Two-stroke lean burn natural gas engine oxidation catalyst degradation and regeneration via washing
Lean burn two stroke engines are used extensively for stationary applications including power generation, cogeneration and compression. Natural gas is abundant, relatively inexpensive, and combustion produces less CO2, particulate matter, and SOx than gasoline and diesel. However, the Natural gas industry continues to be impacted by increasingly stricter emissions limits. One approach to comply with these emission limits is outfitting engines with an oxidation catalyst. Oxidation catalysts are proven to reduce hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide emissions, but surface poisoning due to lube oil carry ...
