When you get behind the wheel just about any automobile, or at least those that have not been modified from their factory form, you will have hundreds of working parts that are moving all the same time to make sure that you not only get to your destination in the quickest amount of time possible without any sort of struggle but also that you get there in the most efficient way possible when it comes to how you’re affecting the environment. This is why the emissions equipment is operating on your car because, well, the EPA requires it and it would probably also be good to have some air left over to breathe.
One of those pieces of equipment that you’ll find that is designed to make your car more efficient is what’s known as a catalytic converter. Essentially, what the job of the catalytic converter is would be to take all of the gases that are going to be expelled from your vehicle and convert them into other gases thanks to material inside the housing that will make those gasses a little bit less harmful for the environment. After being warmed up, the converter is constantly recycling gases into other materials that will make your car much more efficient in the long run.
If you follow along with the video below, you’ll get a little bit of an idea of exactly how a piece of equipment like this works and how it’s acting every single time you get behind the wheel. It’s amazing how something so small can have such a big impact when it comes to exactly what’s coming out of the exhaust of your car. It’s really amazing how much is operating in there to make sure that everything is safer for us. Check it out as they split open the converter to see exactly what it looks like inside and how all these different pieces are coming together for one common goal.
