SULFUR OXIDE MEASUREMENT IN AIRCRAFT TURBINE ENGINE EXHAUST
A limited investigation was conducted to measure the oxides of sulfur in aircraft turbine engine exhaust. The objective was to establish the ratio of sulfur trioxide (SO3) to sulfur dioxide (SO2) to be used in support of the climatic impact assessment program. The SO3 concentration was found to be 13.8 percent of the SO2 concentration as determined by wet chemistry analysis. Sulfur recovered in the samples was approximately 50 percent of the total sulfur in the fuel.
