New Concept of Fuel Combustion DOC 2016-01-2213

Diesel exhaust emission control systems often contain DOC (Diesel Oxidation Catalyst) + CSF (Catalyzed Soot Filter) components. In this system PM (particulate matter) is filtered and accumulated in the CSF and such filtered PM is periodically combusted by supplying heat to the CSF. The heat to CSF is generated within the DOC by an exothermic reaction with extra fuel supplied to the DOC. Here the exothermic performance of DOC depends on not only the active catalytic site (such as Pt and/or Pd) but also on the characteristics of the porous material supporting the precious metals.
Various properties of Al2O3, i.e. pore diameter, pore volume, BET surface area, acidity, basicity and the Ea (activation energy) of fuel combustion, used in DOCs and PGM particle size of each DOC were measured. The fuel combustion performance of each DOC was evaluated by diesel engine bench. A correlation between various properties and the fuel combustion performance was investigated by multiple analysis software, modeFRONTIER.
