Labs & Facilities

Chemistry Lab

The chemistry labs are used by students in a number of programs: Nursing, Instrumentation & Control Engineering, Chemical Production & Power Engineering. Laboratory exercises complement theoretical concepts and develop, good, safe laboratory practices through hands-on activities and chemical experimentation.

Distillation Column

Student Application

The distillation column lab provides students with the skills necessary to compete in the high-tech petrochemical and power industries as well as many others. Students receive hands-on training in the following areas when working in this lab: advanced instrumentation and control, refrigeration trainers, advanced distillation, and electrical and logic systems.

Research Application

This lab has a large scale distillation unit with all industrial-size process, instrumentation and control components. The unit is connected to a Delta V distribution control system. This unit can be customized for various training courses and research projects including energy optimization, multivariable control, model predictive control, flooding (foaming/weeping/entrainment), affective and varied reflux; carry-over/carry-under studies. This lab has been used extensively by local companies for expanding the knowledge and competencies of their engineers and researchers by studying the principles underlying the complex technologies used in complex processes.

Electronics Lab

This lab contains 15 stations where students are able to practice the safe and proper wiring of any number of electrical and electronic circuits. In this lab, students can learn about the theory of DC and AC circuits, basic wiring principles and the operation of many different devices such as power supplies, oscilloscopes, multimeters, resistors, potentiometers, capacitors, diodes, transistors, SCR's, digital devices, breadboards and many more.

Process Simulator

Controlling a commercial and industrial plant takes hundreds of hours of training to begin to understand a particular process. With the use of complex process simulators, students learn how to start-up, operate, troubleshoot and shut-down a process safely. Our process simulators have a suite of different processes including combined cycle power plant, refrigeration trainers, crude oil fractionation units, and more.

Steam Boiler

One of the best equipped training facilities in the province, Lambton College's Steam Boiler Lab will feature both fire-tube and water-tube high pressure boilers, the glass walls of the room showcase two stories of industrial equipment and technology. In this lab students learn how to operate a full powerhouse just as they would in an industrial facility. They learn how to inspect, start, run, maintain, troubleshoot and shutdown boilers and associated equipment such as water treatment, turbines and compressors.

Teaching Analyzer Lab

Research Application

Carry out research projects for the Bioindustrial Process Research Centre Technology Access Centres projects. Projects range from advanced fermentation, biofuels and biochemicals production, Agriculture re-use, waste repurposing and biotechnology.

Student Application

Students develop an understanding of online analyzers. Online analyzers measure the chemistry of industrial processes in an automated context in order for those processes to be controlled and optimized. These analyzers test things like the presence of flammable gases, oxygen in confined space, product composition, water contamination and pH. The fundamentals of the methods, the trouble-shooting, the calibration and setting alarms and reporting are all covered.
