ENGINE DYNAMOMETER TESTING
(Dyno Room)

The function of an engine dynamometer is to absorb and apply a variable load to an engine. The absorbed load is measured and recorded in conjunction with the engine operating parameters.

With our dynamometer data acquisition software, we are able to monitor and record a multitude of engine performance parameters for both electronic and non-electronic engines.

Our Computerized Electronic Data Acquisition System has improved our customer satisfaction by diagnosing tough problems quickly and tuning their engines back to their factory specifications.

Not only can we measure factors such as RPM, torque and power at 200 readings per second, we can also measure multiple pressures for oil, airbox, fuel and boost.  All these measurements can be recorded for a complete data log for a set of dynamometer runs.

Torque and power readings can be set as observed, or can be automatically corrected to SAE, DIN, JIS or, ECE.

As an example, we can install an ‘automatic limit protection’, in case the exhaust temperature goes too high.

Multiple temperature readings can also be taken for ambient air, exhaust, intercooler, water and oil.

All this is just a fraction of our engine dynamometer test cell capabilities.

Some of the benefits of dynamometer testing your engine include:

  • Reducing your maintenance costs by checking all your engine components. The disturbance of some parts can be minimized with the right tuning.
  • Increase fuel economy - engine balancing can be achieved and maintained, resulting in efficiency and consequential fuel saving
  • Reducing emissions through combustion optimization
Diesel engine exhaust gas contains many constituents that are considered harmful to people. Diesel engine exhaust emissions are a mixture of gases, vapours, liquid aerosols and substances made up of particles. They contain the products of:

  • Carbon (soot)
  • Nitrogen
  • Water
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Aldehydes
  • Nitrogen dioxide
  • Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon
Smoke is the product of combustion and its colour may indicate engine problems:

  • Blue smoke  indicates oil and unburnt fuel (poorly serviced and tuned engine)
  • Black smoke  indicates soot, oil and unburnt fuel (mechanical fault with engine)
  • White smoke indicates water droplets and unburnt fuel (from a cold engine; they may disappear when the engine warms up)

We can take an appropriate course of action to correct any of these problems.
