Abstract:
Oxygen-enriched air supplied to a diesel engine has significant benefits in reducing the particulate emissions of all fuels tested. A Caterpillar 3208 direct injection diesel engine was modified to operate on a wide range of fuel grades including residual fuel oils with oxygen-enriched intake air. The paper focuses on four fuels, two fuels were regular automotive distillate fuels, the third was a low emission diesel fuel and the fourth fuel had high boiling point fractions. Comparison with less extensive work on residual fuel oil is also included. Smoke and particulates decrease by up to 94% at full load with 27% oxygen concentration. Performance with oxygen addition using regular fuels showed comparable smoke and particulates to a premium priced low emission fuel used specifically in underground mines.
