Abstract:

Compact Membrane Systems, Inc. (CMS) has been a pioneer in modifying the air charge to diesel engines with air separation membranes. Nitrogen-enriched air (NEA) supplied from polymeric membranes mounted on highway truck diesel engines have been shown to substantially reduce the NOx formation and emissions from the engine. The NEA membrane's co-product, Oxygen-enriched air (OEA), when supplied to the intake of laboratory diesel engines has been known to substantially increase the engine's power density. This project will develop a prototype membrane system that will be integrated on a 100 kW Tactical Quiet Generator for the purpose of enhancing combustion of diesel and JP-8 fuels and boosting the engine's power density.
