Abstract

The concept of present study is to investigate effect of argon gas on performance and emission. Argon gas was supplied to engine with intake air by different rate, and performance and emission was experimentally investigated. The experiment was conducted at constant 1500 rpm with different load, with and without argon gas. The results revealed that great reduction in NOx emission was achieved at 11% of argon rate. Also CO emission was decreased with increase in argon rate and achieved optimum at 11% of argon rate. Performance was slightly improved at 9% of argon rate and sfc was decreased with increase in argon rate. It can be observed 9% of argon rate was found to be effective for NOx and CO emission reduction and improve performance at expense of HC emission. It was only suffered by HC emission, which was increases the increase in argon rate.
