How to choose a metal scavenger?

> back to the scavengers FAQ page

Please refer to the metal scavenger selection table. In addition to the metal itself, there are a number of parameters that affect the scavengers' effectiveness.

Please refer to the case study on Pd which illustrates some of the variables that may affect the scavenger or the Metal Scavenger brochure.

In some cases, it may be necessary to try a few scavengers.
For this purpose, we have developed metal scavenger kits.

If you have any questions, please contact our technical support department: scavengers@silicycle.com
