Pulp samples are either tested at an onsite lab or forwarded to an external 3rd party lab for testing. Prep facilities are designed to stand alone or operate within a complex, including gold and non-precious metals testing laboratories.
Advantages of onsite sample prep:
• Save money by shipping much smaller weights. i.e., 10kg unprepared sample vs 500g prepared pulp.
• Reduce turnaround time from 3rd party testing labs, where the bottleneck is in sample prep.
