Ultra Thin Wall Substrates - Trends for Performance in FTP and US06 Tests 2002-01-0356

This paper compares the emissions performance of four ultra thin wall ceramic substrates with standard wall thickness product on a chassis dynamometer for two different substrate volumes. This comparison helps establish performance trends and provides useful information for selection of substrates in designing catalytic converter systems.
This experimental study tests and compares four ultra thin wall products (400/4, 600/3, 600/4, and 900/2) with a standard wall product (400/6.5) at two different substrate volumes. Engine bench aging is used to simulate typical aged conditions. Temperature data as well as second by second and bag emissions data for hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and oxides of nitrogen were used to evaluate the relative performances of the substrates. The US FTP and US06 driving cycles were used as protocols for the comparison.
Results suggest that lower bulk density and higher geometric surface area interact to lead to lower emissions. Results further suggest that for high flow rate applications (such as those seen in the US06 cycle), substrate volume remains an important factor.
