Here ‘s the device that we use to process spent solutions:
Spent solutions are slowly pumped through these two blue columns. Silver from the spent fixer is attracted to the iron contained in these columns. Approximately every 6 months, a new column is rotated in and an old column is taken out of service for processing. When they’re removed, we ship them to Hallmark Refinery located in Bellingham, WA. Hallmark has been professionally refining photographic solution silver waste for many years. We’re occasionally asked how much silver is extracted from 2.5 gallons. The simple answer is for dental, very little. Even after the hundreds of gallons that we run through these columns, pay for a replacement column, pay to ship it for processing and pay for the processing itself, we’re lucky to see a positive dollar number from the silver extracted. However, the key to all this processing is that we have properly removed the silver according to EPA standards and you have a product that takes the spent solutions away from your office.
