New hydraulic test center developed by Taylor Dynamometer

LinkedIn +

After three years in development, Taylor Dynamometer has launched its new, state-of-the-art, Hydraulic Test Center (HTC).

This system is designed for testing heavy-duty, mobile equipment such as dozers, trucks, mining equipment, skid steers and excavators. The HTC supports testing of transmissions, hydraulic motors and cylinders, valve blocks, torque converters and open and closed loop pumps.

It provides safe, efficient performance and consistent solutions for all powertrain testing needs, such as effortless contamination control to ISO 16/13/11 (per Cyclic Stabilization Test SAE ARP4205). It offers remote monitoring, so the operator can be completely removed from the test environment. The dynamometer mode enables testing of a motor as a motor (not a pump). All ratings are continuous duty, not intermittent. It is also equipped with the latest in data acquisition and control system technology, DynPro2.

In an effort to accommodate various customer testing requirements, Taylor offers both a transmission bench and a complete bench. The transmission bench is designed to test a variety of heavy-duty, off-highway hydraulic components.
