Transient Emissions from an Uncolled Diesel Engine

1986-05-01
860224
A Cummins B55 in3 350 bhp heavy-duty, turbocharged diesel engine was tested in fully cooled and uncooled modes over the EPA transient emission test cycles for comparison of gaseous and particulate emissions. The results are presented at the same fuel injection timing and at similar NOx emission levels. Also, steady state emission measurements and analysis of real-time transient emission data of selected runs are discussed. The uncooled engine does not represent an adiabatic (insulated) engine in its emission characateristics, but may indicate some trends. It may be useful in identifying design and/or operating parameters that need optimization.

HVOF Cermet Coatings for High Horse Power Diesel Engines

High Velocity Oxygen Fuel sprayed face coatings have shown great promise for piston rings used for High Power Density Diesel Engines. Various coatings have been tested on both wear test rigs and in engines. A highly dense HVOF cermet coating was developed with reasonable crack resistance during service. The HVOF coated piston rings wore three to six times lower than chrome plating. Cylinder liner (counter face) wear was found to be one to three times higher than chrome. However, engine oil consumption and blow by were within normal values. The HVOF coating is considered to be an excellent replacement for chrome plating. The coating process is more environmentally friendly than the chrome plating process. Also, the coating has potentially lower or equivalent production cost when compared to chrome.
