Q & A

1. Whether the temperature of cleaned air while cleaning process rises or not?

No. Heat that escaped while after-burning of pollutions, insignificant as compared with heat capacity of cleaned air.

2. What is the useful life of the catalyst and where it can be changed?

Catalyst is not active storage. Degradation can be only in case if gas converter applied in limiting or outrageous behavior (pollutions which are bigger than rated value for a long time). In this case for recovery during 4 hours needed to heat catalyst up to 260-300C. Then catalyst efficiency recovers up to 80-85% of initial efficiency. In case of need catalyst can be bought from manufacturer.
