In-House Dyno Enhances Marine Exhaust Systems' Services

(Press Release)
Wednesday, June 27, 2012

Measuring how an exhaust system performs before it's installed helps ensure optimal results will be achieved. 

Using its in-house dynamometer and test engines, Marine Exhaust Systems works closely with customers to create the best solution for their application. "We deliver a complete package that's designed specifically for the customer's boat, engine and application.  No one else offers this level of testing and development, actively measuring performance with engines prior to installation, that we're aware of," said Darrin Woods, Marine Exhaust Systems vice president.


The company began dyno testing years ago with a CAT 3126 425 hp engine, popular among its customers.  Marine Exhaust Systems has since acquired four other engines to expand its development and testing services for larger pleasurecraft and commercial vessels.  The most recent addition to the facility is a CAT C-18 1,150 hp engine. As marine engines have become more powerful and sophisticated, the company has optimized its muffler products to abate noise and enhance performance.  Marine Exhaust certifies systems for backpressure requirements, noise levels and water pressure.  The company can also modify and customize standard components for unique applications.

"We analyze important facets our competitors don't," said Woods.  "We match out and balance the complete system, to identify potential issues ranging from high water pressure and pump failures to high backpressure levels." Among other services Marine Exhaust offers is the ability to certify a Zeus system with the QSC series Cummins engine.  They also conduct sprayhead water coolant testing with the dyno. "We are a one-stop-shop," said Woods, "rather than having to source components from multiple suppliers, we offer all the exhaust pipe, hose connections and clamps, mufflers, fiberglass components and hull penetrations.  Drawing from our industry experience, we provide full technical support throughout the process."
