VAL-MET Spa., as an active operator on scraps from goldsmith laboratories, as sullages, sludges, refluents, filings, scissels, etc. , offers to its customers other services in precious metals recovery, by proposing:

  • Recall of sullages coming from exhausted solutions of rhodium baths, with subsequent materials handling and treatments to rhodium recovery.
  • Recall of sludges and soils with silver coming from water purification plants of photographic and cinematographic industries, with subsequent materials handling and treatments to silver recovery.
  • Recall of liquids coming from water/oil disjunction or from emulsions coming from processing or machineries, equipments and fixtures (as the rolling-mills) used in industries and laboratories handling precious metals.
  • Recall of exhausted solutions with silver, with subsequent materials handling and treatments to silver recovery.
  • Recall of sludges and soils with silver coming from galvanic industries who work to silver plate electrical connectors in order to improve their electrical conductivity, with subsequent materials handling and treatments to silver recovery.
