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 in these columns. Approximately every 6 months, a new column is rotated in and an old column is taken out of service. When they’re removed, we send them to a company called Hallmark Refinery located in Bellingham, WA. They’ve been professionally refining photographic solution silver waste for over 50 years. We’re occasionally asked how much silver is extracted from 2.5 gallons. The simple answer is extremely little. Even after the hundreds of gallons that we run through these columns, and after we pay for a new column, pay to ship it to Bellingham, and pay for the processing, we’re lucky to see a positive number. However, the key to all this processing is that we remove the silver according to EPA standards and you have a product that takes the solutions away from your office.
