Metal Separation & Recovery:

STEEL WOOL FOR ELECTROWINNING, METAL SEPARATION & RECOVERY

Steel wool rolls or steel wool fibers are commonly used for METAL SEPARATION to lower or separate GOLD, SILVER, NICKEL & COPPER and other heavy metal ion contaminants.  Common uses are in discharge water, fixer solutions from X ray film processors, and spent baths from Electroless Plating operations.  Since steel wool is made from low carbon steel and has a high surface to weight ratio it is an excellent choice for metal separation and recovery, also known as the metal ion exchange process.
