MagnaFlow ceramic catalysts have large surface areas to speed up the exhaust breakdown process while a ribbed, stainless steel body and external shield further protect them. Universal design. Not legal in California.
A. MagnaFlow engineers its heavy metal converters with maximum airflow in mind. The large surface area of the honeycomb ceramic catalyst combines with a thick, detailed coating process to allow the most exhaust to flow through the converter. In contrast with most converters, these heavy metal converters contain greater concentrations of catalytically active materials, thereby increasing the volume of chemical reactions that break down harmful gases. Innovative technology allows each catalyst to both oxidize and reduce harmful emissions.
B. A ribbed body encases the ceramic to reduce expansion and distortion when the converter reaches its high operating temperature. The ribs form channels that hold the ceramic in proper alignment and protect the cushioning mat from direct exposure to exhaust gases.
C. MagnaFlow converters have a smooth-flowing, 1/2" lap joint where the neck and body connect. This joint prevents the neck from extending into the body, where it could impede exhaust flow.
D. MagnaFlow maintains separate dies for several converter body sizes and corresponding neck sizes. This process eliminates the need to adapt neck sizes to make them fit on a single converter body size, which would increase back pressure and decrease airflow and horsepower.
E. The ceramic catalysts are seam welded to a heavy-gauge, stainless steel converter body. Furthermore, a stainless steel heat shield is seam welded to the inner converter body. This style of welding forms a strong bond between the converter's components and prevents the ceramics from shifting.
F. Ribbing on the shield offers a final layer of protection against heat damage while reinforcing the structural stability of the entire converter.
