    Silver Magnet Silver Recovery Device

    Silver Magnet

    an affordable silver recovery solution to
    remove most of the silver from your spent fixer.

    the silver magnet is a small electrolytic device that can
    electroplate most the silver from a gallon of spent fixer in 24 hours.
    the cathode can hold 28-32 troy oz of silver before it is removed from the unit and traded in for $$$.

    no minimums or exorbitant fees.

    please contact me if interested: silvermagnet@nanianphoto.com

    thanks

    silver magnet and trickle tanks

    i wanted to let folks know that in addition to the silver magnet i am now distributing trickle tanks.

    just a run down on the difference between the two

    a silver magnet removes silver from wash water and fixer through electrolysis.
    it can get a lot of the silver out, but leaves around 50 parts / million in your waste stream.

    a trickle tank will remove more silver from your waste water and spent fixer.
    it will get your waste stream down to around 5 parts / million or less.
    it removes the silver through ionic transfer.

    when you send in the silver magnet's electrode you get paid for the silver on the electrode.
    you don't get paid for all of it, there are some fees involved, but not much.
    the bottom half of the trickle tanks are mailed to a refiner and there is a fee for processing it, no cash is sent to you.

    to give you an idea of the prices ..
    the silver magnet is less than 50$ ( does not including shipping )
    and the trickle tanks are less than 160$ ( does not including shipping )

    the replacement cathode for the silver magnet is less than 20$ ( does not including shipping )
    and the replacement bottom half of the trickle tank is less than 100$ ( does not including shipping )

    you are interested or have any question regarding silver recovery

    good news for folks in canada !

    i am waiting for an email from a canadian refiner
    that will take the full silver magnet cathodes
    in exchange for canadian dollars. no minimums &C just like the
    refiner in the states.

    i will be posting more about this soon, but this is great news for people in canada because
    they don't have to ship to the states (customs ) ...
    and then exchange american dollars for canadian ones.

    the company was happy to offer their services.

    thanks for your support!

    i am happy to announce some great news for folks in canada are thinking of using the silver magnet!

    i just got news from Environmental Control Systems in barrie ontario that they would like to take the silver flake from you.
    they will supply dhl shipping from you to their site, and supply you with about 90% of the $$ from your full cathode.

    this will allow you to send the cathode directly to them, so you don't have to deal with customs, brokers and currency exchange.

    thanks for your interest and support !

    This is awesome John! And so cheep too (as compared with some whoop-dee-doo instruments that I last knew about)!

    How long does it take to accumulate the silver? A full cathode means what when the rubber meets the road? Say I'm developing about 12 4x5's and a roll of 120 per week, and about 20 test strips (5x7's) and maybe what.. 10 11x14's, per week, and say I throw out my fixer before it is fully spent (I like fresh dependable fixer you can hang your hat on for the time it requires). Since I don't know what the workload of other photographers is like, maybe you could give me an idea from that? I'm guessing it would be more than a year to get a full cathode. What do you think?
    I love the wilderness and I love my trail cameras, all Fuji's! :) GA645, GW690 III, and the X100 which I think is the best trail camera ever invented (to date).

    hi perry

    the number i have heard is that there is about 1/4 troy oz of silver in a gallon of spent fixer ...
    so depending on how often you use a gallon of fixer to exhaustion ...

    you don't need to wait for the cathode to be full to send it in ...
    if you want to send it in with less, its up to you.
    or ... if you want to just hang on to the cathode when it is full
    get a new one and stock up on silver until the price goes even higher,
    or sell it to a jeweler, or a chemist or put it in a safe deposit box, that is fine too

    the main thing is that you are getting it out of the waste stream.

    Hello Analog Users,

    First off, Thank you for choosing Environmental Control Systems to be a part of your group. We are a 40+ year old Silver Recovery and Waste Disposal Company located throughout Canada with the Head Office in Barrie Ontario. As John Nanian mentioned we have established an agreement to Refine the silver from your Silver Magnet Cathodes with NO shipping Costs! Payment will be 10X the current Silver Price Per Pound less an $85 Refining Fee for Canadian Members.

    As an Example: if you provided us 5lbs of silver and the price of silver was 18USD we would pay you $180 per pound for 5lbs = $900. Subtract the $85 refining fee leaves a payment to you in the amount of $815!

    For those who would like an estimate please email me your usage time and silver weight. At ECS we accredit much of our success and growth to our honest and ethical business practices. We will remove the silver from the cathode and weight the quality silver, pay you accordingly and look forward to receiving your product over and over again.

    TO REQUEST A PICK UP OF YOUR SILVER MAGNET CATHODE
    Environmental Control Systems as created a custom portal to make these requests easy and efficient, please visit and bookmark www.ecs-cares.com/apug to request a pick up.

    Look forward to hearing from you!

    This may sound like a completely stupid question: but what's the impetus behind paying 10x cost for recovered silver? Also, is it open to US members?

    Ah, I get it now, 5/8th fractional value thereof.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
