Wet chemistry plays a critical role in mining analysis

The mining industry relies heavily on analytical chemistry in wet labs for various purposes, including ore identification, extraction process optimization, and environmental monitoring. Wet chemistry techniques such as acid digestion and gravimetric analysis help determine metal content in ore samples, while analytical chemistry techniques like atomic spectroscopy and X-ray fluorescence are used for elemental analysis. These methods also play a crucial role in analyzing wastewater and tailings to detect contaminants and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. 

A complete line of products is available through Avantor for your analytical lab, including laboratory glassware, plasticware, filter paper, fume hoods, laboratory furniture, laboratory hot plates and hot plate/stirrers.
