As I have seen many post and discussions on Catalytic Converter. Request to all that its not only the mater of the sound of the car. Also feel that how the car is behavior, on fuel economy, and how much is friendly for Environment.
A catalytic converter is a simple device that uses basic redox reactions to reduce the pollutants a car makes. It converts around 98% of the harmful fumes produced by a car engine into less harmful gases. It is composed of a metal housing with a ceramic honeycomb-like interior with insulating layers. This honeycomb interior has thin wall channels that are coated with a washcoat of aluminum oxide. This coating is porous and increases the surface area, allowing more reactions to take place and containing precious metals such as platinum, rhodium, and palladium. No more than 4-9 grams of these precious metals are used in a single converter.
The converter uses simple oxidation and reduction reactions to convert the unwanted fumes. Recall that oxidation is the loss of electrons and that reduction is the gaining of electrons. The precious metals mentioned earlier promote the transfer of electrons and, in turn, the conversion of toxic fumes.
My question to those friends and expert, who made the simple Dholki with certain partitions to control the sound only. How its work??
Simply mechanic says Ohhh this is not essential part of the engine. Please don't remove it. Its very nicely cleaned, and giving you guarantee an other 40000 Km.
Also requested kindly check the EGR in the car, also need servicing along with Catalytic converter
