Baumot BA-B Diesel Particulate Filter with Pre-Catalyst (ETV Mobile Source Emissions Control Devices) Verification Report
N/A, N. Baumot BA-B Diesel Particulate Filter with Pre-Catalyst (ETV Mobile Source Emissions Control Devices) Verification Report. US Environmental Protection Agency, Cincinnati, OH, 2012.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created the Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Program to facilitate the deployment of innovative or improved environmental technologies through performance verification and dissemination of information. The goal of the ETV Program is to further environmental protection by accelerating the acceptance and use of improved and cost-effective technologies. The ETV Program seeks to achieve this goal by providing high quality, peer-reviewed data on technology performance to those involved in the design, distribution, financing, permitting, purchase, and use of environmental technologies.
The Baumot BA-B Diesel Particulate Filter with Pre-Catalyst is a diesel engine retrofit device for light, medium, and heavy heavy-duty diesel on-highway engines for use with commercial ultra-low-sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuel. The BA-B particulate filter is composed of a pre-catalyst on a metal basis and wall-flow monolith, both of which are coated with a precious metal oxidation catalyst. The 1114 unit is the BA-B variant specifically designed for use with engines with output of approximately 214-335 horsepower and displacement up to 11 liters. This verification statement describes the performance of the tested technology and applies only to the use of the Baumot BA-B system on highway engines fueled by ULSD fuel. This mobile diesel engine air pollution control technology was tested October 2011 at Southwest Research Institute. The performance verified was the percentage of emissions reduction achieved by the technology for particulate matter (PM), nitrogen oxides (NOx), hydrocarbons (HC), and carbon monoxide (CO) relative to the performance of the same baseline engine without the technology in place. Operating conditions were documented, and ancillary performance measurements were also made. The APCT Center quality manager has reviewed the test results and quality control data and has concluded that the data quality objectives given in the generic verification protocol and test/QA plan have been attained.
