I.            NTROD    0

             Maremont Corporation of Caro]l Stream, Illinois, has applied for an

exemption to market the Walker Manufacturing two—way catalytic converter

series 15111 and 15112 under new part numbers 28711 and 28712 in accordance

with the California regulations on new aftermarket catalytic converters.

       II.       CcONCLUSION
             The Walker Manufacturing two—way converter meet the requirements

of the Californina regulations on new aftermarket catalytic converters and

was granted exemption in our E.0. D—182—i dated November 7, 1988 for

application on vehicles not exceeding 6000 Ibs and 6.6L.

III.         RECOMMENDATION
             The staff recommends that the exemption be granted as requested and

that Executive Order No. D~184—1 permitting the advertisement, sales and

installation of the Walker Manufacturing two—way aftermarket catalytic

converter as part numbers 28711 and 28712 by Maremont Corporation be issued.

IV.      DEVICE DESCRIPTION

             The Walker two—way catalytic converter consists of honeycomb type

substrates coated with platinum and palladium and enclosed in an outer shell

or container of stainless steel.


           The Walker catalytic converter uses materials and construction

similar to the original equipment manufacturers.     The catalytic converter

is sold with installation instructions and kits as shown in the application

catalog.     The converter is 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

           Walker Manufacturing provided test data on the catalytic converter.

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

California.     The conversion efficiencies for the two—way converter which

Maremont intends to market as part numbers 28711 and 28712 for maximum

vehicle weight of 6000 lbs and 6.6 liter engines are 81.8 for HC and 92.9

for CO.     The above conversion efficiencies meet the requirements of the

California regulations.

           The staff based the evaluation of the new aftermarket two—way

converter on the data from Qlson Engineering tests.
