Adpower / Overseas Activities 3 (Mongolia)
How are you all doing? This time is Mongolia, the third introduction of Adpower's contribution overseas.
Speaking of Mongolia, it is an image of a very brave people, such as the conquest of the Eurasian continent of Genghis Khan and the Mongol invasion.
However, I think there are surprisingly few people who have actually been to Mongolia. I also visited for the first time last year.
A direct flight from Mongolia departs from Narita and arrives at Chinggis Khaan International Airport in the capital Ulaanbaatar in just over five hours. Recently, Japanese companies have also entered the market, and the hotel stayed at the familiar Toyoko Inn Ulaanbaatar.
Mr. Bat, the representative of the Adpower distributor company, and Mr. Pagmaa, the wife and deputy representative, arranged this visit for the purpose of reducing the exhaust gas (PM2.5) of the Ulaanbaatar municipal bus company.
The top photo shows the actual measurement of black smoke concentration on a bus.
AdPower suppresses static electricity in the engine air cleaner (intake), increases the air flow rate to the engine combustion chamber by about 5 to 10%, and improves combustion efficiency. Since the combustion is improved, not only the PM2.5 in question can be reduced, but also the output (horsepower / torque) and fuel efficiency can be expected to be improved. In fact, the local bus drivers said, "The start is better" and "The engine noise is quieter."
In the black smoke measurement test in the field, PM2.5 was reduced by 40% or more, depending on the condition of each measurement vehicle.
Until now, it was common sense to collect exhaust gas after combustion with a DPF (diesel particulate filter) as shown in the above figure.
Of course, it is an indispensable part because it can collect nearly 100% of PM2.5 etc.
However, in emerging countries such as Mongolia, unfortunately, the quality of fuel such as diesel is inferior to that of developed countries, and the vehicles used are aged vehicles of 10 years or more, some of which are 30 to 30 to Vehicles that are 40 years old are still running.
Therefore, even if the DPF is installed, it uses diesel with a high sulfur content, which causes clogging of the DPF, and even if daily cleaning is performed, the clogging cannot be completely removed, resulting in a power down of the vehicle.
For example, in Mongolia, it seems that there are problems with the operation of buses.
And AdPower was adopted at the Ulaanbaatar Municipal Bus Company to reduce emissions (PM2.5).
And I will introduce the local meals. Exactly "meat! "was. It's a popular restaurant with locals, probably with few foreigners and crowded with locals. (November 2019 at that time) Volume of lamb and beef! The white one is like a seasoned dumpling skin, and there is a coleslaw in the middle, but it was delicious, but the amount was too large to finish, so I took it back to the hotel. Is it because of the history of the horse race and its eating habits that the people of Mongolia are powerful?
It is a long-established department store. It says 1924 in the upper left, so it was probably founded in 1924. I also bought souvenirs here.
Now, with covid-19, online meetings have become mainstream in an environment where it is difficult to travel abroad. However, it is also important to directly touch the local situation and meet in person to feel the atmosphere of the other party. The good thing about business trips is that you can enjoy delicious local meals after work, but for the time being, business trips are still difficult. I want to end it soon.
