Over the years, automakers have made a number of improvements to car engines and fuel systems in order to comply with such regulations. That is where Catalytic Convertors come in. The catalytic converter ‘s task is to turn harmful contaminants into less harmful emissions before they exhaust the engine. A Catalytic Convertor generally converts the following harmful compounds into harmless compounds:
- Carbon monoxide
- Nitrogen Oxides
With Edmonton having a huge percentage of automobiles, the air is filled with hazardous gases. Experts at Premier Auto Exhaust, who are certified in dealing with these problems and using Catalytic Converters can lead you out of this situation.
Carbon monoxide is a poison to any animal which breathes air. Nitrogen oxides cause smog and acid rain, and hydrocarbons also create smog. The catalyst (in the form of platinum and palladium) is coated in a catalytic converter on a ceramic honeycomb or ceramic beads which are housed in a muffler-like package attached to the exhaust pipe. The catalyst assists in converting carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide. The hydrocarbons are converted into carbon dioxide and water. The nitrogen oxides are also converted back into nitrogen and oxygen.
