Non-Ferrous Metal Recycling is a large industry focusing on the recovery of metals such as aluminum, brass, copper, and even precious metals from electronic scrap. The applications and needs of non ferrous metal recyclers vary greatly. These can include a large corporate recycler buying UBC bales for shredding to be converted back into beverage cans or a small recycler who is recovering precious metals from circuit boards or catalytic converters.
Sauereisen polymer concrete is a heavy-duty castable used in the mining and precious metals refining industries. These products provide impressive physical strength, abrasion resistance and very low permeability. Polymer concrete can be an economical alternative to brick when project conditions call for a long-lasting system that is easy to install.
Countercurrent Decantation (CCD): Rock passes into a dump hopper and is then transferred to a vibrating grizzly screen. The oversized material is sent to a jaw crusher. The crushed product is combined with the grizzly undersize and the ore is conveyed to the coarse ore bin.
Scrap metal includes metals that can be reclaimed for use in manufacturing, processed for re-melting or prepared for disposal in landfills. These metals include industrial scrap metal and remainders, electronic scrap, aluminum and precious metals. Shredders prepare the metals for bailing and bundling, saving storage space, transportation and disposal costs. Quad shaft shredders reduce and separate electronic scrap and prototypes in one process, allowing for the recovery of precious metals. Dual or quad shaft...
The surface finishing industry is driven to provide superior plated components, in turn requiring high quality anodes. De Nora DSA® anodes, with their tailored precious metal coating applied on Grade 1 titanium substrates, ensure durable, reliable and high performance operation.
Proper disposal of electronic waste (WEEE) and of waste in the R4 category, i.e. waste such as electrical and electronic equipment, allows the recovery of a large number of precious metals and components.

Used catalytic converters are collected and recycled in order to reclaim the precious metals Pt, Rh and Pd. Typically, the entire honeycomb core is removed and ground into fine powder. Once in powder form, the precious metal catalysts can be extracted, or the powder can be sold to a refiner. The honeycomb core is typically ceramic, containing combinations of the elements Al, Si, Fe, Zn, Sr, Zr, Ba, La and Ce. Some cores can be made of a stainless steel honeycomb and so would contain higher Fe and other metals....
For the optimal processing and reduction of steel and stainless steel chips, cast, aluminium, copper, brass, titanium and precious metal turnings, for instance, Mercodor, with its rugged, compact precision cutters has the right solution for each and every task.
Sauereisen’s diverse line of corrosion-resistant materials stands up to the extreme temperatures, pH levels and physical abuse that are commonly found in chemical and petrochemical facilities. Whether these facilities need protection for secondary containment, flooring, immersion or flue gas environments, Sauereisen has an inclusive product offering to provide the necessary protection and security. Our products have stood up to the challenges in acid plants, refineries, steel pickling lines and precious...
Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth, usually from an ore body, vein or (coal) seam. Materials recovered by mining include base metals, precious metals, iron, uranium, coal, diamonds, limestone, oil shale, rock salt and potash. Whether the determination entails measurement of ores, feed, slags, or tailings in the mining process, X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) spectroscopy is one of the most commonly employed technique for these routine determinations of metal...
Activated Carbon has a major role in various applications across the mining industry, particularly in gold recovery. Activated Carbon fulfills a crucial role as the key element in Heap Leach Circuits, Carbon in Leach, and Carbon in Pulp processes. Carbon Activated Corp. has a well developed history of supplying goldmines across the USA, South America, Turkey and a number of other gold producing territories. We are a major manufacturer of activated carbon specialized for the gold mining industry and precious...
The mining industry relies on Calgon Carbon’s Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) to recover gold and other precious metals. Calgon Carbon’s ISEP® Technology is used to recover precious, rare earth and base metals, uranium, copper, nickel and zinc from ore, waste and reclaim streams. Our high-quality activated carbons have been developed and successfully proven to maximize efficiency by reducing the loss of precious metals and the consumption of carbon in three precious metal extraction techniques: Carbon-in-Leach...
The content of WEEE (electrical and electronic waste) gives recyclers various initiatives for recycling. It contains hazardous substances, such as lead, mercury or certain flame retardants, as well as precious metals like gold and silver. In 2012 approx. 64,900.000 ton electronic goods where produced and 49.000.000 ton electrical and electronic waste (WEEE) was generated. As the amount of sold electronic goods rise, the amount of WEEE rises. It is vital that this waste is taken care of properly.

For steel analysis, LIBS is ideal for rapid QC (quantitative analysis and detection of contaminants) for raw materials in production, and to check the elemental composition of finished products. LIBS also offers the ability to analyze slag samples that can lead to the recovery of precious metals lost in the steel production process.
