Flux Dispenser

A crucial part of a safe and efficient laboratory.

In 2007, Westref changed the landscape of the fire assay industry in the creation of 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 equipment. Safety issues are a thing of the past with this original piece of equipment which requires minimum manual handling which 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 exclusive to Australia and can be delivered on time 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 innovation worldwide.
