Most of catalytic converters contains tiny amount of precious metals, such as platinum, palladium and rhodium. To determine how much precious metals it contains, it has to be taken out from original metal case, and inspected with spectrometer (XRF analyzer).
Purchase process of catalytic converters:
- Catalytic converter is taken out of its original case;
- Sample of catalytic converter is inspected with XRF analyzer;
- Customer gets paid per KG, based on the results of the analysis and current market prices.
The analysis for ceramic catalytic converters can be done very accurately, opposite to metallic catalytic converter. As a result, prices for ceramic catalytic converters tends to be higher. To minimize time of purchase, we advice to take catalytic converters out from original metal cases.
