Abstract:

Non-thermal plasmas NTPs represent a promising technology for the destruction of various toxic gases entrained in air streams. One challenging example of the need for hazardous gas control is the jet engine test cell JETC facility where very large amounts of NOxs are emitted along with various hydrocarbon gases on an episodic basis. The high flow rates as well as the wide dynamic range of pollutant concentrations make this a particularly difficult problem for emissions control. In order to investigate the ability of NTPs to dissociate NOxs, will be entrained in an airstream and passed through the reactor. We will measure the concentrations of various radicals produced in the reactor by the destruction of NOx. This data will be compared to results generated using a computational model of the reactor.
