FAR Chemical has process equipment capable of handling all of the classic organic chemical syntheses. A variety of 50-1500 gallon glass lined, hastelloy and stainless steel reactors can be configured to run the most difficult processes. Purifications can be carried out via stainless steel or ceramic packed fractionation units.
 
Single plate wiped and thin film evaporators are used for viscous and/or heat sensitive products. Alloy steel centrifuges, pressure nutsches, and sparkler filter presses are available for solid/liquid separations. Drying of solid products is done in either double cone rotary dryers or vacuum tray dryers.
