Abstract:

A marine engine exhaust emissions test cell for boat-size diesel engines approx. 200 hp and outboard engines was constructed as part of a project sponsored by the United States Coast Guard for the monitoring and control of emissions from marine sources. This report describes the salient features of the cell including its structural aspects and noise attenuating capabilities. The engine types to be tested are briefly outlined. The power train for testing outboard motors along with the instrumentation assembled for monitoring and controlling the various test engine operating parameters are discussed in detail. Techniques for handling the outboard engine-exhaust emission gas sample and the instrumentation for emission measurements are described.
