Engine Emissions and Particle Counting - Advanced Topics on Filter Testing
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) September 8, 2009
The American Filtration and Separations Society (AFS) is offering "Engine Emissions and Particle Counting - Advanced Topics on Filter Testing" training on Monday, October 5th at the Kensington Court Hotel in Ann Arbor, Michigan. This is one of several courses that kickoff the AFS 4th Biennial Emission Solutions Conference that runs through Thursday, October 8th at the Kensington Court Hotel in Ann Arbor.
Global emission regulations have forced changes in diesel engines and led to the development of new measurement and testing procedures, for exhaust emissions, crankcase emissions, and for the fuel system. The objective of this short course is to provide practical information on testing associated with emissions control. It covers both the measurement of combustion byproducts, e.g., exhaust and crankcase emissions, and with maintaining the integrity of the fuel injection system required to meet emission regulations.
The course will begin with an overview of engine emission testing, including performance, certification, and verification of crankcase ventilation and emission control subsystems. For each gaseous and PM component, its formation mechanism and environmental impaction will be discussed. Instrument, requirements, and operation of measuring these pollutants will be specified. Recent development on regulatory testing procedures for ultra-low emissions will be introduced.
This course will benefit those newer to the field by providing a basic understanding of engine emissions and particle counting. For those attending the 2009 AFS Emission Solutions Conference, this course will provide background understanding for the technical sessions. Those involved in the design, testing, and use of aftertreatment systems, as well as those engaged in contamination control and filter media should attend.
The course precedes the AFS 4th Biennial Emission Solutions Conference that runs through Thursday, October 8th at the Kensington Court Hotel in Ann Arbor.
