Hydrocarbons Speciation of Automotive Emissions Using High Speed Gas Chromatography 950513

A high speed gas chromatography system has been developed for automotive emissions measurement. The system is capable of quantifying hydrocarbons from C2 to C12 compounds. The separation time required for an analysis is only five minutes. Major technical challenges were (1) tandem quick heat cold traps, (2) four parallel ovens design, and (3) the mid-point back flush technique. Demonstrations of the system have been done using FTP75 cold transient phase. The results indicate that the system is well suited for hydrocarbon speciation measurement with very simple and quick operations.
