A catalytic converter is an emissions control device that reduces the level of harmful exhaust gases that enter the atmosphere. It works by converting exhaust emissions into less harmful ones when the gases pass through it, triggering a chemical reaction. In 1993, it became a legal requirement in the UK for vehicles to be fitted with a catalytic converter as part of the Euro Emissions Standards to improve air quality. Today, BM Catalysts manufacture Europe’s largest range of high-quality aftermarket catalytic converters.Download technical poster
Diesel vehicles have become increasingly popular as diesel engine technology continues to advance due to their superior fuel economy. The drawback with diesel vehicles, however, is that they have high emissions compared to their petrol counterparts. In response to this, Euro Emissions Standards were tightened and greater environmentally friendly initiatives developed. One of the most prominent was the introduction of diesel particulate filters (DPFs). The DPF is part of the exhaust system which helps reduce the amount of harmful particulate matter expelled within exhaust gases.Download technical poster
The front pipe is a length of pipe running between the manifold and the catalytic converter. Similarly, a connecting pipe is a length of pipe travelling between the catalytic converter and the back box (or an additional emissions control device). Our front and connecting pipes are made from high quality materials, with our range manufactured to fit most leading makes of vehicles.
We carry Type Approval on a wide range of catalytic converters and DPFs. For more information on our complete range of products, please contact us
