A non thermal plasma reactor for treating gases. The reactor has a tubelike housing, which contains four concentric channels. A central channel is a gas inlet channel. Two inner channels are a non thermal plasma reactor channel and a catalytic channel. The outer channel is a gas outlet channel.

A burner-based system for producing exhaust that simulates the exhaust produced by a production type internal combustion engine. The system is computer controlled so that parameters such as the composition of the exhaust, its rate of flow, and its temperature can be specified. This permits various engine operating conditions to be simulated. An emissions control device can be installed to receive the exhaust, and to thereby undergo rigorous testing. Various tests for durability can be performed.

A method for simulating at least one drive cycle of a vehicle using a non-engine based test system, the method including providing a non-engine based test system including a combustor in fluid communication with a catalytic converter from the vehicle; supplying fuel and air to said combustor at an air to fuel ratio (AFR) and under conditions effective to produce a feedstream flowpath; substantially stoichiometrically combusting at least a portion of the fuel in the feedstream flowpath under conditions effective to simulate at least one drive cycle of the vehicle and to produce a simulated drive cycle exhaust product for the vehicle, the conditions being effective to prevent substantial damage to the combustor; and, collecting and analyzing the simulated drive cycle exhaust product.
Apparatus including a housing defining an interior, a cutting board movable between a first position within the interior and a second position projecting outwardly from the housing, and transport means for selectively moving the cutting board between the first and second positions.
There is disclosed a fabric wall panel consisting of a frame formed from linear frame members with a flat insert within the frame and fabric stretched over the frame and glued on the back. The linear frame members have an inside tongue for fastening the frame to a wall and an outside raised channel of three profiles, square, triangle, and quarter round.
