Status Update

March 30, 2020

The leadership team at SuperFlow realizes that we are facing a very unique situation with the COVID-19 virus. We want to reiterate that our focus is on our loyal Customers, our dedicated employees, and our communities at large.

The experts have painted a sobering picture for our nation. We are sure this is true for where ever you are located and reading this. We want to make it clear that SuperFlow is committed to “flattening the curve” and doing our part to overcome this global crisis.

With that said, our Colorado Springs office remains open in accordance with Colorado's 'Shelter in Place' orders. We will continue to do everything possible, within prevailing safe practices, to ensure our customers receive high-quality products and the level of technical service and support that they require.

Here are the steps we've taken to support our Customers, Employees and Communities during these times:

  • We moved about 90% of our Office, Sales and Service staff to remote working situations
  • The company has been divided into distinct groups to ensure business continuity
  • These groups are working out of self-contained areas and are divided by a 30-minute break between shifts to clean and sanitize our work spaces.
  • Financially, we have a company record backlog that we will continue to work on through August of this year. Leadtimes will continue to come down, quality will be a focus and capacity will open, especially for the 3rd and 4th quarters

Power Test, the parent company of SuperFlow, has been through three major economic dips in the last 19 years and keeps coming out stronger because we developed and executed our strategic and tactical plans. This situation will be no different. We thank you for choosing the Power Test family of brands: Super Flow, Pivotal Pumps, AIDCO, Stuska, Axiline, Hicklin, and TCRS. Please contact your Sales or Service representative if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Rick Ruzga
President

Control Console

Data Acquisition & Control

Jump to Section

Overview

The control console is the main interface between the operator and the entire engine test cell environment. Front and center on the console is a touch screen where operators select the type of test and enter parameters like starting and ending speeds. When the test is active on screen prompts guide the operator through the test.

Three manual control modes are available using the control know mounted in the console. This controller allows manual control to torque, RPM or percentage of load which keep operators in control during break in and warm up routines and when an automated test profile is not activated.

The engine control panel in the center of the console provides the operator with four relays to control ignition, fuel pump, starter and one auxiliary button commonly used for electric water pumps. Four more relays could be added to the console for additional control functionality.

Six rocker switches in both upper corners of the console are used to wire in test cell equipment like lights, pumps, fans and heaters so you never have to leave the console to start up or shut down the test cell. A 30ft. wiring harness with mating connector to the console and schematic is included to wire in your test cell equipment.

Lower right on the console is a keyed power switch to power off and lock-out the dynamometer at the end of a shift and the large E-stop button will shut down the entire operation in case of emergency.
