The catalytic converter – the general information, check of a condition and replacement

In order to avoid violation of the guarantee certificates extending on components of systems of decrease in toxicity of fulfilled gases, make check and service of the catalytic converter in the conditions of a car-care center workshop.

General information

The catalytic converter is a component of systems of decrease in toxicity of the fulfilled gases, is included in structure of system of release and serves for decrease in issue in the atmosphere of toxic components. There are two types of catalytic converters. The ordinary oxidizing converter allows to lower the content in the fulfilled gases of hydrocarbons and carbon monooxide. The three-functional catalytic converter in addition allows to reduce issue of oxides of nitrogen (NOH). On all models considered in the real Management three-functional catalytic converters are used. At contact of the fulfilled gases to the converter there is the chemical reaction of the oxidation turning not burned down harmful connections in safe water and carbon dioxide.

The catalytic converter is a part of system of production of the fulfilled gases and outwardly looks as the additional exhaust silencer (address to an accompanying illustration).

Check

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. The diagnostic equipment for check of serviceability of a condition of the catalytic converter is expensive and the extremely difficult in operation. At emergence of suspicions on failure of the converter, drive away the car for check on car repair shop.
2. Each time when the car for any reason rises over the earth, examine the converter on existence of signs of mechanical damages, traces of leaks and corrosion development. Check a condition of welded seams and reliability of a tightening of flange bolts of fastening of the device to sections of system of production of the fulfilled gases. The defective catalytic converter is subject to replacement.
3. Watch reliability of fastening of the thermofilter and that between the converter and chassis/body elements the gap of sufficient size (constantly remained see. Head of Control and routine maintenance of the car).

Replacement

The description of procedure of replacement of the catalytic converter is provided in Head of the Power supply system and production of the fulfilled gases.
