Our Catalytic Converters
- Ribbed body that minimizes expansion and distortion when the catalytic converter heats up. The Ribs form a channel that protects the cushioning mat from direct exposure to exhaust gasses, and they hold the ceramic catalyst in proper alignment.
- 1/2" lap-joint where the necks meet the body. The neck does not extend into the converter body where it could hamper exhaust flow.
- Monolithic honeycomb catalyst. The ceramic is designed for maximum flow and surface area. Metallic substrates are also available for specific applications.
- Heavy gauge stainless steel, tip to tip.
- Seam welded close to the converter body for a strong, tight bond.
- Aluminized or stainless OEM-style ribbed heat shield that creates a rigid wall of protection against heat and adds to the structural stability of the catalytic converter.
Catalytic Converter Basics
The purpose of a catalytic converter is to convert toxic chemicals in the exhaust of an internal combustion engine into less toxic substances. Inside a catalytic converter, a catalyst stimulates a chemical reaction in which noxious byproducts of combustion are converted to less toxic substances by way of catalyzed chemical reactions. The specific reactions vary with the type of catalyst installed.
There are two basic types of automotive catalytic converters:
Two-Way Oxidation Converter
Used from 1975 to 1980 on gasoline-powered vehicles. Combined carbon monoxide (CO) and unburned hydrocarbons (HC) to produce carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H20). Two-Way converters are now considered obsolete.
Three-Way Reduction / Oxidation
Also reduces oxides of nitrogen (NOx). Today's most common type of catalytic converter.
