Analysis of Rh, Pd and Pt in Used Automobile Catalytic Converters

The profitable recycling of used automobile catalytic converters requires an accurate determination of the precious metals content. Fortunately, this is a straightforward and routine task for a modern X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) spectrometers. Compared to other techniques, XRF sample preparation is fast and easy. The analysis itself can be carried out with minimal fuss and training.

This report demonstrates SPECTRO xSORT’s capabilities to provide a fast, accurate and trouble-free analysis of precious metals content in used catalytic converters.
