Abstract The report gives results of a laboratory study of two residential oil-fired heating units, a warm-air furnance and a boiler. Bacharach smoke and filterable particulate emissions were measured at several excess-air levels for both cyclic and steady-state runs. Particle-size distributions were also measured during boiler runs to determine if particle-size variations might help explain the lack of correlation between earlier smoke and particulate emission field measurements.

Contents Notes The report gives results of a laboratory study of two residential oil-fired heating unites, a warm-air furnace and a boiler. Bacharach smoke and filterable particulate emissions were measured at several excess-air levels for both cyclic and steady-state runs. Particle-size distributions were also measured during boiler runs to determine if particle-size variations might help explain the lack of correlation between earlier smoke and particulate emission field measurements. One unit produced essentially no excessive smoke or particulate on startup; 1 minute after startup, smoke was equal to steady-state smoke; and particulate emissions for cyclic and steady-state firing were equal. The second unit produced a startup smoke higher than its steady-state smoke, and higher particulate emissions for cyclic runs than for steady-state runs, suggesting that this unit had a significant "on puff" on startup. Particulate emissions varied with excess air in the same pattern as smoke number, higher at low excess air levels for both units. Correlations between smoke and particulate emissions appeared practical for individual units firing at specific operating conditions. However, a general correlation between smoke and filterable particulate emissions does not appear to exist for cyclic operation. For the two units, particle-size distributions were nearly identical for all runs and indicated that over 80 percent of the particles were below 1.0 micron.
