Abstract : A Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) exhaust emissions rake was tested in the Experimental Clean Combustor Program, Phase III to permit comparison of the values of gaseous emissions and smoke measured by the FAA rake with those measured with the NASA/P&WA rake used in the Phase III Experimental Clean Combustor Program and with station 7 probes. The results showed that the levels of CO, THC, NOx and smoke measured by the FAA and NASA/P&WA rakes agree well at high power, but that CO emissions measured by the FAA rake were approximately 10 percent higher than those measured by the NASA/P&WA rake at low power.
