Automated Wet Chem System Delivered to FLS for a Major Geochemistry Laboratory

A customer in Western Australia was manually performing all of their peroxide fusions and aqua regia digestions on their pulverised samples and gold prills from fire assay. The customer’s goal was to automate their existing processes and improve productivity. 

HF’s expertise in this field enables us to offer the customer cost-effective solutions that streamline and automate their processes to improve productivity. This made us the best choice to tackle this kind of project.

The robust and innovative system is designed to prepare and process samples for peroxide fusion and aqua regia digestion before analysis. HF has a proven track record of building large, high-quality, automated robotic laboratory systems for the mining industry, including previous experience with aqua regia digestions.

The system operates successfully and can perform all of these dangerous processes safely and efficiently, which improves the health and safety of the operators and allows them to focus on performing other tasks within the laboratory.
