What is a Catalytic Converter?
A Catalytic Converter (or Cat) is an Exhaust Emissions Device located underneath a vehicle. It uses a combination of heat and precious metals to promote a chemical reaction, which breaks down harmful gases, making the emissions less detrimental to the environment.
How does the Catalytic Converter work?
The operating temperature of a cat is between 350 to 400 degrees Celsius. Once the cat has reached this temperature a chemical reaction occurs as the exhaust gases flow through the coated monolith. The harmful gases are oxidised and converted as shown in the diagram opposite.
Components of a Catalytic Converter
A honeycomb monolith coated with precious metals (usually Platinum, Palladium and Rhodium) is encased in a steel can. Between the monolith and the can is matting. Upon running a cat in, this matting expands when subjected to heat. Once expanded, the matting holds the monolith in place.
