Today we offer an extensive range of sophisticated chemistries by handling challenging reagents, such as Carbon disulfide, Chlorosulfonic acid and Phosgene. We also offer Diels Alder and Freidel Crafts reactions, vacuum distillation and cyclisations to produce heterocyclic molecules. Our manufacturing plants are capable of operating between -5oC to 170oC at Pilot Plant and Production scale. Autoclaves are capable of achieving temperatures up to 170oC and pressures up to 70bar. Vessel capacity varies from 25L to 13,500L across our multiple manufacturing plants, and associated ancillary equipment including vacuum pumps, gauge tanks, filter driers are capable of being vented under negative pressure to the thermal oxidiser and abatement plant.
