             Maremont Corporation of Carol     Stream,   lllinols, has applied for an

     exemption for their new aftermarket three—way catalytle converters in

     accordance with the new Californla regulations on new aftermarket catalytic

     use of their three—way plus and three—way catalysts          in two—way applications.

     LT.     CONCLUS1ON

             The applicant has submitted all       the required    information and based

     on the submitted exhaust emissions test data, the staff concludes that the

     three—way and three—way plus cataiytlic converters meet the criteria set

     forth in Vehicle Code Section 27156 and Title 13, California Code of

     Regulations, Section 2222(h) as adopted by the Board.

     LE .    RECOMMENDAT

             The staff recommends that the exemption be granted as requested and

     that Executive Order No. D—184 permitting the advertisement, sales and

     iInstallation of the new aftermarket cataiytic converters be issued.

     IV.     DEVIGCE DESCRIPTION

             The Maremont three—way catalytic converter consists of honeycomb

     type substrates coated with platinum and palladium plus rhodium and enclosed

     in an outer shell or container of stainless steel.       The thres—way plus

     catalytic converter     Incorporates an air   injection tube between two

     substrates.


~




            The Maremont Corporation catalytic converters use materials and

    construction similar to the original equipment manufacturers.        The catalytic

    converters are sold with    installation   instructions and kits as shown     in the

    application catalog.     They are also sold with a two year or 25,000 mile

    warranty on —the substrates and five years or 50,000 miles on the container

    or shell.                      ‘

    v.      DEVICE_EVALUATION

            Maremont Corporation provided test data on the catalytic converters.

    The tests were conducted by Olson Engineering      Inc., Huntington Beach,

    California.    The conversion efficiencies for the three—way plus converter

    which Maremont    intends to market for two—way application on 5.0    liter

    engines are 78.1 for HC and 89.7 for CO.      The conversion efficiencles for

    the three—way converter are 86.6 for HC, 83.1     for CO and 68.9 for NOx.      The

    conversion efficiencies for the three—way converter which Maremont       intends

    to market for two—way application on 3.8 liter engines are 89.6 for HC and

    89.4 for CO.     All of the above conversion efficiencies meet the requireménts

    of the new California regulations.

            The staff based the evaluation of the new aftermarket three—way and

    three—way plus converters on the data from Olson Engineering tests.
