The neutralization of toxic substances such as nitrogen oxides and carbon monoxide can take place if catalytic converters are used for this purpose. These ensure that carbon monoxide is almost fully converted into carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxides into nitrogen. A small part of the fuel that was not fully combusted during the combustion process in the engine compartment and that entered the exhaust system is similarly rendered harmless in the catalytic converter. The chemical processes are referred to as oxidation and reduction; these can convert and eliminate harmful substances to a high degree at full catalytic converter capacity utilisation.
With the constant changes to the regulations of the emission standard, the demands on the exhaust system and above all the catalytic converters are also increasing. For this reason, it is important that only catalytic converters are installed that fulfill the highest requirements. If this is not the case, this could lead to problems during the main inspection. It can also happen that toxic exhaust gases enter the passenger compartment, which has consequences that are hazardous to health. With a genuine remanufactured catalytic converter for Mercedes-Benz vans, you will receive the highest quality, help protect the environment and go easy on your wallet.
