Exhaust Fitting Clacton

Hidden away underneath your vehicle, the exhaust system is responsible for collecting and directing harmful emissions away from the vehicle; reducing the pollutants released into the environment; and minimizing engine exhaust noise.

Exhausts can corrode from both the inside and outside. How long your exhaust lasts for depends on how far and how often you drive your car, rather than the length of time it has been fitted. Short trips around town tend to corrode exhausts more quickly than long journeys.

Exhaust manifold:

The exhaust manifold collects emissions from the engine; this photograph shows a typical manifold for a 4 cylinder engine. Each cylinder has its own outlet into the manifold, which merges the 4 exhaust streams into just one or two outlets for the downpipe(s).

 

The Downpipe, Cat & DPF:

The downpipe(s) attach to the manifold, carrying the exhaust stream vertically down to below the vehicle (hence “downpipe”) and rearwards to the CAT (catalytic converter) and/or the DPF (diesel particulate filter).

These serve to reduce pollutants released into the environment. CATs transform harmful gases such as carbon monoxide / hydrocarbons / nitrogen oxide into safer ones like oxygen / nitrogen / water vapour / carbon dioxide. The DPF is only fitted to diesel engines, and removes dangerous solid particulates from the gases.

 

Exhaust pipe:

The central exhaust pipe carries the remaining gases from the CAT &/or DPF back along the underneath of the vehicle, to the rear silencer box.

 

Silencer Box & Tailpipe:

The silencer box helps cancel out the noise created by the engine. The exhaust gases enter a chamber containing perforated tubes that delay and deflect sound waves into two competing vibrations that cancel each other out. The gases then pass through the tailpipe into the atmosphere.
