  • The Hydraulic Water Brake Dyno

    A hydraulic dynamometer is a type of dynamometer that uses hydraulic power to test the engine of a machine. Many hydraulic dynamometers work in conjunction with other testing processes, such as the water brake dynamometer. The hydraulic part of the dyno machine applies the necessary load on the engine that helps create a true horsepower reading, and the water brake part of the dyno machine actually measures the horsepower of the engine. A water brake dynamometer is a special kind of dyno machine that records the horsepower of the machine...

  • Types of Dynamometers

    A dynamometer is a useful piece of equipment that can measure dynamic mechanical power created by machines, such as vehicles, airplanes, and brakes. Medical dynamometers help medical professionals determine the grip of a patient to help diagnose potential problems. The first dynamometer was created by Charles Babbage in 1838 to measure the mechanical power of a train. Dynamometers are used in many different industries and ways and there are several different types of dynamometers in common use today. Chassis dynamometers: The chassis dyno consists of a large test cell. The...

  • Help with Finding a Used Dynomometer

    Engine dynomometers provide many benefits for professional racers and hobby racers. If you build your own vehicles as a job or hobby, a dyno machine can also provide benefits and diagnostics on the vehicle, such as the top speed, brake capabilities, performance under different road and weather conditions, and more. However, the cost of a new dyno machine is often beyond the reach of a normal person's budget. A full-priced machine can cost thousands of dollars. You can save a bundle by purchasing a used engine dynomometer for much less....

Industry Information

Dynomometer

Dynomometers are used to determine the torque and rotations per minute of an engine. They are widely used for automotive applications and are also called dynos, dynometers or dynamometers. Dynomometers test the performance of an engine by letting it run for long intervals at high speeds; however, the vehicle does not move and can be operated by a computer system.

Some dynomometers are constructed of a frame that holds the vehicle above engine mounts, an absorption unit like a rolling cylinder, a heat exchanger and a torque measuring device. Some models require hydraulic fluid, water or oil to operate. Modern dynomometers are computer controlled and are able to graph the capabilities and horsepower output of the engine in terms of the torque capacity, the maximum power absorption and the maximum rotary speed. There are also additional features that are able to provide an analysis of emissions and reaction time. Interface options include a control console, a computer or a remote control. Dynomometers are used to measure the torque and RPMs for chain or belt drives, gearboxes, fluid power systems, gas or diesel systems, transmissions, turbines and other applications. They are predominantly found in the automotive industry but are used for aircraft, aerospace, marine and industrial processes where engines and motors are critical.


Chassis and engine dynomometers are the two main kinds of this machine. The difference is that chassis dynos measure an engine's output through the wheels of the vehicle, whereas engine dynos take readings directly from the engine itself. For chassis dynomometers, the vehicle is placed on the frame and lowered onto the rollers. It is strapped into place and a computer starts the ignition through a spark plug. The wheels turn the absorption unit, which absorbs the energy; they are usually large metal cylinders. The computer measures how quickly the cylinders rotate and, along with factoring in the weight of the cylinders, determines the torque. The reading is often 15% to 20% lower than a reading taken by an engine dynomometer because the energy experiences losses due to friction throughout the drive train. Engine dynos take measurements straight from an engine, which makes them more accurate. The torque measuring device is connected to the crankshaft or flywheel; a liquid may be used to provide resistance and cooling for the engine. These machines are used frequently to test new engines that have not yet been installed in a vehicle or to examine an engine that is being rebuilt. Since the reading is taken directly from the engine and does not include any power loss from the drive train, the measurement may be referred to as engine horsepower.
