BMW 8 Series

Today we talk about catalytic converters (catalysts) as a whole and the BMW 8 Series one in particular. How do these mysterious devices work, and what exactly is their contribution to reducing pollution? Furthermore, we will look at the role of automotive catalytic converters in modern cars and their importance to our environmental future. Like any part, catalytic converters have a lifespan. Regular vehicle maintenance can help extend their life, but it's important to understand what to do with equipment that has already failed. A used catalytic converter still has a value hidden inside and throwing it away is a waste of potential.

Catalytic converter value

To better understand the value of a used catalytic converter, it is necessary to understand its structure and what is inside. A car catalyst fundamentally works by catalysis, accelerating chemical redox reactions in the exhaust gases. This device contains special catalyst materials that stimulate the oxidation of hydrocarbons and carbon oxides, as well as the reduction of nitrogen oxides. As a result of these processes, harmful components in the exhaust gases are converted into less hazardous nitrogen and water, reducing the negative impact on the environment. The catalyst elements are of the precious metals of the platinum group also known as PMG. These metals are Platinum, Palladium, and Rhodium present a specific value in catalytic recycle and precious metal exchange.

Catalytic converter price

As we mentioned earlier, the precious metals exchange has a direct influence on the cost of catalysts, unlike the direct manufacturer. In addition, large car companies do not have much influence here, as they use third-party production to increase the pace of their own. Therefore, neither engine power nor car brand has any significance in forming the catalytic price. All that matters is the amount of Platinum, Palladium, and Rhodium in the ceramic honeycomb of the catalyst. Find out your BMW 8 Series “cat’s” Manufacturer on the AutoCatalystMarket website.

Catalytic converter recycling

The 1st stage of recycling requires to scrap catalytic converter. We ground honeycombs into powder to perform XRF analysis to find out the percentage of PMG in a sample. That way we set catalytic converter price per kg and now can send this whole batch to a refinery. Refinery is the final stage of accurate price estimation as we extract precious metals in their purity for future use in many crafts as well as in new catalysts production. Doing all of that on your own is pretty much impossible and takes specific knowledge and time dedication. Therefore use AutoCatalystMarket to sell catalytic converter of your BMW 8 Series as this is a very convenient tool both for price estimation and buyer overview. You simply hand your worn “cat” to a company that will do the rest of the routine and eventually give you a fair price considering precious metal market exchange and production costs. Setting a used catalytic converter for sale for recycling is the right way of disposal, as you don’t waste the potential of the worn “cat” and benefit in saving on the future purchasing of a new catalyst.
