In modern automobiles, exhaust manifolds and catalytic converters are increasingly merging into a single, compact component - the manifold c
atalytic converter. In terms of exhaust technology, this has the advantage that the cooling path of the exhaust gas to the catalyst
is significantly reduced, the catalyst heats up faster and reaches its operating temperature earlier. There is the possibility of
using the catalyst as Hauptkat or together with another underbody catalyst as Vorkat.
The replacement exhaust manifold catalytic converters combine the two core competencies of the LRT as a leading exhaust manifold manufacturer and catalytic converter producer.
They offer the highest quality, the best price / performance ratio and the widest range in the aftermarket.
All LRT exhaust manifold catalytic converters were awarded the Blue Angel for replacement catalytic converters at the end of 2013, Europe's oldest and
best-known environmental label. The Blue Angel stands for a permanently low emission level of the catalytic converters and long life. And because the LRT is so confident
in the quality of our products, we give a 5 year unlimited mileage warranty.
The LRT Cast Exhaust Manifold Catalytic Converter combines thermodynamically optimized catalytic converters in their round design with the well-known,
high-quality LRT exhaust manifolds. As with our pure exhaust manifolds, the LRT also uses vermicular graphite cast
iron in Cast Exhaust Manifold Catalytic Converter, which guarantees a long life, especially due to the higher
resistance to temperature changes, form, and oxidation.
To make replacement as easy as possible, LRT Cast Exhaust Manifold Catalytic Converter are always supplied with all the required installation materials,
such as gaskets, bolts and nuts.
As the cast exhaust manifold loses a lot of heat energy while heating the heavy cast part, in modern vehicles the casting is often
replaced by a tubular or shell exhaust manifold. The catalytic converter sitting directly on the manifold reaches its operating temperature faster,
since less heat is lost when the exhaust manifold heats up.
LRT tubular exhaust manifolds are made of stainless steel pipes, hand welded and the failure points of the original part are drastically improved structurally.
To make replacement as easy as possible, LRT tubular manifold catalytic converters are always supplied with all the required installation materials, such as gaskets, bolts and nuts.
Shell exhaust manifolds are characterized by a lightweight construction, a low thermal mass and the resulting advantages for the catalytic converter.
In addition, with shell casings an even more compact construction than with cast iron or tubular manifolds is possible, which plays
an increasingly important role in the increasingly narrow engine compartment of modern vehicles.
Due to the enormously high costs for the hydro-forming tools, shell exhaust manifold catalytic converters in the aftermarket are in many cases hardly
economically viable. Thanks to the clever combination of standardized hydro-forming parts and tubular elements, LRT still manages
to offer many of these shell exhaust manifold catalytic converters with an optimal price / performance ratio in the aftermarket.
To make replacement as easy as possible, LRT shell manifold catalytic converters are always supplied with all the required installation materials, such as gaskets, bolts and nuts.
