NEW METHODS FOR REDUCING VISIBLE EMISSIONS DIESEL ENGINES
It is general practice today when starting diesel engines, to inject excess fuel, i.e. an additional amount of fuel in excess of the full load quantity, independent of ambient and engine temperatures and regardless of whether this is necessary or not. It is demonstrated that excess fuel should only be injected when starting a cold engine at ambient temperatures below freezing point and that the quantity of excess fuel should increase with falling temperature, reaching its maximum at the minimum engine starting temperature. A burner starting aid of simple design and fully automatic operation is described, which has been newly developed and is used to suppress, or even to eliminate, the emission of the white and blue smoke during cold start and warm-up.
