When you will go to market for vacuum pump then you will see oil vacuum pumps. These pumps sucking capacity is very high but these vacuum pumps are not good for our gold recovery process because after some time this will be Jam. If you want to save your money then use this type of compressor. You can also use a second-hand compressor find this from any scrap yard. You can use this as a vacuum pump. It is reliable for filtration. If this leave to do work, you can easily repair it.

Glass beakers.

If you want to boil something in a beaker then use only original Pyrex beaker. And if you use only for holding solutions then you can use any cheaper company for this because Pyrex is an expensive company and you don’t need to waste your money for only solution holding on Pyrex.

Plastic Buckets:

A cheaper way for gold recovery is plastic pots and buckets. You should confirm that your plastic pot should not be made with PET. Because PET is not good for acids. PET dissolves in many acids.
