After receiving your material we smelt it into a bar. To establish its content, this is then analysed via cupellation* in our independently certified laboratory.
The larger the amount of precious metal processed at a time, the lower the relative processing cost. This means we are able to offer you better prices for handling larger quantities. If you wish, we can work together with you to find a way of insuring against possible price risks. The processing time depends on the material you provide.
- Clean scrap metal: 3 to 5 working days
- Filings and production scrap: 10 to 15 working days
- Scrap silver: 10 to 15 working days
- Sweepings 8 to 12 weeks

* We use advanced ICP analysis equipment for materials such as platinum, palladium and rhodium. Determining of silver content is done via titrimetric analysis.
