In 1986, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued new guidelines for the construction, efficiency and installation of aftermarket catalytic converters. All CleanAir converters have been designed, tested and manufactured to meet this policy.
Eliminating Myths About Aftermarket Converters " I installed a new aftermarket converter, and a few days later the customer returned complaining of sluggish performance. When I looked at the converter, the "brick" was melted and plugged. What's wrong with the aftermarket converter?"
Thousands of technicians have faced the challenge of bringing a particularly stubborn application into compliance for NOx emissions. High NOx readings are a clear sign of performance issues somewhere in the system. The question is, where?
A catalytic converter is a device which chemically converts harmful exhaust gases, produced by the internal combustion engine, into harmless carbon dioxide and water vapor. The converter was developed to meet stringent emission reduction levels as set forth by the Federal ERA and California Air Resources Board. Since the 1975 model year, vehicle manufacturers have used catalytic converters and other emission control devices, to meet those emission reduction levels.
Passenger vehicle manufacturers have made tremendous progress in reducing emissions since the introduction of the first automotive catalytic converter in the mid-1970s. Early converters, called "two-way" converters, burned a percentage of the unused hydrocarbons (HC) and carbon monoxide (CO) produced by the relatively inefficient, low compression engines of the day.
