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

Eddy Current

Engine Dynamometers

Jump to Section

Overview

SuperFlow offers a broad selection of technologically advanced eddy current absorbers which are ideal for precise engine testing. Low minimum load capabilities allow testing of very small engines, or larger engines running at very light loads and high speeds. Heat is dissipated by cooling water flowing through the stationary portion of the absorber. Rotating water seals have been eliminated. Bearings are pre-lubricated and rated for 5,000 hours of operation between servicing. Standard commercial load cells measure reaction torque for either direction of rotation. The double-ended main shaft may be fitted with a starter motor or used for dual engine connection. Speed is measured by a 60-tooth gear and hall effect sensor.

All SuperFlow dry gap eddy current absorbers can be interfaced with SuperFlow data acquisition and control systems for complete engine, dynamometer and throttle control. These systems integrate with personal computers running SuperFlow’s WinDyn software for expanded data storage and manipulation. SuperFlow offers complete turn-key system solutions with engine cooling heat exchangers, a variety of fuel systems, temperature and pressure sensors. Engine carts and dynamometer docking bases are optional. Power Absorbers are available in a wide range of torque and speed specifications. Please review the absorber models below and ask your Sales Engineer to to help you select the best absorber and design a complete dynamometer solution for your application.

SuperFlow can provide complete turn-key eddy current dynamometers, mechanical only systems or absorbers. Contact us today to discuss your project.
