Catalytic converters are specialist devices mounted in the exhaust system to minimise the emission of harmful pollutants.
Your car produces gases such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides which can be poisonous or carcinogenic. The converter substrate creates a chemical reaction between these gases converting them to other relatively harmless gases. Oxygen sensors in the exhaust also help reduce emissions by adjusting the fuel mixture.
Operating between 400 – 800°C, a catalytic converter can reduce your vehicle’s emission of carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and hydrocarbons by up to 90%.
Check out our range of catalytic converters for petrol or diesel engines: OE replacement units, Euro-compliant universal cats, high flow performance models and diesel particulate filters.

This listing is our base range of universal catalytic converters only. Our range of direct-fit catalytic converters continues to grow as product becomes available. These model specific parts are listed as exhaust components in our muffler and pipe catalogue.
A diesel particulate filter (DPF) removes soot from the exhaust gas of diesel engines. DPFs, like catalytic converters, work to reduce vehicle emissions, but instead of letting exhaust gases flow through it like a catalytic converter, the blocked ends of the DPF substrate force the exhaust gas through the substrate walls, where the soot particles are deposited. This results in cleaner exhaust gas going out.
