Are the Recycling Methods the Same for Different Types of Platinum-Rhodium Wire in Precious Metals Trading?

Platinum-rhodium wire comes in S-type, R-type, and B-type, each with its characteristics. I will talk about the recycling of platinum-rhodium wire and how the platinum and rhodium are recovered from it in the context of precious metals trading.


Precious Metal Recycling
Regardless of the type of platinum-rhodium wire, the first step in recycling is cleaning. We use a chemical solution to clean the dust and other impurities adhering to the surface of the platinum-rhodium wire. After cleaning, precise separation is performed. In this step, we use dissolving, precipitation, filtration, and other operations to separate the platinum and rhodium elements from other impurities in the wire.

However, when dealing with different types of platinum-rhodium wires, it is necessary to adjust the recycling strategy according to the specific composition and structural characteristics. For example, S-type and R-type platinum-rhodium wires need careful handling to maintain the balance of the platinum-rhodium ratio; whereas B-type platinum-rhodium wire has higher high-temperature resistance, so certain processing steps must be performed at higher temperatures.

That concludes our discussion on the recycling of platinum-rhodium wire. In fact, we can see that regardless of the type, as long as attention is paid during the operation, the recycling work can be successfully completed.
