Load Stand (Air-Cooled, Eddy Current)
The Air-Cooled, Eddy Current Load Stand allows for the output of Transmissions, Torque Converters, Torque Converter/Transmission Combinations and Hydraulic Motors to be loaded onto the Hydraulic Test Center.
See more information below (or download the pdf) on the specific component under test.
Air-Cooled, Eddy Current Load Stand:
- Transmissions – while shifting, the eddy current loading function can load the output shaft as opposed to an unloaded shaft. This simulates more closely the actual condition as if installed in a machine.
- Torque Converters – before spinning, the stall brake is applied then the stall torque can be measured as the input shaft speed is increased.
- Torque Converter/Transmission Combinations – refer to the definitions above for tests that can be performed.
- Hydraulic Motors – while motor is spinning, the eddy current loading function can load the motor. Before spinning, the stall brake is applied and the stall torque can be measured while pressurizing the motor.
The Load Stand is vertically adjustable, travels in and out in relation to the driveline on the worktable and stores out of the way, on the extension table, when not in use. The eddy current loading function can be applied at any rpm. The stall brake is a static brake designed to be applied at zero RPM. Download the pdf below to learn more.
