Tenneco announced that it has expanded its Walker line of CalCat catalytic converters.
The CalCat line is California Air Resources Board (CARB) compliant. The company will see 80 released in 2018, which will be more than four times more than what came out in the previous 12 months.
“Our aggressive investment in Walker CalCat and Ultra converter coverage is designed to help our customers outperform the competition in one of the automotive service industry’s most promising categories,” said John Perrin, executive director of product management for Tenneco’s North America aftermarket business. “Regardless of where a shop might be located, it’s our goal to provide fast, convenient access to the right Walker converter technology for any passenger vehicle it might have the opportunity to repair.”
The replacement converters include coverage for early, pre-OBDII applications to the latest vehicles certified to the U.S. LEV1 SULEV (super ultra-low emissions vehicle) classification.
Walker CalCat converters comply with specific pre-OBDII and OBDII requirements in regions following CARB emissions standards.
