72 Investigation of low emission two-stroke cycle engine chainsaw 2002-32-1841

This paper presents some experimental and theoretical results of a low emission two-stroke cycle spark ignition engine for chainsaws, applied a stratified scavenging method to reduce Total Hydrocarbon (THC) emission caused by air/fuel mixture short-circuiting during the scavenging process. Stratified scavenging methods are applied reed valves to control air sucked into transfer ports for stratified scavenging during sucking process. The new chainsaw engine, however, is applied piston valves instead of the reed valves to keep the same size and to be simple structure as conventional Schnurle scavenging engine chainsaws. The piston has grooves built with both sides. The grooves connect an air inlet to transfer ports to suck air into the transfer ports during the sucking process. The new chainsaw, having the same power as conventional chainsaws, is reduced THC emission to about 1/3 of conventional one and can meet to EPA Phase II regulation on and after 2005 without catalyst.
