If you’re looking to sell a catalytic converter, if you’re an auto wrecker, exhaust and muffler repair shop, vehicle repair shop or just have an old car or two parked in your yard, you could be cashing in.
When your car burns fuel, there are harmful chemicals that come are released in the combustion process. A catalytic converter or a ‘cat’ as it’s often referred to, is a device that reduces pollutants in exhaust gas. Its located in the exhaust pipe between the manifold and the rear muffler. If your car is less than 25 years old, chances are pretty high it will have a catalytic converter. Catalytic converters are most commonly found on cars but they’re also used on electrical generators, forklifts, on mining equipment and trucks.
At the end of their life, catalytic converters can be recycled and what’s more, they’re really valuable. So, instead of disposing of old and broken catalytic converters, visit the Endless Metals drive-thru in Onehunga.
It is not possible to assess the value of a catalytic converter by looking at it from the outside. It is what’s inside that counts and what’s inside is a kind of ceramic honeycomb, called a ‘biscuit’, which contains the metal we’re going to recycle. We categorize this biscuit as a half or a full refering to the size of the biscuit inside the cat. Endless will pay for a full catalytic converter if that biscuit is more than 25 cm long and for a half catalytic converter if it’s less.
It is also important that the biscuit isn’t broken, but it doesn’t matter if the catalytic converter itself is rusted or dented or the year, make and model of the car it comes from. The value of the converter for recycling doesn’t change with the value of the car. For more information on catalytic converter scrap price, visit www.endless.co.nz/pricing!
