Flux Dispenser

A Westref Flux Dispenser System is a crucial part of a safe and efficient laboratory.

In 2007, Westref changed the landscape of the fire assay industry by creating the first successful automatic flux dispensing (dosing) system. This global innovation, which has led to many copycat knockoffs, meets the increasing demands of the mining industry for safer, smarter and faster testing equipment in high-volume laboratories. By using a Westref Flux Dispenser System, laboratories can expect:

  • Improved blood-lead levels
  • Reduced lead contact
  • Savings on labour
  • No spills
  • Less dust
  • Accurate dosing
  • Suitability for any pot configuration

Each flux dispensing machine can be customised to suit your needs and pot layout. Safety issues are a thing of the past with this original piece of equipment which requires minimum manual handling and reduces staff exposure to lead materials – enabling considerable savings on labour costs. Providing the ultimate in flexibility, the Flux Dispenser works with any pot size and configuration. A crucial part of a safe and efficient laboratory, Westref’s Flux Dispenser system is exclusively made in Australia and can be delivered to any part of the world. As a small family owned business with over 20 years of expertise, we take the time to listen and provide solutions. See why Westref has established itself as a leader in fire assay innovation worldwide.
