Apparatus and Method for Assisting Selective Catalytic Reduction

Abstract: 

The present invention relates to an apparatus and method for vaporizing a fluid to improve performance of a selective catalytic reduction catalyst. A vaporizer including a plurality of flow channels having an increased surface area may facilitate vaporization and mixing of the fluid in, e.g., an engine exhaust or gas containing nitrous oxides. The vaporizer may be located in an exhaust system downstream of a fluid injection site and upstream of a selective catalytic reduction catalyst. The exhaust discharged from the selective catalytic reduction catalyst may have a reduced concentration of nitrogen oxides.
