About Exhaust Hardware
Exhaust system components include muffler, pipes, catalytic converter, and manifolds. Clamps, hangers, gaskets, and seals are other components of the exhaust system which keep all the parts together. These small but critical components seal exhaust system links, prevent the noise of exhaust leaks, and keep the hazardous carbon monoxide (CO) emissions from reaching into the cabin. The traditional exhaust system has many joints where the parts of the system are attached to each other. These parts need to be attached securely to avoid any mishaps and malfunctioning. On some automobiles, the machined surface of the exhaust manifold is directly mounted to the surface of the cylinder head, but on most vehicles, gaskets are used for this purpose. Gaskets are also essential for applications where they were not originally used because the sealing surfaces of the manifolds get wrapped and corroded to the point that the gasket is required for a tight seal. The manifold flange to the exhaust header pipe is another joint where the gasket is typically used and in components such as the catalytic converter.
Exhaust gaskets are made of embossed steel, multi-layer steel, graphite, and copper. Composite gaskets with heat-resistant material are also attached to the steel core. Clamps are commonly used to connect exhaust pipes to muffler, resonators, catalytic converter, and sometimes to connect exhaust pipes. Exhaust clamps fall into two categories: band clamps, sometimes referred to as lap joint clamps, and traditional U-bolt clamps, also referred to as saddle clamps. U-bolt clamps prove to be a less expensive and efficient choice, but their clamping force makes the disassembly of the component difficult. Band clamps apply pressure over a wider area and keep the components safe. Exhaust hangers keep the exhaust system in its intended position and insulate the frame from the vibration of the engine. Many modern OE-style hangers are made of reinforced rubber with holes that slip over metal brackets welded to exhaust pipes and/or mufflers and mounted to the frame. Hangers can crack, tear, and split with age, and are exposed to heat and other elements. Broken hangers can cause the exhaust to hang low, which can reduce the ground clearance and can cause damage to the exhaust systems. Vehicle-specific hangers are the best option for factory-style exhaust system, and universal hangers are suitable for customized systems or when a vehicle-specific hanger is not usable.
