    Air brake core buyer?

    Does anyone know of a company that buys air brake valve cores? I have a Wabco ABS module #4005001030 at the moment but we always have air valves at work.

    If there isn't a market for cores, would the electronics be worth anything? I know nothing about ewaste.



    Thanks

    I do not know of a buyer and my strategy is to separate the ferrous from nonferrous and sell in that manner. All electronics are sold to a local ewaste scrapper in bulk, maybe every two years.
    Give back more to this world than we take.

    Only core exchanges for those valves that I know of. Google local trailer shops and give them a call, you might get lucky.

    Other than that, a quick separation of components like Patriot76 mentioned is the best bet. Those ECMs and circuit boards are pretty low grade, so those usually go into the "accumulate and dump" pile.

    Having said that - failed core, or worn core? I can see if some of the truckers in the shop might be needing some spare parts.

    A lot of the bigger truck parts are going no-core. I know a lot of turbos are now, air valves, even some of the brake shoes.
