About Us

About Us

At Amar we pride ourselves in being a family-operated, process-equipment company, now led by our 2nd Generation. We started out in 1974 as a manufacturer of high-pressure reactors (autoclaves) in Mumbai, India. Throughout our history, our Management and ownership has always been held by engineers with expertise in design and manufacturing. Over the past 50 years we became the industry leader for batch as well as continuous reactors in India for the most challenging conditions e.g. Pressures of 700 bar and Temperatures up to 1000 C. Today, almost every chemical company in India has Amar equipment in its R&D facilities and the “Amar” brand name is synonymous of the trust and quality demanded for safety-critical high-pressure autoclaves. After our success in the Indian markets Amar ventured into international markets offering skid-mount, modular pilot plant units to complement our pressure and flow reactors.

Our equipment scale ranges from lab to pilot scale, sizes as small as 1 ml to large 10,000 L reactors and we can work with an extensive range of MOCs including Hastelloy, Monel, Zirconium, Titanium and many others including coatings and clad sheets. End-customers span sectors such as Chemicals, Pharma and Oil & Gas industries but also Universities and national labs. Amar offers a full portfolio of services from concept to scale up and production systems. We are proud of a robust R&D team which has been coming up with innovative reactor designs especially in the flow reactor domain. Amar is unique in offering state-of-the-art, in-house wet-lab facilities (including fume hoods and GC / HPLC analytical capabilities) for scale up and demos of customer chemistries as FTE projects on our site.

Our reactors and skids comply with international regulations such as ASME-U Stamp, CE, EU-PED, ATEX and many others. We have the ability to add process control and monitoring options via PLCs / DCS or tie-ins with customer proprietary systems such as Modbus, Profibus and others. Our automated fabrication shop uses CNC and advanced machining technologies for close tolerances and is supported by a diligent QC team working to ISO-9001 standard. We pride on our quality and have expertise with a variety of NDT techniques and welder qualification for the most demanding and critical projects. Our team is supported by a global marketing and service network which also offers a variety of accessories such as Swagelok-equivalent parts and Magnetic Drives. A recent addition to the Amar portfolio is a range of Heating Cooling Circulators and Thermostats.

Our philosophy at Amar has always been continuous innovation and a desire to delight our customers so we can focus on repeat business by building brand loyalty.
