Title Improved ice arena air quality with the use of a three-way catalytic converter and fuel management system
Bibliographic information Aug. 1997, Vol.58, No.8, p.608-612. 24 ref.
Abstract Nitrogen dioxide concentrations in an ice arena were evaluated before and after a three-way catalytic converter and fuel management system were retrofitted to a 7-year old ice resurfacing machine. Air sampling indicated an 87% reduction in airborne nitrogen dioxide concentrations after the retrofit. Carbon monoxide levels were also reduced by 57%. It is recommended that this option be used in conjunction with other measures to minimize indoor air concentrations of combustion exhaust gases.
