KORAS® Gold Recovery System GRC

The GRC Gold Recovery System is especially to recover gold from grinding and polishing sludge, scraps, sweepings and ashes. As a matter of course the recovery of gold from solutions such as rinsing baths, polishing baths etc. is also possible.
It consists of a completely new concept of a dissolving unit and an electrolytic cell. In one step, the precious metals can be recovered directly from the above mentioned waste.
The dissolving at room temperature additionally saves energy costs.

KORAS® Electro-Polishing Machine Aqua-Pol®

Electro-polishing is the most gentle and cleanest way to give jewelry pieces a pure surface, for further process. The new Aqua-Pol® compact system achieves this quickly and economically with precision and only requires little space. Furthermore KORAS® has developed process liquids whose qualities are considerably superior to standard electrolyte. Effectiveness in a wide range of applications, easy handling and a long service life – the electrolyte from Koras GmbH achieves measureable advantages.

KORAS® Gold Refining Tumbler TB

This gold refining tumbler is a new technology compared to the static refining plants. This refining unit consists of a PPH-tumbler inclined to 30° and rotated by a motor, with the possibility to adjust the rotation speed. Thanks to the rotation forces, the gold grains continuously rub against each other and remove the silver chloride. This procedure reduces the complete dissolution time. The unit is available in different sizes from 2,5 kg to max. 360 kg output per production period.

News & Innovations

KORAS® Electro-Polishing Machine Aqua-Pol® Micro

especially for small parts

Electro-polishing is the most gentle and cleanest way to give jewelry pieces in an industrial production process a smooth, ultra-pure surface, for further processes. Our Aqua-Pol® product lines achieve this very efficiently with precision and the system requires only a small amount of space. This is possible by its ingenious design with internal running rotors.

Applications:

Suitable especially for very small parts without hanger or loop
(bulk volume 250 – 300 ml per process)
Jewelry and medical pieces made of
• gold
• silver etc.
• polishing of cast, 3D-printing, electroforming pieces
• polishing of filigree parts without changing the shape
• cleaning of tarnished pieces

Decisive: the electrolyte
We have developed process liquids whose qualities are considerably superior to standard electrolyte. Effectiveness in a wide range of applications, easy handling and a long service life – the electrolyte from Koras GmbH achieves measureable advantages.

Circular Vibrators
This is a universal machine used for all the wet processes of finishing –Roughing, Sanding and Polishing on jewelry parts, all ferrous alloys especially stainless steel.
The machine uses vibration effect that is transmitted to a polyurethane tank by an adjustable masses vibrator. Thus, the materials placed inside the tank gets three kinds of motion: centrifugal, helical and vibrant. Their combined action, together with water and abrasive materials(with liquid compounds or paste) makes it possible to achieve superior levels of finishing.

Magnetic Shiners
Used mainly in jewelry and in dental machines. Magnetic Shiners are used for polishing of jewelry with stones and jewels that have small undercuts and cavities that are difficult to reach.
They are widely used in polishing of small parts and non-ferrous metals.
The machine uses a strong magnetic field that brings fast, rotary movement inside a tank that contains water, a special compound and small stainless steel needles. The movement created is of centrifugal, elliptical type that allows the needles to reach any point of the objects being treated.
