Catalytic converters can fail due to physical damage, normal degradation, contamination, overheating, internal disintegration and restriction in the substrate physical damage should be an obvious reason for a dtc p0420/0430 being stored in the diagnostic memory. The catalytic converters in automobiles, for example, contain metals like platinum and palladium that aid in reactions that break down air pollutants catalysts are a mainstay of the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, and the global market for catalysts is estimated at $20 billion per year. In this paper cfd study for five different geometry of catalytic converter is studied the inlet geometry of the converter is changed with respect to right angle triangle theorem.
Modern catalytic converters for the treatment of exhaust gases in vehicles with a combustion engine have largely contributed to reducing of pollutant emissions by oxidation or reduction, ie the. The base year considered for the study is 2015, and the forecast period is 2016 to 2021 objectives of the study: and value (usd million), of the automotive catalytic converter market to define, describe, and project the automotive catalytic converter market by catalytic converter type (three-way catalysts, selective catalytic reduction. Catalytic converter has become a necessity to achieve low emissions in all the vehicles the design of catalytic converter has become critical which requires a thorough understanding of fluid flow inside the catalytic converter. The global automotive catalytic converter market is expected to register a cagr of around 5%, during the forecast period the prime factors driving the growth of the market are enactment of stringent emission norms, and growing automotive industry in asia-pacific region, especially in countries, such as india, china, thailand, and japan.
