Others may employ one or two of the following features, but only MagnaFlow puts them all together to create a catalytic converter that exceeds basic needs and functions. Our years of research and development have resulted in many unique features that are exclusive to MagnaFlow. We combine efficient manufacturing techniques and state-of-the-art industrial design to produce an end process and product that sets, rather than meets, the highest standards of product performance and efficiency in the industry. MagnaFlow Direct-Fit Catalytic Converters are designed for easy bolt-on installation for the Professional Installer. Each is designed to exact the original equipment specifications.While the majority of the Direct-Fit Catalytic Converter products do not require welding, cutting or bending, limited applications may require additional welding for optimal installation. CATALYTIC CONVERTER BASICS: MAGNAFLOW CATALYTIC CONVERTER QUALITY.
MagnaFlow converters have a ribbed body that minimizes expansion and distortion when the converter heats up. The ribs form a channel that protects the cushioning mat from the direct exposure to exhaust gasses and they hold the ceramic catalyst in proper alignment. MagnaFlow converters have a 1/2 lap-joint where the necks meet the body.The neck does not extend into the converter body where it could hamper exhaust flow. MagnaFlow converters have separate dies on different sized inlets. MagnaFlow uses a monolithic honeycomb catalyst. The ceramic is designed for maximum flow and surface area. The coating method is strictly controlled to maintain exact specifications. An improper coating could result in flow restrictions or an emission test failure. MagnaFlow uses a heavier gauge stainless steel, tip to tip. Others use mixed weights and materials.
MagnaFlow converters are seam welded close to the converter body for a strong, tight bond. We don't weld along the edge which could allow the converter to expand like the folds in an accordion, allowing catalyst to move around. MagnaFlow installs a factory capped, 90-degree air tube on with air converters.This saves time during installation. There is no need for additional labor to weld on an air tube or to create a bend when only an air tube stub is provided. MagnaFlow uses an aluminized or stainless OEM-style ribbed heat shield that creates a rigid wall of protection against heat and adds to the structural stability of the converter. INSPECTION TEMPERATURE & SHELL DISCOLORATION.
Catalytic converter shell coloration is a good indicator of Converter efficiency and light-off. Converter efficiency depends on factors including exhaust gas composition and temperatures.Converter internal reactions (Light-off) begin to occur at Exhaust Gas Temperatures between 400 and 800 Deg C. High operating temperatures should be avoided to prevent degradation of the converter.
Always note any conditions that may prevent a converter from reaching Light-off temperature.
