A 45% Engine Size Catalyst System for MDV2 ULEV Applications 982553
A catalyst system, consisting of two different catalyst technologies within a single canister, was developed for MDV2 (Medium-Duty Vehicles, Class 2) to meet ULEV targets. The catalyst volume versus engine displacement is less than 50%. Three approaches taken: substrate study, PM loading study and new catalyst technology development are illustrated here. The most promising system features new catalyst technologies coated on high cell density substrates.
