EXPERIMENTS WITH A CATALYTIC CLEANER FOR CAR ENGINE EXHAUST GASES

INVERKAN AV PULSERANDE AVGASSTROEM PA OMSAETTNINGEN AV KOLMONOXID I EN KATALYSATORBAEDD

Trials have been made with a fixed layer of a catalyst through which the exhaust gas flows radially. This was used to determine the extraction of carbon monoxide from pulsed exhaust gases from a Volvo B18 engine. The layer of catalyst consisted of 0.1% platinum on spherical grains of aluminium oxide. Pulses of exhaust gas were produced with the aid of an oscillating fluidic valve. The tests revealed no difference in carbon monoxide extraction with forced pulses of gas at a frequency of 35 Hz by comparison with normal flow through the catalyst layer. The addition of air varying quantities had a great influence on the extraction. (Author)
