TH6 – Film and Dropwise Condensation Demonstration unit


TH6 – Film and Dropwise Condensation Demonstration unit

The TH6 Film and Dropwise Condensation Demonstration unit demonstrates the formation of condensation of water on two differing surfaces with the ability of the operator, to change a variety of parameters and observe the effects and undertake calculations based upon the presented data.


The TH6 Film and Dropwise condensation unit demonstrates the concepts of film and dropwise condensation under variable pressure, (vacuum), condition in a highly visual manner.

Visual display of key parameters and calculated values are displayed via a computer or optional HMI utilising the Armfield Ltd ArmBUS software.

The Armfield Thermodynamics, TH, range of products are a set of desktop thermodynamic experiments designed to introduce students to concepts and equipment typically found in industry.

They are designed to be highly visual offering full computer control and datalogging as standard.
