  3. 3. Introduction 3  An automotive exhaust system consists of the following seven Muffler components from the ???? engine side: a. an exhaust manifold, b. a front pipe, c. a flexible pipe,Muffler - A device with baffled d. a catalytic converter,passages through which exhaustgases are channeled in order to e. a center pipe,muffle engine sound f. a main muffler, and3 12/10/2011 g. a tail end pipe.
  4. 4. THE MAIN MUFFLER ABSORBS AND REDUCES THE NOISE OF THE EXHAUST GAS, AND IS COMPOSED OF AN OUTER SHELL, 4 Muffler is a part of exhaust system that have many functions, and made from metal.4 12/10/2011
  5. 5. The principal properties required 51. high-temperatures strength,2. thermal fatigue properties,3. oxidation resistance and salt corrosion resistance at high temperatures, and4. the same required for the components away from the engine (cold end) is corrosion resistance to salt damage and exhaust gas condensate.5 12/10/2011
  6. 6. Ferritic Stainless Steels ( steels in the 400series contains 10.5% to 20% chromium ) 6  Good for corrosion resistance and resistance to scaling at elevated temperatures  nonhardenable by heat treating and are always magnetic.  is used in applications where resistance to corrosion is important, such as automotive emission control exhaust systems.6 12/10/2011

  8. 8. Kinds of corrosion 8 Condensate Pitting Corrosion Exterior Salt Pitting Crevice corrosion Galvanic corrosion Oxidation Hot Salt Attack8 12/10/2011
  9. 9. Condensate Pitting Corrosion 9The main muffler is heated by the exhaust gas to about 400°C, at the highest,during a long-distance run and the condensation of water does not take placebut in the case of a short-distance run, the temperature does not go up andcondensation occurs inside it.9 12/10/2011
  10. 10. 1. By the presence of the condensate, a very corrosive humid environment is formed inside a muffler.2. On the other hand, the outer surface of a muffler is exposed to a salt corrosion environment of the deicing salt. Chloride-containing de-icing salts on the roads in colder countries greatly increases the rate of corrosion on the exterior surfaces.10 12/10/2011
  11. 11. Prevention 11  Material selection  Coating (Vitreous Enamel)  Using crystalline of zeolite and activated alumina11 12/10/2011
  12. 12. Advantages and Disadvantage 12  Advantages  Disadvantages1) Give an arthistic value 1) Decrease the life time 2) Of all automobile exhaust failures, about 80% are caused by corrosion 3) Cause a noise problem12 12/10/2011
