Trap Oxidizer Demonstration

A single flow, diesel-regenerated, ceramic-monolith filter equipped particulate trap was installed in one RTD bus in July, 1991. This bus experienced six failures and was replaced six times. Continuous efforts have been made to improve the trap performance. Four more traps will be installed in buses once the durability of the first trap system is proven in revenue service. Monthly reports are being prepared to analyze the trap performance and operating costs. Emission tests will be performed when the RTD sponsored high altitude lab is in operation late spring '92 to determine the effectiveness of the trap to reduce particulate emissions in diesel engines.
