Product Announcement from The Kahn Companies
Specializing exclusively in hydraulic dynamometers and associated equipment, Kahn Industries pioneered the design concept of the portable, flange-mounted dynamometer over thirty years ago. Since then, significant advances have been continuously incorporated, particularly in the areas of higher operating speeds, easier-to-use designs, improved materials, and increasingly sophisticated computer-interfaced, closed-loop dynamometer controls. The result has been a widely acknowledged leadership in product performance and reliability. With designs capable of absorbing up to 75,000 kW (100,000 hp) and operating at speeds up to 100,000 rpm, Kahn hydraulic dynamometers are now at work in engine test facilities around the globe.
With a product line of over 50 standard dynamometer models and a large number of special purpose designs, Kahn Industries is the only American-owned manufacturer producing a complete offering of dynamometers to measure and absorb the power output of virtually any prime mover. All Kahn dynamometers are inherently bi-directional and therefore do not require repositioning to switch the direction of rotation.
