Videos Gold Refining With Aqua Regia By Machine

Gold refining with aqua regia by machine, after the raw material is impure gold is melted in an induction furnace the form of grains or flakes to be fed to the Aqua region reactor. The Aqua region refining plant comprises of steps mix acid that is aqua reaction as the first step we're an impure alloy is dissolved.

Steam or heating issues as a step to enhance reaction and ensure good efficiency. this aqua region reactor is connected to a fume scrubber which takes care of neutralizing toxic fumes of acid mainly knocks generated due to nitric acid and also hydrochloric acid vapors.

Silver gets converted to white silver chloride crystals which are filtered in the silver chloride filter and once it is ensured that entire silver chloride is filtered.

Then the silver chloride crystals from the filter are collected and accumulated, these are then cemented in silver semen tation unit where it is reduced by a mixture of sodium hydroxide and glucose. The cemented silver is filtered casted into a node bar and is refined to pure silver of 999 quality an electrolytic silver refining setup.

The liquids after filtration of silver from electrolytic refining plant are also collected in liquid storage tanks. Clear gold chloride solution is transferred to another reactor where sodium metabisulfite is charged in as a reducing agent,  then this will precipitate gold from the solution, this is monitored by good pH control and viewing glass reactor for the right change in color.

The cemented gold is then filtered in the gold filter until it is ensured that entire gold is collected this wet gold is 99.5 quality and the liquids left out are transferred to exhaust liquid storage tanks.

Pure gold of 99.5 quality filtered from aqua region refining plant if it needs to be further purified should pass through the process of electrolytic gold refining in order to get 999.9 purity.

All the exhaust liquids are collected in storage tanks are passed through three tanks by overflow systems and then primarily in the first stage copper is cemented which is filtered and collected for further refining. The liquids after copper sementation are treated with alkali solution mixture of calcium and sodium hydroxide. These metallic hydroxy Tsar sedimented which are filtered in a filter press and then after clear water is discharged to drain.

The pure gold sand of 99.5 generated from the Aqua region process is first dried in an oven or it can be pure gold of 99.9 from electrolytic process. This gold is then melted in an induction furnace where after it follows the process depending on the configuration of gold bar desired, for gold bars up to 100 GMS configuration the molten gold is collected in a pre-designed mold for the desired configuration and strips, these gold strips are then passed through the rolling mill where the rollers are set to get the right thickness of the strip's getting converted two sheets.

These sheets are then passed through the cutting press with set of punching so that gold blocks are cut as desired these gold blocks are then annealed to remove oxide by a flame and then cooled and cleaned.

For gold bars above 100 GMS up to killobar configuration. The molten gold is collected in a pre-designed mold for the desired configuration. This is then cooled in the cooling table where bar is formed. A burner flame is used in order that oxides are not formed this is mainly a kneeling step and then the gold bar is cleaned.

Gold is the softest and most malleable, metal it can be pressed extremely thin crafted into various shapes even drawn out to form a fine wire. Gold isn't affected by water or oxygen as many metals are so it doesn't rust. Most gold comes from low deposits also called bein deposits concentrations of gold and other metals in the cracks of rocks. Low deposits require hard rock mining, the process of removing gold-bearing rock called or by drilling and blasting

Miners to send more than half kilometer underground there they drill holes for explosives using what's called a long whole air drill. They drill in a specific pattern set out in a plan prepared by the mines engineers. The engineers know exactly where those veins of gold are thanks to the mining companies geologists who studied or samples.

The company collects these samples by drilling deep into the rock at 50-meter intervals. These diamond drill cores as they're called are up to 100 meters long and measure three point five centimeters in diameter.

Gold in its natural state isn't cure it's usually intertwined with silver and other metals, so the mind or has to be processed afterward to isolate and extract the gold. A metric ton of ore yields only about six point five grams of gold. After blasting the rock apart with explosives or miners use what's called a mock machine to transfer the or two cars headed to the main shaft and then above ground to the mill. There a crusher reduces the large chunks into smaller rocks about the size of gravel a mil then processed into a pulp

The factory adds a water and cyanide solution than another mill and flows into large settling tanks. The wet solids being heavier sinks to the bottom, the water the top drains to another area. They transfer the solids to an agitation tank and blowing air the oxygen steps off a chemical reaction between the cyanide and the goal triggering the gold to dissolve and leach into the surrounding water.  

Drum filters then separate the water from the solids. This water now joins the water that was separated earlier they pour in zinc powder to solidify the dissolve gold and four pieces containing both zink and gold. To smelt it into bars they first have to mix several chemicals, manganese dioxide, flew right, silica flower, borax and sodium nitrate. 

This chemical mix called flux will separate the gold from the impurities. Into the smelter whose temperature is a fiery 1,600 degrees Celsius. The rotate smelters so that the contents heat evenly, over two and a half hours the heavier gold eventually sinks to the bottom while the impurities called slag float to the surface.  They pour out the slag taking a sample to make sure it contains gold or no.

The gold cooled slightly so they reheat - 1600 degrees celsius, then cast into bar-shaped molds. The gold takes about four minutes to harden, and then another hour to cool completely in a basin of cold water. Then bullion cleaned of dirt remaining combustion. Gold bars or ingots, this stage the gold is eighty percent pure.
