Wire mesh catalytic converter seals

KnitMesh Technologies wire mesh catalytic converter seals are used to protect the delicate honeycomb ceramic brick within a catalytic converter from shock and vibration damage.

Protects against gas erosion

Wire mesh catalytic converter seals are manufactured using mesh that is usually compressed in a die to make an even-density, all-metal one-piece end seal ring. They are designed to protect delicate ceramic bricks and intumescent mats from gas erosion and to prevent exhaust gas bypass between the brick and the inner catalytic converter shell. They are also used extensively within diesel particulate filter assemblies.

Twin-seal assemblies

Assemblies with two seals that fit around either end of the monolith brick, that are joined by connecting mesh, can also be produced. These seals are particularly useful where the converter can design does not have any other way of keeping seals in position.
