Two distinctly different types of instrumentation are widely used to measure automotive exhaust emissions of the oxides of nitrogen (NO and NO2). Until quite recently, virtually all such measurements were made using non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) analyzers for NO and non-dispersive ultraviolet (NDUV) analyzers for NO2. The use of chemiluminescence (CL) analyzers has recently gained wide acceptance for the measurement of both NO and NO2. This report describes an experimental study which was undertaken to describe differences between CL and NDIR/NDUV measurements, as applied to dilute samples of automotive exhaust gas.
