Electronic Scrap

Let the solution settle, then pour and filter the solution into another glass vessel 2 whilst being careful not to disturb the sludge at the bottom. So has the author verified that this is Printed Circuit Boards, Connectors and Components have high levels of precious metal content. Let it settle, then filter it off including the sludge. Long-term exposure can result in shortness of breath, chronic cough, and significant weight loss, accompanied by fatigue and general weakness.

We have developed some very good economical, less time consuming, easy and pollution free methods for silver recovery from X-Ray films. From CPUs we can recover gold through aqua regia. Use a magnet to separate all gold-plated steel parts, as you need a different process to extract it.

Recover Gold From Computer Parts Extract Gold From Motherboards

After a week, the acid darkened and the gold slowly flaked off into dust. Any pair will work as long as It is safety rated and solvent rated. The gold was pulled off.

Plate inside box is "NOT" pure silver. I was always under the assumption that gold was refined with cyanide. Exposure to these fumes is known to cause metal fume fever. After cutting up a few circuit boards to remove the precious gold-bearing parts, [Josehf] threw these parts into a mixture of muriatic acid and hydrogen peroxide.

But I know where my hole is. As in most things, once some thing is worth a lot, it goes into the hands of the big boys, leaving those that could really use it out of the picture. The resulting reaction should turn purple.

Recycling Secrets. Always make sure you are in full view of someone when refining with these chemicals, if you breathe in respectable amounts of these fumes, it can knock you unconscious. It should be square with pine sticking out all the way around it.

Salvaging Gold From Old Electronics Hackaday

AAhh and they boil away the mercury D: With some more chemical knowledge you could even figure out the remaining amount of acid titration and the amount of sodium hydroxide you would need to neutralize it, it neutralizes into table salt and water. I have recently been learning about the refining process, but need to find a supplier for the CPUs, etc.

Not easy living as an underdog i guess. I tried the Subzero and managed to just melt some plastic, I am a recent college grad in the field of chemistry so I understand the volatility of the chemicals that may be involved. Make sure that you wash and dry the beaker completely. In time, anemia and general weakness, chiefly in the muscles of the wrists, develop. Ive no interest but I sold one of my old rockcrushers to a guy whos running PCBs through it.

If you remove the memory chips and fingers you will get a good pay check out of doing so. The first is pyrometallurgy, which burns the gold off using high temperatures.

Stop screwing around. This is done by unplugging the computer and then opening the case. When we talk about CN process people think that CN process is used for gold recovery only. Please someone help me fix this gray mess and get my gold out.
