Abstract

The U. S. Bureau of Mines has sponsored research to determine the particle size distribution and concentration of submicron particles upstream and downstream of a ceramic particle trap mounted in the exhaust stream of a Caterpillar 3304 diesel engine. Particle size distribution and mass were measured with an electrical aerosol analyzer, a diffusion battery-condensation nuclei counter combination, and filters. The engine was operated at 1400 and 1800 RPM and 3 load conditions at each speed. In general, the collection efficiency of the trap was high, ranging between 89 and 96%.
