Catalytic Converters

Catalytic Converters

The catalytic converter is the most important part of a car's emission control system. It uses a combination of heat and precious metals to promote a chemical reaction to convert harmful pollutants into less harmful emissions before they leave the exhaust system.
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 in less harmful gases and passed out through the exhaust system.
Although they are relatively simple components, faulty

can lead to expensive repair bills, so it is vital that you get yours checked whenever possible.
In addition to reducing your car's environmental impact, your catalytic converter also improves your car's performance by working with the Lambda sensor to determine just how much oxygen your car uses.
