Abstract : The measurement of NO and NO2 was studied in a premixed opposed jet stabilized flame and in a simple turbulent diffusion flame using propane and air in both cases. Cooled and uncooled quartz and stainless steel gas sampling probes, with tips designed to provide aerodynamic quenching, were used and compared. Concentration measurements were made with a chemiluminescent nitric oxide detector modified for the additional measurement of total NO(x). (Modified author abstract)
