Silver Refining & Recovery of Silver Scrap

Arch Enterprises provides silver refining services for all types of scrap silver material. Jewelry, flatware, and silver serving sets are some of the common types of silver scrap we refine, but we also extract silver from x-ray films, photographic film/paper, and many other items. We can refine efficiently in very large amounts or small batches at our refining facility in central Missouri and have the capability to process silver scrap such as films and paper by the truckload. We return silver refining payments to our customers based on the actual silver recovered from the material, not on estimates.

We are not a middleman or consolidator.  All silver refining and recycling is done in our facilities so we can control all aspects of the process and ensure you receive the highest return for your material. Our experienced team utilizes the most appropriate extraction techniques while our wide range of equipment (including small and large furnaces; thermal oxidizers and electrolytic purification cells) allow us to recover the most silver possible.

All silver refining is done on a custom basis. We do not consolidate your silver scrap with material from other customers. We perform the silver recovery procedures and pay you based on type and quantity of your silver scrap material.

We are in compliance with all local, state, and federal environmental regulations, and all of the material from our silver refining operations is recycled back into industry.

Examples of Items Accepted for Silver Refining

We also design and build silver recovery equipment and integrate complete silver recovery systems for clients. 


Arch Enterprises is NOT an antique dealer, researcher or retail seller of silver. We only take into account the weight of your items and the amount of silver available for recovery. We CANNOT give estimates based on the make, manufacture date, rarity, or collectability of items.
