You want to get rid of a catalytic converter or DPF? Welcome! Our company is engaged in the purchase and recycling of metal and ceramic catalytic converters and DPF filters of brands such as Volvo, Volkswagen, Opel, Honda, Mercedes, Peugeot and many more! We purchase both in bulk and in retail and our customers are offered with some of the most favorable prices on the market.

The final value of catalytic converters and filters depend on several different factors. First, we check the device for the content of noble metals: platinum, rhodium and palladium – of course the higher the content of these elements, the better. Secondly, the price is determined on the base of the current exchange rate and current prices of particular elements on the stock market of precious metals.

Highest prices and professionalism

Our company has been operating since 2008. The company employs qualified professionals who have at their disposal a modern laboratory equipped with the latest generation of devices. Catalyst Recycling also has all the required permits and approvals necessary for the operation of such enterprise.

The equipment in our headquarters in addition to the modern laboratory also includes up-to-date machinery. We have spectrometers and ball mills necessary to grind ceramics. All work is carried out by our company with care for the natural environment and according to the rules for Safety and Health at Work.

In Catalyst Recycling we care not only about the environment and employees, but also about our customers! We encourage our contractors to visit the company’s headquarters, where we carry out thorough verification and analysis of offered equipment – catalytic converters and filters – so that we are able to offer the best market price to our customers.

Catalytic converters purchase prices

We purchase both in bulk and in retail all kinds of catalysts – metal and ceramic ones, as well as DPF and FAP particulate filters.To our customers we are able to offer the highest purchase price on both the domestic and foreign markets. The analysis of the delivered goods we carry out on-site, using specialized equipment. The company’s headquarters have a fully equipped modern laboratory, as well as ball mills for grinding ceramic parts of catalytic converters. The valuation is conducted basing on the current stock prices of precious metals (platinum, palladium, rhodium) and the current exchange rate of EURO/USD.

Catalytic converter

Automotive catalytic converter (usually called “catalytic converter”) is a part of the car exhaust system, whose main task is to reduce the amount of harmful combustion gases emitted to the environment. Currently, due to very stringent standards for pollutants, catalytic converters are installed in all types of motor vehicles – from forklifts to trucks.

By “catalytic converter” we understand the part that is installed in our car. The device, as the name suggests, catalyzes a chemical reaction, but does not take part in it. For operation of the catalytic converter are responsible noble metals (platinum, palladium and rhodium), with which is covered the interior of the catalytic converter. These metals neutralize substances contained in combustion gases, thereby reducing their toxicity.

Ceramic catalytic converters

Catalytic converters are divided into three types: ceramic, metal and particulate filters (FAP/DPF). Ceramic catalytic converters are cheaper and are therefore more popular, they are however not as durable as metal catalytic converters. Ceramic block used in such converters heats up slowly, which makes it less efficient when comes to purification of combustion gases. In addition this type of catalytic converter is also less resistant to temperature.

On the other hand the use of ceramic catalytic converters results in quieter operation of the engine. Moreover in some models of modern cars (the ones, where two lambda probes are used), the use of a metal catalyst can cause incorrect work of the probe placed behind the catalytic converter.

Metal catalytic converters

Metal catalytic converters have the advantage over the ceramic: they heat up faster to a temperature required for combustion of toxic substances from the car exhaust. Metal used in this kind of catalysts – alloy of heat-resistant chrome-nickel steel and aluminum – is also more durable than ceramic inserts.
