Installing a silver recovery system helps to maximize the environmental safety of your darkroom. Plug in power supply and submerse cell in fixer batch. recovery buckets used to recover the silver from old film fixer. Essentially you have a bucket of steel wool that the fixer (with silver precipitate) 

2002. Q. Wish to know about the silver extraction method from waste hypo solution and the details about the machine and tools using the extraction. I am engaged in the business of silver extraction from the waste hypo/fixer and waste photo films. At present even though I am extracting silver successfully my procedure is very lengthy, risky and slow process. To recover silver, the used fixer is pumped through a cartridge system that extracts the silver from the chemical. There are two types of film-developing systems: tray (or hand) developing, and machine developing. The two types of developing systems have different methods for silver recovery. Silver recovery from waste fixer/hypo solutions can't be done by only learning the formulas from chemistry & metallurgy books. It requires practical knowledge & perfection. The value and scarcity of silver makes recovery economically feasible. Approximately 80 percent of the silver in the film emulsion is transferred to the fixer solution; the remaining 20 percent forms the radiographic image. There are three basic methods of silver recovery from the fixer solution. If you're talking about recovering silver from fixer, the excess thiosulfate in solution prevents the formation of insoluble silver chloride. (Just like fixing film.) To the best of my knowledge, all methods of silver recovery involve reducing the silver somehow (either electrolytically or chemically).

How to recover silver from fixer/Silver Recovery from the fixer/Hypo/Bleach. Silver Recovery from fixer, Hypo and bleach, etc. is the subject about which I receive countless mails every month. Over the past six months, a lot of people have asked me to write something about the silver recovery from fixer etc. The fixer will exchange silver atoms for iron atoms, and you'll get a silver-rich sludge at the bottom of the container. The right way to do it, if you've got the equipment, is to use an You could also run the fixer through a steel wool silver recovery canister. It will need to be smelted to recover the silver and the total costs may be more than the worth of the silver. I guess my recommendation would be the zinc powder. We can recover the silver from x-ray film and from your silver collection bucket. For the film, we could also help you coordinate freight or transportation. I think you are talking about a small filter that is called an MRC or CRC that is used to exchange silver from iron from fixer solutions.
