are proud to announce that we now have a new in-house
dyno service! We use the Super Flow SF-901
dynamometer for accurate horsepower and torque ratings.
Available for horsepower/torque figures, engine break in
procedures and tuning. Call or email
for pricing for your needs.
IS A DYNAMOMETER?
Engine development work is
possible with the engine installed in a vehicle but is
typically more convenient and accurate with the engine
installed on a test system. Such a test system, when
capable of loading the engine as if it were being run
installed in a driving vehicle, is called an engine
engine dynamometer usually measures power at the
flywheel of the engine for highest accuracy: no
transmission or driveline losses influence the results.
It is possible to have very good control over all test
parameters and test conditions for best repeatability.
Access to the engine for the installation of sensors or
for adjustment and changes is easy.
Engine development on an engine
dynamometer however requires removing the engine from
the vehicle which also means having to add all auxiliary
systems to support engine operation: fuel supply,
electrical supply, exhaust extraction, air flow for
cooling and for combustion air, coolant temperature
control, throttle actuationů This results in a
requirement for an engine test cell, which provides all
Engine dynamometers are
typically used for:
all tests requiring
accurate measurement of engine output (such as Net
