The Increase of HC Emissions from a Direct Injection Diesel Engine during Long Idling Operation 922227

Blue smoke and HC emissions from a direct injection diesel engine increase gradually during long idling operation (for a few hours). The extent of this increase depends on the injection nozzle specification and engine operating conditions. The accumulation of carbon deposits on the nozzle tip and combustion chamber wall will depend on these factors.
Since the carbon absorbs fuel well, low volatility components can not evaporate during the combustion period and the unburned fuel emissions increase over time. This tendency changes according to fluctuations of spray shape and cylinder to cylinder fuel quantity variations.
