See the DYNOmite Tech-Talk article, on Water Tanks, for more about the basics of selecting water supply tanks and pumps - for engine or chassis dynamometer test cells.

The following graphs will help you determine if the absorber's load capacity vs. RPM curve is a suitable match for the engine to be tested.

Important: These maximum curves assume a full absorber. If you are running an inadequate water supply system, then you will not be able to reach these maximums.

"For better control, the engine being tested should not be at the extreme high or low range of the absorber's capacity."

Minimum Hp requirements for these absorbers is too low to bother charting. For example, our 5" absorber's combined bearing, seal, and windage drag (at 5,000 RPM) is only about 0.5 horsepower (climbing to just 2.5 Hp at 10,000 RPM). Note: The DYNOmite's integral torque arm fully captures this parasitic drag, so these do not represent un-measured power losses!
