Mobile catalytic converter applications demand brazed substrates to withstand:
Lower cell counts of 200-300CPSI
- High Vibration
- Thermal Cycling
- Axial & Radial G-Forces
: alleviate pressure drop concerns and allow for passage of soot particles.
Often space is at a premium and metallic substrates can be packed in smaller, more compact locations than a ceramic substrate.
Cooler exhaust temperatures
: Metallic substrates have a lower thermal mass and higher thermal conductivity than ceramic, resulting in faster light-off capabilities and reduction of precious metal costs.
