What is a Catalytic Converter?

A catalytic converter is a vehicle emissions control device and is a part of a vehicles exhaust system it converts toxic pollutants that are found in exhaust gases to less toxic pollutants. Some catalytic converters are built into the manifold and are a combined unit.

The catalyst itself is often a mix of precious metals like platinum, palladium and rhodium. Cerium, iron, manganese and nickel are also used, although each has limitations or restrictions in which countries they are permitted to be used.

Common faults:

A common reason for replacement is due to poor filtering effect. This is normally found when carrying out an emissions test at an annual MOT. The fact that the catalyst is a part of the exhaust system, they can be prone to corrosion so another common reason a catalytic converter will need to be renewed is if it is rusty and blowing.
