Stringent requirements of reduced NOx emission limits in the US have presented engineers and technical staff with numerous challenges. Several in-cylinder technical solutions have been developed for diesel engines to meet 2010 emission standards. These technologies have been optimized and have yielded impressive engine-out results in their ability to reduce emissions to extremely low levels. However, current and state-of-the-art in-cylinder solutions have fallen short of achieving the limits imposed on diesel emissions for 2010. To help meet emissions requirements, the catalyst industry has developed exhaust emission reduction technologies with impressive levels of performance. These technologies include hydrocarbon selective catalytic reduction (SCR), NOx absorber catalysts, and urea SCR.
This seminar will begin with an explanation of NOx formation in diesel engines and in-cylinder methods for reducing these emissions. The aftertreatment systems for NOx reduction will be explained and the advantages and disadvantages of these emission reduction technologies will be discussed.
In this two-day seminar, the primary focus is on urea SCR and its technology will be fully examined. The important chemical reactions and methods for improving SCR performance by encouraging desirable reactions and avoiding undesirable reactions are explained. Additionally, the components and control of a urea SCR system are detailed and the necessary sensors for its control are described. The SAE paper Laboratory Testing of Urea-SCR Formulations to Meet Tier 2 Bin 5 Emissions is included in the course materials.
