Abstract:

THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS REDUCTION OF NOX, FORMALDEHYDE AND CARBON MONOXIDE FROM DIESEL BURNERS. A METAL SUBSTRATE CATALYST, NOW UNDER DEVELOPMENT AT CONDAR AND EMPLOYING A UNIQUE INTERNAL STRUCTURE AND NEW PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY, WILL BE LOCATED IN THE EXHAUST STREAM TO BURN AWAY POLLUTANT RESIDUALS. THE UNIQUE PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE NEW CATALYST SUGGEST ITS USE IN A WIDE VARIETY OF NEW APPLICATIONS SUCH AS THE DIESEL BURNER. UNLIKE CERAMIC CATALYSTS, IT WILL NOT SHATTER WHEN SUBJECTED TO THERMAL SHOCK, JARRING OR PULSATIONS. THE PRESSURE DROP ACROSS THE NEW CATALYST IS MINIMAL BECAUSE OF ITS THIN WALLS AND HIGH FRONTAL OPER AREA. ALSO, ITS VERY LOW THERMAL INERTIA ALLOWS IT TO ACTIVATE MUCH EARLIER DURING START-UP OF THE DIESEL BURNER. THE PROGRAM EFFORT WILL BE DIRECTED TOWARD (1) LIFE TESTING WITH THE NEW CATALYST, (2) REDUCING AND/OR ELIMINATING POLLUTANTS, (3) EVALUAT ING THE PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE CATALYST OVER TIME USING GAS SAMPLING AND PARTICIPATE COLLECTION TECHNIQUES, (4) DETERMINING SUITABLE, SIMPLE MECHANICAL MEANS OF ATTACHING OR INSERTING THE CATALYST MODULE IN EXISTING DIESEL BURNERS AND (5) EXPLORING THE POTENTIAL FOR SECONDARY HEAT RECOVERY.
