At Auto Exhausts we specialise in the installation and maintenance of catalytic converters. The purpose of catalytic converters is to reduce the amount of air pollution caused by toxic gases which are produced from the vehicle’s engine (e.g. carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides).
Catalytic converters contain ceramic filters coated with precious metals such as platinum and palladium. As the exhaust gases flow through these ceramic filters, a chemical reaction takes place which breaks down these harmful gases into less toxic substances.
