What is the Difference Between Auto Catalyst and Diesel Catalyst?

Diesel engines can be found in a variety of applications, ranging from personal transportation and commercial vehicles to heavy machinery and manufacturing. When purchasing diesel converters, there is an astounding range of sizes, configurations, and precious metal contents to be aware of. Every modern diesel vehicle contains diesel oxidation catalysts. They are usually the first part to encounter the toxic gases released by the engine. The diesel oxidation catalyst’s function is to convert carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide and decompose unspent fuel. Although it is the smallest unit in the catalytic converter, it is the most valuable because it contains palladium and platinum, which gives it a high recycling value. Diesel catalytic converters do not contain the precious metal rhodium. Rhodium is the precious metal that catalyzes the reduction reaction in a three-way converter, which converts NOx into nitrogen gas and oxygen. Rhodium, however, cannot efficiently reduce NOx gases in a diesel converter due to the high oxygen content of diesel exhaust. As a result, rhodium is not present in #diesel converters. We can assist you whether you are looking to recycle diesel or gasoline engine catalysts. When it comes to recycling, we provide transparency and fair dealing.
