INVESTIGATIONS CONCERNING THE EMPLOYMENT POSSIBILITIES OF THE DIESEL-GAS PROCESS FOR REDUCING EXHAUST EMISSIONS, ESPECIALLY SOOT (PARTICULATE MATTERS).
In an attempt to abate soot emissions, diesel fuel for a direct-injection, single-cylinder diesel engine was step-by-step replaced with natural gas. The gas was introduced into the intake system. As a result of this, soot emissions were decidedly improved and maximum power was increased. As an undesirable secondary effect, especially at small loads, there was an unacceptable increase in brake specific gas-diesel fuel consumption and an increase in emission of harmful gaseous exhaust compontents. Exhaust gas recirculation and throttling were investigated as possible countermeasures. /GMRL/
