Emitec to Provide High Performance Catalyst Technology to Ford
Dick Pacini :
Michigan-based emission control technologies manufacturer Emitec Inc. has signed an agreement with Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) of Australia to supply low backpressure catalytic converters for their line of high performance vehicles powered by Ford’s new 5.0L Coyote V8 engine.
The new catalyst technology uses a perforated, ultra-thin-foil metallic substrate designed to withstand the highest exhaust flow rates, while providing minimum exhaust backpressure. The small, evenly spaced perforations of the substrate matrix allow the exhaust flow to expand and redistribute, leading to better flow uniformity and higher overall catalyst efficiency. A special brazing technology (“HD design”) was also developed, tested and verified to support robust catalyst operation under the most severe conditions for the full life of the vehicle.
The new catalyst will be used in FPV’s new Boss V8 range of vehicles starting in October 2010, and is also used on the new Euro 4 FPV F6 since June 2010.
Emitec Inc. is a subsidiary of Emitec GmbH, the world’s leading manufacturer of metallic substrates and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) components for exhaust gas emissions control of cars, trucks, off-road equipment and recreational vehicles. Since its foundation in 1986, Emitec has sold more than 110 million metallic substrates worldwide.
