This refining system consists of a large PPl cylinder inclined to an angle of 25°, it continuously rotates by means of a special motor, with the possibility to adjust the rotation speed. The rotation forces the grains to rub against each other and consequently a rapid and effcient dissolution process is induced.
A Pyrex glass condenser is positioned externally to the tumbler with cold water circulating inside that allows for partial acid recovery and initial fume neutralization.
Another advantage is that it can work throughout the night without supervision.
The aqua regia refining process is used to refine gold alloys using a combination of acids and chemical products. The aqua regia solution consists of a mixture of hydrochloric acid HCL and nitric acid HNO3.
