SAMPLE MULTI-LOADER FOR BULLION BLOCKS

Drop all lead foil packed samples onto red hot Magnesia Blocks inside furnace with a single motion, minimize heat losses & assayer’s exposure to lead oxide vapours.

20-fold productivity gains.

We recommend using the sample multi-loaders forks in combination with our assay lead foil packing pliers. They help conforming the lead foil (along with sample and inquarts) into a sphere, and avoid any possible blockages during the loading of the samples in the blocks. This is particularly critical when analysing white gold that requires 8g of lead foil,  and that therefore results in a much larger final sample that can clog the holes of the loader if the lead foil is not thoroughfully packed.  

 

Models:

  • ML10-40:  Automatically loads up to  four 10 HB Mabor Magnesia Blocks
  • ML12-48:  Automatically loads up to four 12 HB-L Mabor Magnesia Blocks
