Abstract:

A RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM IS PROPOSED WHICH WILL DETERMINE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF AN INSTRUMENT DESIGNED TO PROVIDE THE CAPABILITY OF MEASURING THE CONCENTRATION OF OXY AND PEROXY FREE RADICALS IN COMBUSTION STUDIES. THE DETECTOR FOR THE INSTRUMENT IS BASED ON AN AMBIENT FREE RADICAL DETECTOR WHICH USES AN AMPLIFICATION CHAIN REACTION BETWEEN THE FREE RADICALS AND CO AND NO WHICHRESULTS IN THE PRODUCTION OF NO2 WHICH IS DETECTED BY CHEMILUMINESCENT MEASUREMENT. THE DETECTOR WILL BE INTERFACED WITH A TWO STAGE DILUTION SYSTEM TO CONDITION THEGAS STREAM UPSTREAM OF THE DETECTOR. THE DILUTOR WILL USE COMPRESSED GAS FLOWING THROUGH ASPIRATORS TO WITHDRAW AND DILUTE SAMPLE GAS FLOWING THROUGH A CRITICAL ORIFICE: DILUTION RATIOS UP TO 10,000 TO 1 WILL BE PROVIDED TO COOL THE GAS AND REDUCE THE FREE RADICAL CONCENTRATION TO A LEVELACCEPTABLE TO THE DETECTOR. THE ENTIRE SYSTEM WILL BE EVALUATED IN A LABORATORY STUDY EMPLOYING A WELL CHARACTERIZED FLAME.
