Call for pricing, you’ll be glad you did. Ask for Bruce at 1-800-786-5051, ext 135. He will fill you in on how easy and profitable it is. However we are not interested in one’s and two’s, but catalytic converter collections.
That depends on how large the precious group metal (PGM) load. Bruce can help you determine a method for learning the value based on type and count.
We have a proprietary measuring technique that consistently allows Recycalytics to pay top dollar for spent PGM catalyst material.
I understand Recycalytics recycles diesel particulate filters (DPFs) from trucks and buses? Are you paying top dollar for DPFs as well?
Absolutely! Far too often thrown away as trash, the PGM values in DPFs allow us to return top dollar to fleet garages and fleet maintenance yards for spent DPFs. City managers of large municipal garages may find a surprisingly nice revenue stream here to help balance budgets as well. Bruce at 1-800-786-5051, ext 135 can help.
In chemistry, a catalyst is a substance that causes or accelerates a chemical reaction without itself being affected and can consist of a ceramic- or metallic-supported substrates coated with a precious group metal (PGM) catalyst, usually platinum, rhodium and/or palladium. The idea is to create a structure that exposes the maximum surface area of catalyst to an exhaust stream while minimizing the amount of catalyst content (PGMs) required to clean the air.
This refers to the three regulated emissions it helps to reduce. The reduction catalyst is the first stage of the catalytic converter. It uses platinum and rhodium to help reduce the NOx emissions.The oxidation catalyst is the second stage of the catalytic converter. It reduces the unburned hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide by burning (oxidizing) them over a platinum and palladium catalyst. The third stage of conversion is a control system that monitors the exhaust stream, and uses this information to control the fuel injection system.
Yes, diesel particulate filters are valuable commodities once through their lifecycle and have PGM content. We also recycle spent DPFs from heavy off-road equipment, as well as diesel emission control devices from trains and boats too.
Our minimums vary according to location of the catalytic converter collection. Please call 1-800 786-5051 to discuss logistics with Bruce at extension 135.
Not at all. Depends on their precious group metal (PGM) washcoat applied at the manufacturer. Many emissions control devices contain varying degrees of precious metals including rhodium, palladium and platinum. Not only do PGM loads very according to application but the monolith can be ceramic or metallic, too. The PGM recovery from ceramic monolith and metal monolith differ as well.
When recycling precious metals from catalytic converters, Recycalytics contributes to the above ground collection of precious metals available to industry. As a result, this lessens the demand on our natural resources, reducing the need to mine for non-renewable precious metals below ground.
