Exhaust gases produced by petrol, diesel and gas, contain unburned hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and aldehydes. The catalytic exhaust uses the chemical conversion performed by catalysis and transforms unburned hydrocarbons (HC), carbon monoxide (CO) and the aldehydes into non-toxic carbon dioxide and water. The catalyst is entirely supported on a metallic honeycomb to which optimized amounts of noble metals are employed (platinum, palladium and rhodium). The Advantages:
- Reduced back pressure since the metallic honeycomb walls are thinner (0.04mm) as compared to the ceramic version (0.15mm).
- Smaller overall size since the reduced catalytic mass
- In contrast to ceramic honeycomb, metal honeycomb is far more robust and does not suffer from irreparable fractures or breaks created by impact
- Metallic honeycomb reaches higher temperatures more quickly than ceramic due to the higher conductivity of metal. This provides high efficiency even in the event of intermittent use of the unit
