Water Brake (Hydraulic) Dynamometers
For trucking, off-road, military and mining equipment, Taylor Dynamometer’s water brake (also known as hydraulic) dynamometer systems offer the rugged operation and accuracy you need to ensure success.
Ideal for a wide range of markets, this style of dynamometer churns water inside the housing and transfers energy by momentum exchange and water shear. Generally speaking, the more water flowing through the dyno, the greater the braking force exerted on the device under test.
- High power absorption
- Low inertia
- Unlimited continuous use
- No electrical requirements
