J342_201303 - Spark Arrester Test Procedure for Large Size Engines

Document Number: J342_201303
Revision Number:
Spark Arrester Test Procedure for Large Size Engines
This SAE Recommended Practice establishes equipment and procedures for the evaluation of the effectiveness and other performance characteristics of spark arresters or turbochargers used on the exhaust system of large engines normally used in a railroad locomotive, stationary power plant, and other similar applications. This document does not cover applications requiring flame arresting, exhaust gas cooling, or isolation from explosive gases. Two test methods are presented; a laboratory test using ambient air (cold test) and an engine test using exhaust gases (hot test). The hot test is preferred.
