You are entitled to the upmost precision

You have every right to demand that the value of your material is determined correctly, for this after all is a matter of your profit. Our laboratory is equipped to carry out two different technical measurement processes, in order to determine the value of your material with the upmost precision. We utilize x-ray fluorescence analysis as well as an ICP-OES- Spectrometer.

For the purposes of analysis, we take a representative sample from every shipment. We pay particular attention to the preparation of each sample, as this is the crucial determinant aspect of test accuracy. Through a series of steps, the sample is ground into a fine, homogenous powder and separated into eight parts.

Analysis: precise and transparent

We use two of the samples to determine the moisture content of the material. The remaining six are subjected to an x-ray fluorescence analysis, yielding the first precious metal content results. For a precise final analysis we trust the ICP-Spectrometer procedure, for which the samples are smelted into a copper amalgamation and dissolved into solution. The solution is then heated. Through the characteristic radiation emission spectrum of each element, the precious metal content can be very accurately determined.

You will receive a complete analysis protocol of all laboratory testing. Moreover we hold one sample of each set for reference purposes. Should you wish to archive a sample for personal reference, we would be happy to provide you with one.
