Precious Metals Refinery South Africa


Scope of supply: Rapid accurate analysis of Pt, Pa and Au was required at Anglo Platinum’s Precious Metal Refinery (PMR) in South Africa.
 
An innovative solution was implemented by IMP whereby “lollipop” samples are extracted from the crucibles during the melting process. A specially designed “quick chill” sampler from IMP is used and allows the samples to be in a form conducive to fully automatic processing in an HS-FF milling machine.
 
The samples are milled (all chips are collected and metal accounting is done) and automatically presented to a Thermo 4460 Spectrometer for analysis. A total cycle time of less than 5 minutes from sample insertion to the milling machine allows for rapid useful data to be available for effective process control.
