Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee is a world leader in multiple areas of research including clean energy. Recently, the Fuels, Engines and Emissions Research Center at ORNL has participated in a Department of Energy initiative on low cost emissions control for advanced combustion engines. As part of this research, they have experienced success using the Equilibar back pressure regulator to maintain a continuous and precise flow rate to a catalyst reactor while alternating feeds between two separate gas feeds.
The Fuels, Engines and Emissions Research Center (FEERC) is a research facility at Oak Ridge National Laboratory that specializes in the detailed characterization of energy conversion technologies. Their comprehensive capabilities include:
- engine and vehicle dynamometers
- bench-top engine exhaust simulators
- unique diagnostic and measurement tools
- fuel cell characterization systems
