Recycling & refining of precious metals

One of the unique properties of precious metals, such as Platinum, Rhodium and Palladium is that they can be recycled without quality loss. Due to its limited reserves, the recycling & refining of precious metals becomes increasingly important. For temperature measurement, precious metals are often applied because of their unique properties, such as their resistance to high temperatures, chemically inertness, excellent conductivity and resistance to tarnishing and corrosion. Typical applications of precious metal thermocouples are in high temperature environments to measure temperatures up to 1850°C.

’In collaboration with our sister company IAM Drijfhout, Kamet offers recycling and refining services for precious metals used in temperature measurement applications.’’

Besides reducing the negative impact on the environment, the high intrinsic market value of precious metals makes recycling and refining also attractive from an economic point of view. When temperature sensors with precious metals reach end of life state, material can thus be sent back to Kamet for recycling.

Recycling and refining service

Kamet’s recycling and refining services for precious metals start with weighing the precious metal on a calibrated scale. A material analysis is then performed to determine the different elements of the batch. Based on this analysis, the best recycle and refining procedure can be determined to retrieve the pure precious metals. Even from contaminated precious metals, an estimated yield can be calculated. Kamet provides a credit note for the precious metal that is returned.

IAM Drijfhout

Our daughter company IAM Drijfhout is a supplier of precious metals for industrial, analytical, and medical applications. IAM Drijfhout works closely together with all major international manufacturers, resulting in a wide range of high-quality products being offered in the field of precious metals. Some of the precious metals supplied are Gold, Silver, Platinum, Iridium, Rhodium, and Palladium. IAM Drijfhout focuses on reliability and service, for example by offering an advantageous recycling service.
