Research Chemical Manufacturing
We can deliver sophisticated chemistry at the kilogram level. We have expertise in a wide range of technologies, including hydrogenation, distillations, gas handling, acrylates, and pressure reactions. Our equipment features autoclaves from 100 gallon (380 L) to 700 gallon (2,700 L) with 500 psi (3,400 kpg).
We have dedicated facilities for small scale manufacturing critical to our ability to scale up for commercial production. We have two glass-lined reactors, 50 gallon (190 L) and 100 gallon (380 L) each, three batch distillation columns (10-50 gal, 10-40 plates), and two continuous distillation columns for high purity, electronic grade materials. Additionally, we also have a wiped film evaporator.
Commercial Scale Custom Synthesis
For commercial scale custom synthesis we have stainless steel and glass-lined reactors up to 2,000 gal (7,600 L), large-scale continuous distillation, and a 24/7 quality control lab (24/7).
