Laboratory Evaluation of an Oxidation Catalytic Converter At Various Simulated Altitudes.
Proc SAE Tech Paper Series: Diesel Comb Emission & Exh After Treatment SAE PP 183-190 :183-190
The U.S. Bureau of Mines is conducting laboratory evaluations of the effectiveness of oxidation catalytic converters (occ's) for application on diesel engines used in underground mines. It is important to evaluate exhaust control devices for application on mining vehicles at various altitudes because mines are located at a wide range of elevations. The objective of this work is to determine the characteristics and performance of an occ at various altitudes as well as investigate an altitude simulation technique used in a laboratory setting.
