A comparative study of the number and mass of fine particles emitted with diesel fuel and marine gas oil (MGO)
Nabi, Md Nurun, Brown, Richard J., Ristovski, Zoran, & Hustad, Johan Einar (2012) A comparative study of the number and mass of fine particles emitted with diesel fuel and marine gas oil (MGO). Atmospheric Environment, 57, pp. 22-28.
The current investigation reports on diesel particulate matter emissions, with special interest in fine particles from the combustion of two base fuels. The base fuels selected were diesel fuel and marine gas oil (MGO). The experiments were conducted with a four-stroke, six-cylinder, direct injection diesel engine. The results showed that the fine particle number emissions measured by both SMPS and ELPI were higher with MGO compared to diesel fuel. It was observed that the fine particle number emissions with the two base fuels were quantitatively different but qualitatively similar. The gravimetric (mass basis) measurement also showed higher total particulate matter (TPM) emissions with the MGO. The smoke emissions, which were part of TPM, were also higher for the MGO. No significant changes in the mass flow rate of fuel and the brake-specific fuel consumption (BSFC) were observed between the two base fuels.
