What is a ceramic monolith?
A catalyst is not just what we see outside, i.e. a metal, often dirty and rusty can. Many of her looks could be misleading when she tried to estimate values. The catalyst is primarily its filling, which is a functional part of the device.
Monolith it is a block of material that with its structure reminds everyone of the honeycomb. They fill it valuable precious metals – platinum, palladium and rhodium. It is they that perform the proper catalytic function and purify the exhaust gases from poisonous nitrogen oxides, carbon oxides and hydrocarbons.
Among the monoliths available on the market, we distinguish those in which one of the metals and the mixed version dominates.
Purchase of a monolith – how it goes?
DS Auto except purchase of catalysts metal and ceramic, it also purchases the monolith itself. We buy both in whole, in pieces and in powder. It is possible thanks to our back office.
The lot we receive from you is marked first, then we weigh and grind with a ball mill. Once we have obtained a fine powder with a granulation of less than 0.1 mm, we can take care of the material.
Thanks to the fact that we have our own, specialized analytical laboratory, we are able to examine your monolith on your own and without unnecessary intermediaries. It is the cheapest solution possible, and you have the guarantee that you get the highest possible amount for the imported goods.
Professional determination of the content of noble elements in the sample is possible thanks to the knowledge and experience of our laboratory technicians and the use of modern XRF technology.
We have the latest on the market ICP MS spectrometers and hand spectrometers of the popular brand Olympus.
Wthanks to the use of chemical analysis, which is the only method that guarantees reliable valuation, we have such an extensive method catalog of catalysts.
It’s almost in our database 7 800 models of used catalysts with the division into the brands in which they find their application, dimensions, weight and what is the most important – the exact value updated on a current basis according to the rates of precious metals and exchange rates. Without examining each of them with the use of chemical devices, it would not be possible to prepare such a comprehensive and at the same time reliable price list.
Once we know the precious metal content in the monolith, we make it free quote. For this purpose, we take into account the current rates. Remember that the amount you receive on the day of delivery is the same as on the day of the quote.
You always receive from us a full analysis report. In addition, the whole process is open and transparent, and you have the opportunity to look at the analysis and see it live as we work.
After preparing the report, each customer receives from us a sample of the material delivered in a measuring cup.
