Tenneco Brand Catalytic Converter Receives CARB Authorization
Oct. 27, 2017—Tenneco’s Walker Emissions Control brand received the first California Air Resources Board (CARB) executive order authorizing the production and sale of replacement catalytic converters for 125 popular light truck and SUV models certified to the U.S. LEV1 SULEV (Super ultra-low emissions vehicle) classification.
The brand will offer exclusive coverage of 451 unique vehicle applications as compared to other aftermarket suppliers.
The Walker brand’s latest CARB certification covers a wide range of 2004-2006 domestic and foreign-nameplate light trucks and SUVs, including many Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Silverado, Dodge Ram, GMC Yukon, Infiniti QX56, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Land Rover Range Rover, Lincoln Navigator, Nissan Armada, and Saab 9-7 models. Service providers performing emissions repairs on these vehicles are required to utilize replacement components certified to CARB standards for the LEV1 SULEV classification.
Walker CalCat replacement catalytic converters comply with specific pre-OBDII and OBDII requirements in California, New York and other areas following CARB emissions standards. These units feature the right loading of precious metals, the proper catalyst material and design, and a high-technology washcoat, providing enhanced oxygen storage capacity.
Many Walker CalCat converters offer direct-fit, original equipment-style designs and fitment – including hangers, flanges and brackets – to help shops save time. Each CalCat converter is covered by five-year/50,000-mile (80,000-kilometer) emissions and structural warranties.
Tenneco also offers a broad line of Walker Ultra converters for vehicles certified to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) emissions standards.
