Development of a laboratory experiment involving the measurement of nitric oxide emissions
A Beckman non-dispersive infrared nitric oxide analyzer and a Teledyne oxygen analyzer are incorporated into a movable sampling system which includes a water vapor removal system. Instrument operating characteristics are reported. A laboratory experiment involving the measurement of nitric oxide emissions from a CFR single cylinder spark ignited internal combustion engine is presented. A description of the nitric oxide formation process and the effects of various engine operating parameters on nitric oxide emissions is included.
