Platinum Rhodium Alloy Recycling
Reduce the cost of rare metal thermocouples
Rare metal thermocouples (Type B, Type R and Type S) contain the metals Platinum & Rhodium. It is beneficial to recycle these metals to reduce the costs of your rare metal thermocouples. You can offset the cost of any new sensors with the value of recovered rare metals.
For example, a customer came to us with a failed Type B thermocouple. Our quote for a replacement probe was £3100. We were able to recover £1200 worth of scrap platinum saving the customer 38% on the cost of a replacement thermocouple.
£6000 saved per year
This particular customer, has 100 Type B thermocouples of similar designs in a glass furnace and suffers around five failures a year through harsh use. This customer was able to save £6000 per year in replacement costs in this thermocouple design alone.
We offer excellent recovery prices, please contact us to see if we can reduce your costs.
