Photochemical waste is generated by veterinary offices during x-ray photo processing and requires special care due to its high silver content. To quickly and easily treat fixers and developers for either manual or automatic processors, we recommend an on-site filtration system like Chemgon. For the disposal of both used lead aprons and lead foil (a byproduct of analog x-ray machines), Pureway recommends one of our lead foil disposal systems.
Our filtration system processes up to 15 gallons of fixer, eliminating the need for a contracted pickup service. This one-of-a-kind system reduces costs by preparing fixer for disposal down the drain.
Lead foil, a by-product of analog x-ray machines, may simply be collected and returned for recycling in one of our lead foil disposal buckets
