A Study of Simplified Measurement Method for Diesel Particulate

Event: JSAE Spring Conference
A total carbon analyzer having catalytic oxidization furnace and NDIR detector has been developed to measure diesel particulate without dilution tunnel and microbalance method. Particulate collected on the quartz filter is oxidized in the small volume furance fed by oxygen, thereby drysoot and SOF are converted to CO2 quickly. Emission rate of carbon calculated from the CO2 concentration and carrier gas (O2) flow rate.
Test results of this system corresponded with that of microbalance method with and without dilution tunnel.
