Are there anomalies or contaminants (both organic and inorganic components) in your flotation process or smelter concentrate? EAG Laboratories provides analysis of filtercake,  diluents or extractants for anomalies. We also investigate questions regarding the gases being produced that may relate to these anomalies, as well as troubleshoot off-colors or off-odors in the process.

We are not just a testing lab – we are a group of passionate chemists that piece the data together to determine what may be the source of observed anomalies or questions that you may have. We are also consultants that can collaborate with your troubleshooting team to help expedite determining a design of experiment or a path of questions that need to be answered to solve your problems: we bring our expertise and knowledge of materials and processes to the table and save our clients considerable time and money in their problem solving – by being an integral part of their troubleshooting team.
