How To Sell Catalytic Converter
A catalytic converter is an emissions control device. Its main purpose is to convert toxic gases and
pollutants in exhaust gases. Catalytic converters work by catalyzing a redox reaction (oxidization +
reduction) on the pollutants to make them less toxic. They are also used in internal combustion
engines that are fuelled by petrol or diesel, and kerosene heaters and stoves.
But that is not what they are famous for.
Catalytic converters use a lot of valuable precious metals including platinum, palladium, rhodium
and gold. They are used to make the converter function effectively and induce the catalytic reactions
better. This is why even after they stop working or are not in pristine condition, they are sought after
for their valuable material content.
There are people who buy catalytic converters, called as catalytic converter buyers who believe in
recycling catalytic converters as scrap catalytic converters. It is better to decide on where to sell
catalytic converters after making a thorough consideration of scrap catalytic converter prices and
various buying options.
Here is how to prepare yourself before!
Knowing the information about the converter and whatever it is made of is important. This will help
in narrowing down on the raw materials used. A simple online research with the vehicle make and
model number and serial number will give an idea about what it is worth in scrap.
Scrap catalytic converter prices will vary greatly based on if they are aftermarket or original.
Naturally, original catalytic converters give a higher price for scrap value.
Try to carefully remove the catalytic converter without damaging it or the place where it is fixed. The
honeycomb inside the converter and the exhaust pipes surrounding it need to be preserved without
