SuperFlow has spent the last 40 years producing remanufacturing and test equipment for vehicle drivelines, with their products being utilized across various industries from the more obvious race shops and race teams, to even universities and the military. You may have even seen our previous article on our own in-house SF-750 flowbench. With such reliable and long lasting equipment (on the scale of decades), the company’s main goal isn’t sales but rather building long-term customer relationships.
While at PRI 2016, we stopped by SuperFlow’s booth and caught up with the company’s own Mark Giles to find out what new products they developed for the industry, and we weren’t disappointed.
WinDyn 4.0Currently in the beta testing phase, with a projected release for Q1 2017, is SuperFlow’s newest version of their industry leading WinDyn data acquisition and control software for previous generation, current and even other manufacturers eddy current, water brake or AC dynamometers; allowing any shop owner to bring even some of the oldest dynos into the 21st century.
Powermark And Black Widow Dynamometer Hardware
Since the team at SuperFlow is always looking to stay ahead of the industry to make sure that their products are compatible with as many applications as possible, one new piece of hardware that Giles was eager to show off was the new torsionally compliant driveshaft for the Powermark and Black Widow driveshaft-driven dynos; producing a much cleaner torque signal to the load cell for improved accuracy and noise reduction.
For systems like the company’s 902 dyno, that does not include a starter, they have developed the billet housing SuperStart 2 starter. The system even includes a rear mounted pump drive for applications like cam-driven fuel pumps for sprint cars or late model oil pumps.
