Emission Control of Engines Using Limestone and Water Mixture
Diesel power inevitably finds a very important role in the development of the plant’s economy and technical growth. In spite of their high thermal efficiency, one cannot ignore the fact about the effect of their exhaust, in the atmosphere. Due to high cost of petrol, diesel engines are more in use. Anticipating the use of diesel engines, even more in the near future; this system developed can be used to control the toxic gases, coming out of the diesel engines. Objective of this project is to design & fabricate a system, where the toxic levels are controlled through chemical reaction to more agreeable level. This system is made as an alternative arrangement for the catalytic converter. The whole assembly is fitted in the exhaust pipe. In this project we have made a emission test with the composition of oil, water and an alkali solution. The system we have designed is just a prototype which can further made to be a working model depending upon the vehicle criteria. Since this makes the system to be very cost effective and more economical.
