English term or phrase: lean Nox trap
im Zusammenhang mit der Abgasnachbehandlung
ina
German translation:Lean-NOx-Katalysator
Explanation:

"LEAN"

AIR/FUEL RATIO

The relative proportions of air and fuel entering an engine's cylinders as produced by the carburetor or fuel injection system. The ideal or "stoichiometric" ratio for petrol is 14.7:1 air to fuel by weight. A higher ratio would contain more air and less fuel, and would be considered a "lean" mixture. A lower ratio with more fuel and less air would be a "rich" mixture. The air/fuel ratio is determined by the orifice size of the main jets inside a carburetor, the dwell duration of the mixture control solenoid inside a feedback carburetor, or the orifice opening and fuel pulse duration of a fuel injector.

"NOX"

OXIDES OF NITROGEN (NOX)

Harmful gaseous emissions of an engine composed of compounds of nitrogen and varying amounts of oxygen which are formed at the highest temperatures of combustion. With other gases and in the presence of sunlight, an ingredient of photochemical smog.
