Mid-Bed Supports

One of the main challenges in multi-brick catalytic converter assemblies is maintaining a constant gap between the substrates.  Thermal expansion and other operational factors cause many traditional solutions, such as stamped Inconel clamps, to shift during use; allowing exhaust gasses access to mat edges which causes erosion.

 

ACS Industries, Inc. Mid-Bed Shields are essentially end seals for inter-brick spaces.  In addition to cushioning the system from road-load and other operational stresses, these compressed knitted wire mesh elements also absorb thermal expansion differences between system components, allowing the catalytic converter to expand and contract with no risk of shifting out of place.
 
The world leader in engineered knitted wire mesh solutions, ACS Industries, Inc. has the experience and know-how to design a mid-bed shield to fit any converter or after-treatment application.  The world’s largest vertically integrated knitted wire mesh manufacturer, ACS Industries, Inc. also has the capacity and capability to take a project all the way from design to distribution – in-house every step of the way.
