Experimental Study of Impact of Ash and Soot on Tail Pipe Particle Number 2019-01-0976

Tailpipe particle number (PN) emission limits for heavy-duty diesel engines have been introduced as part of the off-highway Stage V standards. To meet the required limits a diesel particulate filter (DPF) with high filtration efficiency is required. The DPF relies on formation of a soot cake layer on the channel walls to achieve this high filtration efficiency. Off highway Stage V certification cycles are significantly higher in temperature than their on-highway counterparts, leading to difficulty in creating and maintaining a soot cake in the DPF. Hence for these applications meeting particle number requirements is challenging.
To meet the high filtration efficiency requirements the DPF will have to reduce mean pore size, pore standard deviation, and increase wall thickness, in turn increasing backpressure, which results in a fuel consumption penalty. Another option is to evaluate the impact of temperature stable ash accumulation on DPF filtration efficiency. This paper discusses the ability of ash and soot to improve PN filtration.
