1500 BHP/3750 lb./ft.
The P4000 is a 1500 BHP - 3750 lb./ft uni-directional absorption
unit specifically designed for low speed, high torque diesel engines
presently being offered by all leading engine manufacturers. It
can be used directly attached to the engine bell housing utilising
the PIPER manufactured torsional damper assembly and SAE drive
plates, thus incurring minimum civil engineering costs, or in
the conventional floor mounted position. A double seal arrangement
allows extended no-load testing.
The P4000 can be supplied as a bi-directional low speed high
torque absorber. The torque absorption capability of this unit
is the same as that of the uni-directional unit and is especially
suitable if anti-clockwise marine engines are to be tested. Mechanical
specifications with respect to dimensions, materials and drive
arrangements are the same as for the standard P4000.
