The Katalitichesky converter - the general information and safety measures

The Katalitichesky converter represents the highly reliable, simple device on a design, which in itself does not require any service. Nevertheless it is necessary to pay attention of readers to some important points.

Petrol models

a) At all do not fill equipped catalytic with the converter cars этилированным fuel - lead containing in it is besieged on a surface of the working element of the converter made of valuable metals, gradually reducing efficiency of functioning of the last and in due course leading to its exit out of operation;
b) Give a proper attention to regular service of components of power supply systems and ignitions;
c) In case of occurrence of admissions of ignition it is necessary to refuse car operation, or, at least, to reduce its use to a minimum until the cause of defect will not be eliminated;
d) At all do not make start of the engine of the car by its towage as thus not burnt down fuel will accumulate in the converter where out of action the working element later can ignite and put;
e) do not switch off ignition at high turns of the engine;
f) Occurrence of a light smell of hydrogen sulphide at the first operation phase of the car equipped new catalytic with the converter, is quite natural and should not cause anxiety (use of fuel of bad quality leads to increase of intensity of a smell);
g) Service life каталитического the converter at normal operation of the car usually makes from 80 000 km (50 000 miles) to 160 000 km (100 000 miles) run.

Petrol and diesel models

h) do not use any additives to fuel;
i) At occurrence of a dense dark blue smoke on an exhaust, impellent oil testifying to burning out, car operation should be suspended;
j) Remember that working temperature каталитического the converter is very high - be careful at performance of any works under the car, do not park the car on platforms covered with combustible materials (the dry grass, the fallen down leaves, etc.);
k) Remember that каталитический the converter is the fragile device - address with it extremely cautiously.
