Particulate Matter Generator for Use with an Emissions Control Device Aging System

Abstract: 

A particulate matter generator implemented as a "mini-burner", and used in conjunction with a larger test system for the specific purpose of enhancing the particulate matter content of exhaust gas. The exhaust stream of the larger system is supplemented with exhaust from the mini-burner to produce exhaust with desired particulate matter characteristics. The exhaust gas may then be used for various test purposes, such as testing emissions control devices.
