Amalgamated Research LLC
Amalgamated Research LLC (ARi) is a process research and development company specializing in creation and management of innovative technology from lab and pilot studies to full-scale industrial implementation.
Products include ARi’s patented fractal distribution technology for efficiently controlling the geometry and dynamics of fluid scaling and distribution. In many cases, these devices can be used as efficient functional alternatives to turbulence. Significant reductions in energy use, smaller equipment and more efficient processing are demonstrated benefits. Examples include control of single or multi-phase flows in chromatography, ion exchange, adsorption, absorption, distillation, aeration, scrubbing, extraction, combustion, mixing and reactor processes.
ARi develops and installs industrial separation and purification systems including simulated moving bed chromatography (SMB), ion exchange and membrane systems. Examples include recovery of sucrose from beet and cane sources, recovery of betaine and production of fructose from starch (including HFCS). ARi also provides efficient and cost effective biomass separation equipment for production of fuels and chemicals.
Other services include pilot testing, contract process research and development, analytical services, collaborative research studies and technical consulting. In addition, ARi designs, manufactures and supplies fractal distributors, pilot plants and specialty process equipment.
