Techemet has over 26 years of purchasing experience, allow us to show you how to minimize your purchasing risks. TOLLING The alternative to selling converters on an as is basis is to have your material toll refined. This involves setting up a toll refining agreement with Techemet for either whole converters or the loose catalyst that has been removed from the converter shell. The essence of a toll refining agreement is that your material is sampled and assayed to determine the amount of Pt, Pd & Rh present and then once the assay is finalized between Techemet and the supplier, the metal can be sold by the supplier at a date and time of their choosing. While toll agreements are standard across the board, certain terms and conditions can be tailored to meet the needs of the supplier. TRADING Techemet has an in house metal trading department. We are able to quote spot or forward prices as well as settle on the London fix. The supplier has the ability to hedge material in advance of delivery to minimize his risk with regards to market fluctuations. Our trading team buys and sells metal from a range of suppliers and customers and Techemet is able to enter into metal supply contracts for buying and selling of all precious metals. WHAT IS A CONVERTER There are millions of cars on the road in the United States, and each one is potentially a source of air pollution. Especially in large cities, the amount of pollution that all the cars produce together can create big problems. To solve those problems, cities, states and the federal government create clean-air laws, and many laws have been enacted that restrict the amount of pollution that cars can produce. To keep up with these laws, automakers have made many refinements to car engines and fuel systems. To help reduce the emissions further, they have developed an interesting device called a catalytic converter, which treats the exhaust before it leaves the car and removes a lot of the pollution. In this article, you will learn which pollutants are produced by an engine and why, and how a catalytic converter deals with each of these pollutants. Catalytic converters are amazingly simple devices, so it is incredible to see how big an impact they have.
