Frequently Asked Questions About DPF Recycling Are Displayed Below
1. How much is a used DPF System worth?
Many companies and individuals ask if DPF Recycling profitable. It can be, depending on the type of DPF being recycled. How much a scrap DPF system is worth depends on one primary factor – How much platinum and palladium we have been able to recover from other identical units. Each DPF or DOC is manufactured with a certain amount of precious metals within the wash coat of the ceramic substrate that is contained within the metal canister. We have spent more than a decade testing DPF systems for recyclable value and have found that prices vary greatly between part numbers. Even if DPF or DOC units are from the same make, parts can vary in value by hundreds of dollars.
2. Can I get more for my used DPF system by selling it as scrap or a used part?
This is a complex question about DPF Recycling. Although in most cases a used DPF system will be worth more as a used part than for scrap, the EPA has certain restrictions on selling used systems. In most cases, unless a catalytic converter or DPF filter has been tested and certified by an EPA approved company, it is illegal to sell except for the purpose of salvage.

13. Who buys used DPF systems?
We have been purchasing and recycling DPF System since early 2007, however we are not the only company who will purchase your scrap DPF system from you. Many local salvage yards will also purchase used DPF systems for the scrap steel value. The problem is that the majority of these local companies will not have any idea how much each unit is actually worth. In this case, usually a price per pound or a lower flat rate price per unit is established. When you recycle your DPF systems with our company, a fair market price is paid for every unit that we purchase.
