Titration (titrimetric analysis) is a quantitative analytical method, which accompanies the entire chain of the metal mining process in order to improve the leaching process or minimise chemical consumption in purification. Among potential analytical procedures, titration has proven to be a robust and rather simple analytical technique that can be used at nearly any point in the process and is now automated to a large extent, from earliest sample preparation through to data storage.
Using a Mettler Toledo Excellence line automated titrator, such as the T70, metal leaching and concentration analysis via titration is made safe and easy. Features and modular additions such as a SmartSample reader, sample changers, burettes and LabX 2018 software, offer the ideal solution for titrimetric analysis. The easy operation of these robust and qualified analytical instruments as well as affordable cost, allow the use of titrators at all mining sites and in small testing labs.
The main advantages of titrimetric methods such as linearity and high precision will benefit the user. Typical precision of titrimetric analyses is around 0.5%. In the case of pure silver, the relative standard deviation can be as precise as 0.05%.
With a large database of standard titration methods for metal analysis, Mettler Toledo’s robust techniques, safe chemical handling,automation and integrated sample and result management, provide the perfect solution for your mining operation.
