Development of a Thermal Enhancer™ for Combined Partial Range Burning and Hydrocarbon Dosing on Medium and Heavy Duty Engine Applications 2011-01-0298
A Thermal Enhancer™ has been developed. Primarily, this device
functions to increase exhaust gas temperatures to ensure
appropriate catalytic heating as an enabler for diesel particulate
filter regeneration and nitrogen oxide reduction technologies such
as Selective Catalytic Reduction. In addition, this system also
gives capability for hydrocarbon dosing as an efficient means for
full active regeneration of a diesel particulate filter.
An overview of this system and its functional applications will
be given. Focus will be directed toward the design and test
methodology that was adopted to develop a combustor.
Results obtained from steady-state, stationary and transient
engine dynamometer tests will illustrate the performance benefits
and emissions control capabilities of this system.
