Armfield - Miniature-Scale Research & Development Technology - FT51 Continuous In-line Deaerator

The Armfield FT51 deaerator unit has been designed to enable small quantities of food and other liquid products to be processed conveniently in the laboratory. It can be used as a standalone batch deaerator or inline with one of the Armfield continuous processing systems, such as the FT74XTS or the FT174X. The unit is designed to mirror the industrial processes of vacuum deaeration.

The FT51 may be sited in most production environments and is well suited to operation in the laboratory. Typical product throughput is 20 l/hr.

The FT51 offers both batch, where spray or disc-based deaeration can be undertaken, or a continuous mode, where the system can be used in conjunction with other Armfield processing equipment.
