AHK’s New Copper Commodities Analysis Laboratory
AHK Villiers Laboratory
As AHK continues to succeed as a global leader within the Inspection and Analysis Industry, investing in our laboratories forms a key part of the growth strategy. State of the art instrumentation, enhanced facilities and dedicated employees are fundamental to ensure that we deliver a high quality service that our clients demand.
As part of this growth strategy we would like to introduce Villiers. AHK’s new laboratory dedicated to copper analysis for a variety of global commodities. Located a short distance from our flagship John Knight Laboratory, Villiers joins the network of UK laboratories.
All forms of copper bearing commodities, including base metal concentrates, electronic scrap, blister, anode slimes, copper mattes, reverts and complex secondary materials are analysed at the Villiers Laboratory.
The new laboratory has significantly increased our analytical footprint. Increasing analyses operational space by up to 54%.
Custom built fume-cupboards with a newly designed over-bench extraction system ensure our team deliver high quality analyses in a clean environment.
A state of the art chemical effluent treatment system and pH plant add to the high specification of this facility to ensure we minimise our impact on the local environment.
Relocating this analyses to this dedicated laboratory expands our capacity and capability to accommodate new assay business at our John Knight Laboratory.
“Moving to Villiers has given the Copper department a great working facility, offering us the space we need for an extremely busy department whilst opening up capacity for future growth. The site is ideal for our operations, large laboratories set up specifically for the analysis of Copper. The facilities are second to none leaving the whole team happy with their working environment and excited about the future”. Matthew Renshaw, Villiers Copper Laboratory.
