APPENDIX V-OXIDES OF NITROGEN ANALYTICAL
SYSTEM The chemiluminescence method utilizes the principle that nitric oxide (NO) reacts with ozone (03) to give nitrogen dioxide (NO,) and oxygen (0.). Approximately 10 percent of the NO, is electronically excited. The transition of excited NO, to the ground state yields a detectable light emission (590630 nanometer region) at low pressures. The intensity of this emission is proportional to the mass flow rate of NO into the reactor. The light emission can be measured utilizing a photomultiplier tube and associated electronics.
The method also utilizes the principle that the thermal decomposition of NO, (2NO, → 2NO+0,) is complete at about 600° C. The rate constant for the dissociation of NO, at 600° C. is approximately 108 (liters /molesecond). A 6-foot length of one-eighth inch outside diameter, 0.028 wall thickness, flawless stainless steel tubing resistance heated using a low voltage, high current power supply to a temperature of 650° C. (1200° F.) provides sufficient residence time at a sample flow rate of 700 cc. per minute (1.5 c.f.h.) for essentially complete conversion of nitrogen dioxide to nitric oxide. Other converter designs may be used if shown to yield essentially 100 percent conversion of NO, to NO.
The method permits continuous monitoring of NO, concentrations over a wide range, Response time (2 to 4 seconds is typical) is primarily dependent on the mechanical pumping rate at the operating pressure of the reactor. The operating pressure of the reactor is generally less than 5 torr.
The following figure is a flow schematic illustrating one configuration of the major components required for the oxides of nitrogen analytical system.
