|Metal bank activity consists in selling and purchasing pure gold, silver, platinum and palladium, according to real-time quotations that are received via satellite, but also in melting of alloys, objects, manufacturing scraps and wastes, trimmings, wreckage and powders in order to get ingots (bars) that will then be analyzed and refined to obtain the pure metals contained in them. The working phases are subdivided into:
Casting: melting of alloys, objects, manufacturing scraps and wastes, trimmings and wreckage by high temperatures, that is to say 1200 degrees, in order to obtain bars or alloy ingots.
Powder and processing residue treatment: powders and processing residues are at first burnt off in high-temperature ovens and subsequently subjected to grinding processes to obtain a fine powder. The powder is then mixed in order to make it homogeneous, and consequently analyzed and melted.
Precious metal analysis: it is carried out by cupellation, that is to say a method to determine the percentage of pure metal present in an alloy. The analysis laboratory is provided with cupellation furnaces, furnaces for ash analysis and equipments for acid partition to remove the noxious substances produced. In addition, we are provided of a weight room and we carry out working process control and bar marking.
Refining: the chemical-mechanical treatment by which pure precious metals (gold, silver, platinum, palladium) are extracted from the alloys. During this procedure, residues with interesting properties and suitable for use in other fields are obtained. In a broad sense, the procedure includes working processes that can radically change the aspect of the source, that is to say to produce a metal from minerals.
