Abstract

In order to achieve fast and accurate oil consumption measurements, a real-time sulfur tracing method was developed employing a quadrupole mass spectrometer to analyze the sulfur dioxide concentration in the exhaust stream. A sampling system was designed to measure the oil consumption of separate cylinder groups sequentially under identical running conditions. The developed method enables the comparison of oil consumption of separate cylinder groups without disturbing the engine's operation.
