PRESS RELEASE: The 4,000ft2 (371.6m2) facility secures the company's place among the nation's top precious metal recycling companies, setting the stage for continued growth and matchless performance.
Maria Piastre, president of Metallix, said: "We are extremely pleased that after years of meticulous research, design, and implementation, we are now analysing precious metal-bearing materials in our cutting-edge facility - the scope of which will enhance our value to our customers, suppliers, and business partners."
The company stated that the custom-built analysis laboratory, which was designed by Metallix's director of technology Claudio Ferrini, demonstrates Metallix's commitment to progress and accuracy while also addressing its long-standing need for more space. Three times the size of Metallix's former lab, the new environment features upgraded balances as well as new cupellation furnaces for fire assay testing, XRF equipment for preliminary analysis, and ICP instruments. All equipment runs in a humidity- and temperature-controlled climate, ensuring optimal performance. The lab also provides a superior level of safety and comfort for Metallix's lab employees. Extremely efficient filtration and ventilation systems keep employees safe from contaminants, fumes, and dust, and ensure that emissions entering the atmosphere are similarly clean.
