What is a catalytic converter?
A catalytic converter is a device that is used to convert exhaust gases from an internal combustion engine into less harmful substances. The converter is usually located in the exhaust system, between the engine and the muffler. It works by catalyzing a chemical reaction in which harmful pollutants are converted into less harmful gases such as carbon dioxide and water vapor.
Scrap Catalytic Converter Prices
The current scrap catalytic converter prices can vary depending on the type of metal used in the catalyst and its price per ounce. Rhodium is the most expensive, followed by palladium and then platinum. The price of rhodium has been increasing in recent years due to increased demand from the automotive industry. Palladium and platinum prices have also been rising but not at the same rate as rhodium.
As of 2022, a small aftermarket catalytic converter might only be worth $100, while a large and rare converter could be worth over $1,200.
What scrap metals are in a catalytic converter?
The three main scrap metals found in a catalytic converter are platinum, palladium, and rhodium.
Catalytic converters lifespan
The lifespan of a catalytic converter is typically between 80,000 and 120,000 miles. However, some converters can last much longer – up to 200,000 miles.
How to scrap catalytic converter
There are a few basic and simple steps to keep in mind when you are preparing your catalytic converters for scrap:
- Know the make and model of your converter. This information can usually be found on a sticker on the converter itself.
- Separate the catalytic converter from the exhaust pipes. This can usually be done with a wrench or socket set
- Ensure that the honeycomb inside the converter is intact. This is the part of the converter that contains the precious metals. If the honeycomb is damaged, it will affect the value of the converter.
