Automotive catalytic converter serves to reduce the level of harmful substances in exhaust gases. Basically we are talking about carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides, which in the course of the catalytic reaction are converted into harmless substances. In the vehicles with gasoline engines this work is done by a three-way catalyst that uses rhodium, platinum, and palladium as catalysts. The chemical reaction that takes place reduces harmful substances in exhaust gases. In the vehicles with diesel engines are used oxidation catalytic converters to transform hydrocarbons.
It is reasonable to install catalytic converters in older vehicles. Due to this it is possible to achieve higher environmental standards, which will provide significant tax benefits. A cheap alternative is a mini-catalyst. Functionality of the catalytic converter is determined by measuring the exhaust emissions. Rattling sounds also indicate a faulty catalytic converter. It is necessary to replace it. Faultiness must be repaired before passing the next test of the exhaust emissions level. For environmental reasons do not long delay the installation of a new catalyst.
In most vehicles the catalytic converter is installed between the oxygen sensor (lambda sensor) and the exhaust manifold. To replace the old catalyst it is necessary to disassemble the exhaust system. Usually this is done with the help of a diamond wheel. To install a new catalytic converter welding is required. In addition, the flange can be used. In our internet catalogue you will find many other spare parts, like fenders, brake shoes, cylinder locks, taillights. If you need a new oxygen sensor or any other car parts for exhaust system, you will find them here.
