Title 40: Protection of Environment
§90.304 Test equipment overview.
(a) All engines subject to this subpart are tested for exhaust emissions. Engines are operated on dynamometers meeting the specification given in §90.305.
(b) The exhaust is tested for gaseous emissions using a raw gas sampling system as described in §90.414 or a constant volume sampling (CVS) system as described in §90.421. Both systems require analyzers (see paragraph (c) of this section) specific to the pollutant being measured.
(c) Analyzers used are a non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) absorption type for carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide analysis; paramagnetic (PMD), zirconia (ZRDO), or electrochemical type (ECS) for oxygen analysis; a flame ionization (FID) or heated flame ionization (HFID) type for hydrocarbon analysis; and a chemiluminescent detector (CLD) or heated chemiluminescent detector (HCLD) for oxides of nitrogen analysis.
