Shor AR3G Aqua Regia Gold & Platinum Refining System

One of the safest and most advanced aqua regia gold refining systems available.

The Shor AR3G Aqua Regia Gold & Platinum Refining System is ideally suited for refining of electronic scrap as well as jeweler’s polishing and bench sweeps. This system will also refine jewelry, nuggets, dust and all other forms of gold. Additionally, it will also refine catalytic converters and all platinum group metals.

This is the latest iteration of Shor's very popular line of refining systems and is the most advanced yet.  The magnetic stirrer and continuous heater are well suited for slow-to-dissolve materials like high silver content jewelry, heavy gents rings and platinum group metals.  An excellent unit for refining catalytic converters.

In about 2-3 hours, it will refine up to 16 ounces of metal per batch (the weight of stones, ceramics, plastic, etc. content doesn't matter).

This system generally pays for itself several times over in just the first batch.

100% gold recovery.

This system includes a very simple-to-use test kit that will detect as little as four parts of gold per million parts of solution, ensuring that no dissolved gold is lost.

99.95+% purity.

A very easy to use and simple test kit ensures that no dissolved impurities end up in your refined pure gold. Learn more about the included test kit

No nitric acid, only muriatic.

This system uses Shor’s MX3, an equally-powerful, non-hazardous alternative. The MX3 dissolving agent also reduces fumes by 90-95%. Learn more about Shor's MX3

Easy to use.

While this system is an excellent choice for experienced refiners, it is designed for people with little or no refining experience.  

No acid fumes exhausted.

The AR system employs an integrated, powerful scrubber that removes all fumes that are emitted in the system as your metal dissolves.

Completely self-contained.

Everything's in one container, eliminating the need to move solutions around between dissolving and precipitating.
