Abstract

Using a small engine from a snow blower, we aimed to modify the engine to run off of ammonia as the fuel source. As a gaseous fuel, ammonia presents an additional challenge metering the air fuel mixture. Our team designed and began manufacturing a dual housing roots type positive displacement pump as a solution to the challenges we faced when using ammonia as a fuel.
