Active Exhaust recently released a thin-gauge outer-shell stainless steel metal encapsulation to add to its existing product portfolio of double-wall and tube-over-tube insulated exhaust products capable of handling extreme underhood environments. The thin-gauge material offers lower overall weight and product cost while providing design flexibility compared to traditional add-on insulation products. Active’s thermal management technology is an integral part of the exhaust system and therefore eliminates secondary sourcing and operations required to attach the insulation at the assembly line. The thin-gauge encapsulation technology provides less thermal mass allowing minimal heat transfer to the exterior tube, which helps to reduce the overall surface temperature of the exhaust system while maintaining adequate heat in the exhaust flow. The Active thin-gauge technology was designed to accommodate exhaust system and exhaust tubing ranging from 1-in (25-mm) to up to 12-in (305-mm) diameter.
