Donaldson Co., Inc., Series 6100 Diesel Oxidation Catalyst Muffler
This report reviews the performance of the Donaldson Company, Inc. Diesel Oxidation Catalyst Muffler (Series 6100 Catalyst Formulation). Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) testing of this technology was conducted during a series of tests in November 2002 by Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) under contract with the Air Pollution Control Technology Verification Center (APCTVC). This report addresses one of the three baseline-control device configurations covered by this test series. The objective of the APCTVC and the ETV Program is to verify, with high data quality, the performance of air pollution control technologies. Control of air emissions from diesel engines is within the scope of the APCTVC. An APCTVC program area was designed by Research Triangle Institute (RTI) and a technical panel of experts to evaluate the performance of diesel exhaust catalysts, particulate filters, and engine modification control technologies for mobile diesel engines. Based on the activities of this technical panel, the Generic Verification Protocol for Diesel Exhaust Catalysts, Particulate Filters, and Engine Modification Control Technologies for Highway and Nonroad Use Diesel Engines (RTI, 2002)1 was developed. The specific test/quality assurance plan addendum for the ETV test of the technology submitted by Donaldson Company, Inc. was developed and approved on October 3, 2002.2 The goal of the test was to measure the emissions control performance of the technology systems and their emissions reductions relative to an uncontrolled engine.
