As your engine burns fuel, it produces many different types of different gases that have an immediate effect and it is very bad for our environment. Noxious gases are hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides. By having a catalytic converter in our emission systems we have taken the necessary precautions from polluting our environment.
The catalytic converter is installed in the exhaust lines, between the exhaust manifold and the muffler and makes use of chemicals that act as a catalyst. A catalyst is a chemical that causes a reaction between other chemicals without having any effect it self. The whole purpose of the catalytic converter is to convert the pollutants from harmful gases to environmental friendly through the tail pipe at the rear of your vehicle.
With all the harmful gases that enter into the catalytic converter that is made of stainless steel and looks like a container. The actual inside of the converter is coated with chemicals called aluminum oxide platinum and palladium, in some case you will also find the chemical called rhodium. These chemicals inside the converter will cause the carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons to change into water vapor and carbon dioxide to reduce nitrogen oxides.
Keep in mind that you can not use leaded gas with an engine that was designed to have a catalytic converter, because of the lead that coats the chemicals in the converter, since the chemicals in the lining can not come in contact with the pollutants. As car manufacturers got wiser and started using tougher parts and coating them with special metal. As we all know the lead was an excellent source of reducing wear on some of the engine parts.
|Used Catalytic Converter|
as you can see the black which is carbon build up from
lack of proper maintenance changing your spark plugs!
|New catalytic Converter as you can see the|
wire screen is clean allowing the flow of the Noxious
gas to be converted to harmless gases!
