An Introduction to the Electrolysis Process

Copper refining to an almost pure state done by electrolysis is an excellent example of the process. Blister copper is considered to be a highly pure form of copper around 99%. However, in today's market, this level of purity is still not enough; as a result, the blister copper is purified further using an electrolysis process known as

Refining of lead from lead battery recycling STC Italy

Sep 11, 2019The pyrometallurgical Lead refining process is one of the most important procedures of lead battery recycling. This process is also known as "Softening of Lead" because the metal is softened after the removal of some impurities which are present in the raw lead coming from lead battery recycling. It would be more correct to call only the process of antimony, arsenic and tin removing "softening".

Refining Gold HowStuffWorks

The final stage of gold production- refining- involves removing impurities that remain after the smelting process. Refining companies receive dor bars, as well as scrap gold, and reliquefy the metal in a furnace. Workers add borax and soda ash to the molten metal, which separates the pure gold from other precious and less precious metals.
