FUEL EFFECTS ON DIESEL ODOR IN A SPRAY BURNER

A laboratory burner has been operated with paraffinic mixtures, aromatic mixtures, n-paraffins, cetane standard fuel mixtures, and diesel No. 2 to measure fuel effects upon the production of diesel odor. Of the variables studied which included aromatic content, volatility, cetane number and specific gravity, only aromatic content was found to have a significant effect upon measured odor intensity.
