I want to take this opportunity to thank Argen for the excellent, efficient and professional manner in which our gold scraps return was handled. I cannot believe my return. It was 50% greater than the previous years when we had not sent our refining to Argen. I cannot begin to speculate what I could have saved. We look forward to many years of doing business with Argen.

Previous to using Argen for my refining, I researched over 10 different companies, and found that I received the best return from The Argen Corporation. I would highly recommend using Argen for refining your precious metals.

I was skeptical to use a new scrap refining company but my sales rep was reassuring, so I sent my materials to Argen. I was becoming nervous when I got the call, "This is Argen Refining, we've processed your metal and you will receive a check for $3,780." I was expecting between $500-$600. Thank you Argen!

I had used other scrap refining services for years until I recently sent my scrap to Argen. I was pleasantly surprised with the results. The most I had previously received back on a refine was $400. With Argen I received $2,400!

Dr. Theo Pappas, Enfield, CT

I expected to get $800 for my scrap material, but Argen gave me over $10,000! I’ll never take cash on the spot again. With Argen’s scientific and innovative approach to refining, you truly receive the most for your material.

Sending your Scrap

Sending Your Scrap to Argen

The refining process begins when you ship your dental scrap to Argen via FedEx. Argen pays all shipping costs and insures your shipment at no extra charge. Upon receipt we carefully photo document the contents of your package under strict security protocol and email a confirmation of your package’s arrival with an estimated date of completion. Most settlements will be ready within 10 business days.

The Melting Process

In preparation for the first melt, a disk mill is used to crush the scrap, and proprietary flux is added to extract even the smallest particles of precious metals. After the first melt, the materials are cooled, the slag is removed and the metals are placed back inside an induction furnace for a second melt.

The Melting Process
Vaccuum Pin Tube Method

Vacuum Pin Tube Method

After being melted a second time, a small sample it taken via capillary action through a narrow glass cylinder, called a vacuum pin tube. The sample cools instantly and is then cut into three sections for processing. Using an induction furnace ensures a homogeneous melt and an accurate representative sample.

ICP Machine – State of the Art Technology

These precise samples are dissolved by expert chemists before being analyzed by our ICP machine. The Inductively Coupled Plasma machine, or ICP for short, is the most powerful and accurate assaying machine in the world. It uses the power of a plasma flame to split electrons.
