Catalytic Converter

What is catalytic converter?

A catalytic converter is a unit that fits into the front part of exhaust system of a vehicle, close to the engine. It’s usually made of metal and ceramic honeycombs or blocks.

What does a catalytic converter do?

A catalytic converter reduces the emission of gaseous pollutants, such as carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and hydrocarbons (HCs).

Catalytic converters use platinum, palladium, or rhodium as catalysts to break down the hydrocarbons in gasoline, which produce carbon monoxide (CO) and unburned fuel – aka toxic waste products! The catalytic process also burns off other chemicals like nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulphur dioxide (SOx), and particulate matter.

Types of Catalytic Converter

Catalytic converters are available in different types like oxidation catalyst, dual bed catalyst, and three-way.

Oxidation Catalyst - The first type of catalytic converter is an oxidation catalyst. This type of catalyst decreases harmful pollutants like CO (carbon monoxide) & HC (fuel hydrocarbon) within the exhaust. At the same time, it frequently utilizes an inferior air injection. But, this type of catalyst simply decreases a part of the pollutants.

Dual-bed Catalyst - This is the second type of catalyst which provides more perfection. This type of catalyst mainly works within two stages where the first stage assists in decreasing the emission quantity from NiO2. The second phase responds through the hydrocarbons which are formed through unburned carbon mono oxide & fuel. In two stages, the manufacturers will provide the secondary air injection.

Three-Way Catalytic Converter - This is the last type of converter which aids in changing the dangerous gases into harmless generated from the car engine. The car engine will exhaust different gases which include hazardous substances that cause harm to the atmosphere like NiO2, CO, CO2, etc. These converts mainly change them into less harmful CO2, nitrogen & water.

Catalytic converter scrap price

When it comes to scrapping a car, the catalytic converter is often one of the most valuable parts.

Since they are made from rare metals like platinum, rhodium, and palladium, they can fetch a high price for the Catalytic converter at the scrapyard.

But not all catalytic converters are created equal. Some cars have converters that are worth more than others.

In general, luxury cars and sports cars tend to have the most expensive converters. This is because they often have larger engines that require more powerful catalytic converters. As a result, scrap yards will pay more for these parts.
