Engine Dyno Chassis Fabrication

Design, fabrication, electrical and plumbing work continues as the team moves quickly toward installing the new AVL dynamometer in Dyno Cell No. 1. 

The dyno chassis and engine stand will allow the dyno operator to wheel an engine up to the new AVL absorber. The in-house designed engine carts will self-align with the dyno chassis. With minimal effort, the operator will connect a few coolant and air lines and be ready to run the engine. There are three such setups at Banks Tech running around the clock testing military-spec Banks D866T turbo diesel engines.
