Analysis of car catalysts for platinum group metals with ElvaX ProSpector

Catalytic converters in cars are used for reduction of hazardous emissions, such as carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (HxCy) and nitrogen oxides (NOx). These harmful substances are converted into carbon dioxide (CO2), water and nitrogen by some chemical reactions, which are accelerated by three platinum group metals (PGM): platinum, palladium and rhodium.

Due to great amount of car catalyst types, an amount of PGMs varies significantly. Then rapid and accurate testing method is required. ElvaX ProSpector provides precise and fast catalytic converters analysis for simple sorting and price evaluation. Usually, a concentration of PGMs in car catalyst is much higher, than in ores.
