Spark Arrester Test Procedure for Medium Size Engines(STABILIZED Oct 2020)
This SAE Recommended Practice establishes equipment and procedures for testing spark arresters used on medium-size, single-position internal combustion engines, normally used in transportable, stationary, and vehicular applications, such as highway trucks, agricultural tractors, industrial tractors, other mobile equipment, and motorcycles. This document provides two methods of testing (laboratory testing and engine testing) which may be used to evaluate a spark arrester. It also includes special requirements for screen type devices and an endurance test procedure for screen type spark arresters.
The technical report covers technology, products, or processes which are mature and not likely to change in the foreseeable future. The technical committee makes a conscious decision not to maintain the document any longer.
