Argen Jewelry :: Melting

Melting

 

The First Melt

  • After grinding down the received materials, solids are mixed with flux and melted.  The flux helps separate metal from non-metal.  Upon melting, the material separates into slag and metal.  We then take the slag and re-process it to see if there is any metal left behind - unique in this industry.  The helps ensure maximum yield.

The Second Melt

  • The metal is melted a second time and a sample is taken in a vacuum pin tube.  This method is superior to drilling as it ensures a homogeneous mixture and accurate sampling.
