Air System Parts
The air system of a machine is responsible for the flow of air and exhaust gases in and out of the engine. This system is critical for the efficient and effective operation of the machine.
The intake system typically consists of an air filter, throttle body, intake manifold, and intake valves.
Air is drawn through the air filter, which removes contaminants, and then flows through the throttle body and intake manifold before entering the combustion chamber. The intake valves control the flow of air into the combustion chamber.
The exhaust system typically consists of exhaust manifolds, exhaust pipes, a catalytic converter, and a muffler.
The exhaust gases are expelled from the combustion chamber and flow through the exhaust manifolds and pipes to the catalytic converter, which converts harmful pollutants into less harmful ones. The muffler then reduces the noise level of the exhaust gases before they are released into the atmosphere.
