Silver cementation from nitrate containing solution using Taguchi methods was studied to understand and optimize silver cementation yield by considering design and rotation rate of the impeller, temperature and pH of the solution. In the experiments, 2, 4 and 6 blade impellers and 100 200 and 300 RPM rotation rates, were used. The solution pH values were selected as 0.5, 1.5, and 2.5, and the experiments were conducted at 30, 45 and 60 degrees C.
