The Dyno Cell is where the rubber meets the road here at Achates Power. It’s where we test the concepts and designs developed for the rest of the company. So, if someone from the Performance and Emissions Department requests us to test a set of pistons, we can test them right here in our Dyno Cell for fuel efficiency as well as oil consumption numbers.

Achates Power has a state-of-the-art facility with equipment such as the Da Vinci oil consumption measurement device, the California Analytical Instruments bench for emissions such as CO and NOx as well as the Dekati mass monitor for real-time sub-measurement.

Working at Achates Power affords us the opportunity to test new concepts in engine designs in a unique way. I’m sure it will be successful in the engine industry for years to come.
