Cleaning Catalytic Converter

Cleaning Catalytic Converter


Several parts make up your vehicle emission control system, and the catalytic converter is one of them. Its role is to make harmful emissions produced by the engine safe, by converting them into harmless gasses and water. And considering its importance, it must be fixed or replaced immediately it malfunctions.

The catalytic converter runs on different organic chemistry principles. There is a ceramic monolith core, taking the structure of a honeycomb. A film of precious metal is laid over the core – the metal film functions by capturing and decomposing the exhaust gases in a high-temperature reaction. In addition to being enclosed in a sealed casing, the ceramic monolith also enjoys the protection of an insulated coating.

When the catalytic converter is not working optimally, your engine consumes excess fuel, offers lesser engine power, and functions less effectively.

How to avoid replacing the catalytic converter. Carbon Cleaning is the solution

Cleaning your catalytic converter

There are three options for cleaning your catalytic converter. While all these methods are effective, the costs involved are usually different markedly.

One way of solving this problem is to change the part: the expensive option. How much you pay for the replacement part will depend on the brand and type of your engine: either way, budget between £300 and £600.

This option takes a bit more time and requires good mechanical skills. The injector is removed and replaced with a straight pipe. Although this replaces the converter, it doesn’t treat the exhaust gas like the catalytic converter and exhaust gases coming out of the pipe are usually harmful. What the straight pipe does is to enhance performance, unlike the catalytic converter that reduces exhaust pollution, even though it leads to a slight loss of recovery and speed. The option of a straight pipe is a cheaper, but a harmful alternative to outright replacement of the catalytic converter.

This is the less expensive option, and it requires little service time, considering that you do not have to disassemble the engine. Hydrogen treatment through the Carbon Cleaning Station can be regarded as a preventative treatment. It is due after every 10,000 miles, and it can also resolve other issues affecting the engine.
