Muffler Information

Silencers are the main part of any mechanism with internal combustion engine. It is a complex device that is designed to reduce the rate of outflow of exhaust gases and their heat, as well as damage to the environment. In modern motor industry silencers serve not only to suppress noise. They also act as a cooling device for the exhaust gases from the combustion chamber. Typical muffler is designed to work with a specific model of car. Its parameters are selected in such a way as to maintain the ideal engine running. In short, the muffler reduces engine power due to the formation of reverse air flow, which does not allow exhaust gas to go completely out of the combustion chamber.

It is possible to prevent premature failure of the silencer. It is necessary the muffler to be to resistant to all kinds of corrosion processes and other external negative impacts.

In modern cars mufflers are made of aluminium-backed steel. At the present day, the European standard imposes the most stringent requirements for noise parameters of the engine, because vehicles are the main source of noise pollution of the environment. It is for this reason that carmakers have to invest heavily in the development and production of this part, constantly reducing the noise level.
