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

Sensor Box

Overview

The SuperFlow sensor box houses the data acquisition and control boards that makeup the 139 channel WinDyn data acquisition system. Its advanced electronics measures high-resolution data at up to 2,500 Hz depending on the channel and sends the data to the operator station via a simple Ethernet connection for live monitoring. The only connections between the test cell and operator control room are three Ethernet cables making installation simple.

The sensor box is modular and is expandable at any time. Eight expansion bays are ready to accept expansion panels for additional temperature, pressure, analog voltage or frequency inputs. Most SuperFlow engine dyno packages includes a ten channel pressure panel and a sixteen channel temperature panel and sensors as a starting point.

The included weather station uses a barometric pressure transducer, air temperature sensor and humidity sensor to measure atmospheric conditions continuously throughout the test and calculate the proper weather correction factor. Standards like STP, SAE, ECE and DIN are built in and user selectable, the configuration editor can also be used to write custom correction factors.

The sensor box also house the controllers that provide SuperFlow’s legendary closed loop PID control. Its flexible dual-mode control scheme allows either the dyno or the throttle to control to speed, torque, power, manifold pressure or any other channel of your choosing. Sophisticated logic lets each controller use up to four different control modes and parameter settings.
The sensor box can either be mounted to our test cell boom system or to the wall using the wall mount bracket.
