HOW IT WORKS: CATALYTIC CONVERTERS?
The catalytic converter
was first introduced in 1975 in order to help meet clean-air laws. The basic
function of the catalytic converter is to take pollutants within the exhaust
system and convert them into less harmful gas emissions before they leave the
engine.The converter most often
looks like a honeycomb with many passageways through it. It can also be many
small ceramic beads with a catalyst coating. Chemical reactions take place to
reduce the emissions.
There are three main
emissions produced by a car engine. They include nitrogen gas, carbon dioxide
and water vapour.
While it is thought carbon
dioxide does play a factor in global warming, there are three other emissions
produced by car engines. Although they are in smaller amounts, they are much
more harmful. They include: carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless, poisonous
gas; hydrocarbons or volatile organic compounds, which produced smog because of
evaporated, unburned fuel; and nitrogen oxides, which produced smog and acid
rain in addition to being harmful to the human mucus membranes.
basically reduce pollution by causing a reaction inside. The emissions come
into contact with a metal catalyst - platinum, rhodium, palladium, or even gold
in new converters. Most vehicles have what is called a three-way catalytic
converter, as there are three emissions that it reduces.
Two different reactions
occur inside the catalytic converter.
The first is the reduction
catalyst. When nitrogen oxide molecules come into contact with platinum and
rhodium, the metal takes the nitrogen atom out of the molecule, leaving the
oxygen alone. The nitrogen then bonds together so that instead of having
nitrogen oxides, there is oxygen and nitrogen.
Then comes the oxidation catalyst.
Hydrogens and carbon monoxides are burned over platinum and palladium.
Remaining oxygen then bonds to create carbon dioxide instead of hydrocarbons.
The third stage is the
control system, which references the exhaust stream in order to control the
fuel injection system. Near the top of the catalytic converter is an oxygen
sensor. It determines how much oxygen is in the exhaust, and relays the
information to the engine computer, which then either increases or decreases
the amount of oxygen according to what is needed. This ensures that that there
is enough oxygen for the oxidation catalyst.
A FAILING CATALYTIC CONVERTER
Catalytic converters fail if they
become clogged or poisoned. A mechanic can determine if it is plugged in a couple
of different ways. One way is to remove it and check if there is a change in
engine performance. The second way is to temporarily remove the oxygen sensor
and check if there is a change in engine performance.
You can usually tell a clogged
converter by a vehicle that won't accelerate properly or if there is a drop in
A catalytic converter can also fail
if there are bad exhaust valves on the engine or plugs that cause fuel to
overheat the converter.
