Abstract

The work described in this report involves the evaluation and further development of two complementary methods for the measurement of the emission rates of pollutants from machines.
For the Test Bench method, tests were successively carried out to investigate the parameters that affect the emission rates of particles from machines when the protocol in EN 1093-3 is followed. From the findings of the study, improvements to the protocol for EN1093-3 were proposed. The accuracy of the final protocol was established. For the Tracer Gas method, a draft protocol for measuring the emission rates of gaseous pollutants from machines was produced and the accuracy of the protocol established. The use of tracer particles to predict the emission rates of particles from machines was investigated and sufficient promise was shown to suggest further work should be carried out.
