The performance of the engine on your earthmoving equipment has a lot more to do with it than just power. An optimally working engine will ensure the reliability of your tasks by minimising downtime. It will play a role in ensuring the safety of its operators and will also save your business a ton of money in the long-run, since there will be less of a need for expensive replacements and repairs. While dynamometer testing is an essential task to be conducted regularly, there are some times when it is more crucial to conduct it than others. Find out more about these points here.
Breaking in Your Engine
Before your engine is first used, it needs to be broken in with care, and for this reason, dynamometer testing is generally the first thing you ought to do on a new engine. This way, breaking your engine in can be done under controlled conditions, and will allow you to inspect each and every aspect of the engine before it is put to work.
Monitoring the Temperature of Exhaust Fumes
With the right information surrounding emissions, jetting size, spacers and fuel distribution, you can get a much better feel for the condition of your engine, how much longer it is due to last, and what impact your activities are having on the environment. Dynamometer testing allows you to take readings on exhaust temperatures which can supply you with this information, so that you can take more targeted care of the engine.
One of the most important reasons why you need to conduct dynamometer testing on earthmoving equipment is to ensure their reliability. Downtime can put your business in an unpleasant situation, costing you plenty of money and maybe even losing you a contract. With frequent dynamometer testing, you will be able to keep closer tabs on your maintenance and repair schedule in order to minimise downtime.
