Flow Pro Expander for Flow Com and SF1020


We are in the final stages of developing a new product that adds new capabilities to Superflow's Flow Com™ (and the SF1020 flowbench which has a built-in Flow Com).  Superflow's Flow Com is similar to Flow Pro hardware, but it lacks support for a digital dial indicator and automatic valve opener, and it's support for a foot switch is sluggish because it's data rate is slow.  Flow Pro Expander adds to Flow Com a responsive foot switch and support for a digital dial indicator and automatic valve opener.  Installation is easy - just plug Flow Com into Expander and plug Expander into your computer.  

Flow Pro Expander (foot switch included) is $320.  Digital Dial Indicator is $295.  Automatic Valve Opener is $400.  Flow Pro software is $260.

New Trade Show

We will be at the RPM trade show, August 30 -September 1 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Tumble Meter

Tumble and swirl are both motions of the intake charge in the cylinder. Swirl is similar to the spinning action of water going down a drain. Tumble is a rolling action. It is oriented 90 degrees to swirl and measuring it requires a different meter. Swirl is usually found in 2 valve heads, but not found in 4 valve heads. In 4 valve heads the swirl induced by one intake valve is canceled by the opposite swirl induced by the other intake valve. In some applications it might be helpful to measure both swirl and tumble. The Audie Technology tumble meter uses a standard technique to convert the tumble’s rolling motion into a motion that is similar to swirl moving sideways. Our tumble meter has two sideways-mounted pickups that are similar to our swirl meter paddle pickup. Two pickups (some meters only have one) let us detect tumble on two sides at the same time and keep the meter from producing an asymmetrical imbalance. 

John Aller Beefs Up Sales and Tech Support

John is already familiar to many Audie Tech customers  because he has been helping us in our booth at the PRI show for many years.  When major surgery sidelined Audie in early 2005, John stepped up to help us with sales and tech support.  It worked out so well that we have made the arrangement permanent.  A new phone system has been installed so that when you can call us you can choose to speak with John in Ohio or Audie in Pennsylvania.  Isn't technology amazing!

John is an engine builder with experience in a wide variety of engines.  He owns one the first Flow Quiks, has built his own flowbench (fully outfitted with Flow Pro), and has used Dynomation to design and build engines that did quite well.  John says that every odd engine from 5 HP Briggs to 12 cylinder Jaguars has made its way to his shop at one time or another.  His broad hands-on experience is a great supplement to Audie's computer geek perspective.
