Recycling the Recycler

Even if you are in an industry that uses silver recovery columns, here’s an interesting fact. When they have outlived their effective life in your operations, the recycling columns themselves can be recycled. In effect, you’ll be recycling your recycling device. You will be pleased to know that these devices themselves, once they have outlived their life as recycling devices, still contain valuable quantities of electrolytic silver flake.

We know this is the case because here at Specialty Metals Smelters and Refiners, we recycle hundreds, if not thousands, of recovery columns every year.
