Abstract

The development of automotive technology to reduce exhaust emissions from vehicles with spark-ignition engines uses catalytic converter technology. This experiment aims to determine the effectiveness of using brass as a catalyst in the spark-ignition engine. For carbon monoxide (CO) measurements on the spark-ignition engine, two muffler measurements were made. First using the AHM 18350-KEV-880 muffler, and second, using a muffler with a brass metal catalytic converter. Measurement of CO exhaust emission levels using an exhaust gas analyzer. The exhaust emission from the spark-ignition engine is measured according to SNI-19-7118.1-2005. The experiment results show that brass metal catalytic converters can significantly reduce CO and HC emission levels. The average reduction in CO emissions at each RPM is 52%, while the average reduction in HC emissions at each RPM is 29%.
