Why does No Limit Catalytics BUY Catalytic Converters?
Each catalytic converter has small amounts of these precious metals inside of them. Amounts so small, they are measured in ppm’s (parts per million). Though the amounts inside are extremely small the values of the metals are high, giving each catalytic converter real dollar values.
Catalytic = a substance causing a chemical reaction.
Converter = an item that changes ones form.
Catalytic converters were introduced by auto manufactures in 1975.
Their purpose is to reduce the amount of pollutants from a combustible engine.
Gasoline and Diesel engines produce three main pollutants:
- VOCs Volatile Organic Compounds or Hydrocarbons
- CO Carbon Monoxide
- NOx Nitrogen Oxide
Diesel engines have recently been placed under more stringent emission standards, therefore, more functional catalytic converters are required for their exhaust systems.
Diesel engines mostly emit
- NOx Nitrogen Oxide.
Why do we need Catalytic Converters?
Catalytic converters are necessary in order to combat/reduce smog and acid rain.
What makes Catalytic Converters valuable and important?
Catalytic converters are comprised of three main precious metals important to the pollution converting process:
The internal parts/substrates of the catalytic converter are coated/plated with these metals in order to maximize the exposure area for the exhaust flow.
These metals react to the temperatures of the exhaust and to the gaseous compound elements within the exhaust, thus converting the exhaust from poisonous to less poisonous. According to some research, catalytic converters reduce poisonous gases by 40%.
