Highest Weighing Accuracy
Weighing plays an important role in metal mining, such as for exact precious metal content determination using the well-established gravimetric fire assay or for weighing-in large amounts of ore samples. METTLER TOLEDO balances are highly reliable and offer high-precision weighing both in the lab and when working under harsh and dusty mining conditions.

Reliable Heavy Duty Weighing
Incoming raw ore or refined metals are easily weighed with METTLER TOLEDO’s innovative and reliable heavy duty weighing solutions. Whether transporting the recovered materials by truck or on conveyers, METTLER TOLEDO offers the ideal scales to meet every demand.

Extraction & Concentration

Exact and Robust Process Monitoring
Process monitoring in mines demands robust and reliable solutions. In-line measurement solutions from METTLER TOLEDO master even the most demanding conditions of temperature or pressure optimizing process quality and throughput. Our solutions include several types of sensors, transmitters, housings and cleaning systems.

Purification & Finishing

Optimize Production with Just One Click
Titration is a quantitative analytical method used to determine metal content at various process stages in order to improve the leaching process or minimize chemical consumption in purification. METTLER TOLEDO’s One Click™ Titration Solutions provide accurate results at the touch of a finger.

Convenient and Accurate Regulus Weighing

With our Micro and Ultra Micro Balance, characterized by low repeatability and short stabilization time, weighing of precious metal samples for fire assay becomes reliable and fast. A specially designed funnel set allows accurate weighing of even the smallest samples, such as prill and regulus, in a very short time.

Reduced Rail Car Weighing Time

Weighing coupled railroad cars is time consuming as each car needs to be positioned for weighing. Thanks to the coupled in-motion rail scale and the IND9R86 rails scale controller coupling and uncoupling of rail cars becomes obsolete. Weighing occurs precisely whilst cars are moving at 3 – 5 mph, which is much faster and safer than static weighing.
