outline
Outline
  • Engine Update
  • Literature Review
    • Published Reports of Similar Tests
  • Specific Gravity of ULSD for Genset Test
  • Nitrogen Generators
engine update
Engine Update
  • Exhaust Filter Plugged up
    • Waiting on replacement filter
    • Plugged up holes when not using smoke meter
  • Reinstall smoke meter piping
  • Move Thermocouple to after Smoke Meter to reduce Swirl
  • Possible installation of Thermocouple location before muffler for more accurate exhaust temperature reading
literature review for soot levels in lubricating oil
Literature Review for Soot Levels in Lubricating Oil
  • “Effect of diesel soot on lubricant oil viscosity” George, S et. al… WVU ME Dept 2006
    • Soot levels predetermined and set into 3 various categories 0%, 2%, 4%
    • Test samples conducted on Wells-Brookfield viscometer at 40C and 90C using an ounce of oil
    • Used various oils and soot was actually scraped off inner exhaust manifold and added to oil
    • Other Variants in oil kept constant throughout all the tests
literature review for soot levels in lubricating oil1
Literature Review for Soot Levels in Lubricating Oil
  • As soot viscosity was shown to increase thus accelerating the wear characteristics
  • Dispersants are added to counteract and keep soot suspended

nitrogen generators
Nitrogen Generators
  • Contacted two companies
  • PerkinElmer has Nitrogen generator specific for OES-ICP
    • Contacted left message for our product specialist
  • Maxigas Nitrogen Generators
    • Contacted and they are putting together an economic analysis comparison to our N2 tanks we are currently using
  • We need UHP Nitrogen i.e. 99.999% so can’t buy a typical generator ~ increased cost
future work
Future Work
  • Get Engine Running again
  • Develop Daily Procedure for Start Up / Shut Down and with Kapila
  • Measure Specific Gravity of S-8
  • Continue to find Literature on Soot Analysis
  • Purchase of Lab Gas Generators and Installation
