Precious Metals Melting System

=&0=&The furnace was only used for proof of concept in a platinum recovery project and has extremely low hours. It is practically new… It is a top of the line, USA built, =&1=& Inductotherm system using their latest IBGT technology and was specifically designed to handle non-ferrous metals (gold, platinum, copper, brass, bronze, etc.)  If stainless steel melting is required, it is very easy to make the modification with this unit. All drawings and manuals included. It was =&2=&used in a foundry application/environment and is exceptionally clean. It has multiple cooling and fail-safe systems to protect the furnace should there be a pump failure or power outage during an important melt/casting.Asking price is $89,000. We can also supply installation support and operational assistance if requested.

Analytical Balance

Analytical Balance Principle

In this place it will be sufficient to describe the usual chemical balance, designed to carry in each pan a load up to 100 gms. This balance can be obtained at a reasonable figure, and sensitive to 1/10 of a milligram (0.0001 gm.). In the section on Assaying the student will find two other forms—Pulp Scales and the Assay Balance— mentioned. The pulp

Scales are cheap, and sensitive to about 1/100 gm., and serve well for weighing quantities of 20 gms. and over. The assay balance is more sensitive than the chemical balance, but its range is shorter (from .5 gm. to .00005 gm.). The student who

The Core-Oven tests here described were made to obtain information regarding costs, efficiency, etc. of baking cores in an oil-fired oven, and two electric ovens, which were installed, early in 1920, in the core room of The Ohio Brass Co. and were used almost continuously during the rest of that year. Operating costs were rather high so a complete test was undertaken early in the last century.

The ovens will be referred to as Nos. 1, 2, and 3. Nos. 1 and 2 are electric ovens of different makes while No. 3 is an oil-fired oven made by the firm that made No. 2. The three are equipped with similar

OSA Sample Pumps – Vertical Tank Pump

on stream analyzer pumpFor pumping and feeding a slurry sample to a On-Stream-Analyzer (OSA), the classic pump to use is a vertical tank pump. The market for such OSA sample pump appears dominated by Metso. Irony is OSA’s are made by Outotec or Thermo Fisher Scientific, but you must go elsewhere to pump your slurry sample to the X-ray. What size should the OSA sample flow be?

Metso Sala Vertical Tank Slurry Pump, Model VF50 O5, complete with high chrome wear parts (casing, impeller, inlet), mild steel tank, steel shaft with no Shaft seal (no gland water required), 5 HP, 380 V, 60 Hz, 3-phase premium efficiency

Deslimer Drawing

The deslimer is provided with a central feed box, having a baffled bottom to break the velocity of the inflowing pulp. The bottom, or discharge chamber, has a clear-water inlet, which directs, the flow upward along the axis of the deslimer. The spigot is inserted in a movable holder, attached to the bottom of the discharge chamber, permitting an instant change in the diameter of opening without wetting the operator. Between the feed box and discharge chamber is a valve with sides parallel to the tank and suspended on the vertical center, and which can be raised or lowered by means of a

Vibrating Feeders

Electric Vibrating Feeder

The Electric Vibratory Feeder is a vibrator that provides an extremely efficient, simple and economical solution to the problem of making the most stubborn material flow freely. No longer need there be a sticking together of wet ore in the ore bin, or the arching over and hanging up of materials in hoppers and chutes with resulting lowered operating efficiency.

Ball Mills

Nowadays grinding mills are almost extensively used for comminution of materials ranging from 5 mm to 40 mm (3/16″—1 5/8″) down to varying product sizes. They have vast applications within different branches of industry such as for example the ore dressing, cement, lime, porcelain and chemical industries and can be designed for continuous as well as batch grinding.

Ball Mills

Ball mills can be used for coarse grinding as described for the rod mill. They will, however, in that application produce more fines and tramp oversize and will in any case necessitate installation of
