It should be no big surprise to you that air pollution is a huge problem, especially in the United States. There are millions of drivers on the roads and for every driver there is a vehicle that lets out exhaust emissions. This augments urban and residential area pollution, but cities and the federal government have acted on this problem by creating certain standards or clean-air laws limiting the amount of toxic emissions that are able to be produced by vehicles. The development of catalytic converters has helped this cause by reducing the amount harmful pollutants your vehicle can emit.Catalytic Converters Online is your home source for a wide range of catalytic converters. We have Direct Fit Catalytic Converters to match your vehicle and Universal Catalytic Converters that apply to numerous applications.
So how do catalytic converters work exactly? Without getting too complicated, we will discuss this here. Contemporary vehicles have engines that are designed to keep the air-to-fuel ratio extremely close to one another. The perfect ratio is called the stoichiometric point. Car emissions include nitrogen gas, carbon dioxide and water vapor. These exhaust emissions within themselves are fairly harmless, although CO2 (Carbon dioxide) has been blamed for increasing the earth’s temperature leading to global warming. More harmful emissions such as carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides are all reduced due to catalytic converters. Most vehicles come with three-way catalytic converters. This catalytic converter breaks down nitrogen oxides to nitrogen and oxygen. Carbon monoxide is converted to carbon dioxide and non-burnt hydrocarbons are converted to CO2 and water (H20). All this leads to less harmful emissions from your vehicle. Eugene Houdry is credited with developing catalytic converters. He lived in the United States in 1950. Based on smog studies involving the city of Los Angeles, it was time for a new invention help out with emissions. Early catalytic converters were ahead of their time, but the first production catalytic converter did not come out until 1973. One-way catalytic converters are no longer used, and two-way catalytic converters have limited use, mostly with diesel engines.
