Engine Test Area
At South Coast Diesels all engine overhauls and major repairs are stringently tested to the highest standards. Our test facilities include both a DPY-5 and a DPX-3 dynamometer that have the capacity to test up to 1100BHP and 250BHP respectively.
All engines tested are monitored via a specialist data acquisition system, recording all pressures, temperatures and loads. Encompassing all values the data acquisition equipment provides printouts at various loads showing power curves, this guarantees the advertised rated power output and calibration of the engines fuel management system.
