Application of Real-time Total Sulfur Analysis with UVF Method to Oil Consumption Measurement 2007-01-2062
An analyzer for real-time measure of sulfur compounds in vehicle exhaust gas has been developed utilizing the Ultra Violet Fluorescence (UVF) detection technology. This analyzer measures Total Sulfur (TS) including sulfates in PM. For detecting sulfur components as TS, sample gas is introduced into two combustion furnaces. The TS measurement by the UVF analyzer is considered to be applicable to real-time oil consumption test with sulfur tracing method, because it has high sensitivity and quick response. In this study, the UVF method is evaluated in detail based on the vehicle emission test results.
