SILVER RECOVERY FROM WASTE FIXER SOLUTION AND X-RAY/PHOTOGRAPHIC FILM. During the photographic film processing, Silver leaches into the fixer solution (Sodium Thio-Sulphate) from the photographic film and forms Silver Thio-Sulphate complex ions. The fixer is considered exhausted after becoming silver-rich (~ 7 gm/l), as it can no more serve the purpose of fixing the film in effective manner.

a photography instructor told me to put my exhausted fixer in a pail with some steel wool and leave it alone for awhile.

Supposedly the steel wool attracts the silver, leaving a clear, silver-free solution on top which can be poured off. The scrap film and used hypo were incinerated leaving behind silver residue in the ash.

This is not in. A process is disclosed for recovering silver sulfide from a spent photographic fixer solution, which contains silver. The process is particularly suited for treating the fixer solution in a manner which enables recycling of the solution giving rise to considerable reduction in cost of fixer solution and reduced environmental pollution.

Hence, the steel wool capture. Bill. For small volume users like amateur photographers, metallic replacement is usually a good method for recovering silver from photographic processing effluent. In this method, iron metal (steel wool) reacts with the silver in the fixer solution.

The iron replaces the silver in solution, while the less active metal (silver) settles out as a solid. These include gold, silver, all photographic and print waste - fixer, developer, plate developer, solvents, ink, ink tins, blanket wash, X-ray film, aluminium plates.

latest in recovery equipment which makes possible the smelting and refining of lower grade wastes containing precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum and palladium.
