Crushing, grinding and classification
Future Materials has crushing, grinding and classification equipment for various particle sizes ranging from cm to µm at its disposal. After the crushing and grinding process is complete the sample could go through equipment to split the material into the desired particle sizes and fractions.
Chemical analysis is the study of materials and products chemical composition. Most chemical analysis methods use advanced equipment and instruments to determine via calibration the concentration of a substance in a sample.
Pyrometallurgy is a type of extractive metallurgy where the chemical metallurgy cover the extraction of metals from ore and further into refining processes. The physical metallurgy cover the metals physical and mechanical properties as well as the effect of alloy, heat treatment and material design.
Materials characterisation provides valuable information about a materials macro and micro structure. The use of microscopy, both optical and electron microskopy, allow us to obtain information about material failure, mapping and quantification of particles, phases and structures. The results from performing a material characterisation technique on a sample could uncover defects and problems in a material.
Hydrometallurgy is the skill and knowledge of the extraction of metals via leaching of raw materials, concentrates or intermediates dissvolved in water. The next step is the precipitation process examplified by electrolysis in an aqueous solution.
