equipment at the earliest opportunity.
