Ceramic catalyst


What does the catalytic converter do?

A ceramic vehicle catalytic converter is an important part of the exhaust gas purification system and contributes to reducing the emissions of harmful substances.
The catalyst has a honeycomb-like core, usually made of ceramic material, in which the precious precious metals platinum, palladium and rhodium are found.
These precious metals act as catalysts for chemical reactions that convert harmful exhaust emissions into less hazardous substances.

The core of a ceramic catalytic converter is designed with small channels through which the exhaust gases pass. The channels vary in diameter depending on the type of catalyst and the vehicle it is used in. The catalytic reaction occurs on the surface of the channels where the precious metal coated walls act as catalysts to promote the reaction.

The honeycomb-like structure and channels in the catalyst provide a large surface area, which is important for the purification to be as efficient as possible. This type of catalyst structure is also called a monolith.

When the catalytic converter no longer functions optimally or when the car reaches the end of its life, the catalytic converter can be recycled to reuse the valuable precious metals in new products. This reduces the need to extract new metals and reduces the environmental impact from mining and extracting the metals.
