METALLURGICAL LABORATORY

WHY IN-HOUSE?

Having an on-site lab gives our customers fast, accurate and reliable results. It allows us to sample, assay, refine and settle your individual lots of circuit boards in under 45 days. It also reduces risk, allowing IRT to offer fiercely competitive cash pricing on your circuit boards and converters.

SAMPLE | ASSAY | REFINE

Fire assaying is the industry standard process for obtaining gold and platinum data. At IRT, we create the most homogenous sample possible ending with a powder that is less than 100 mesh. Using a custom flux, IRT’s certified chemists perform a fire assay and cupellation to extract the exact amount of precious metals. After a total weight has been documented, the precious metal is digested in acids to extract the gold from the other metals.
