Lube-Tech is a worldwide leader in the development of high-performance lubricants for the marine, powersports and outdoor power equipment industries. For 20 years Lube-Tech has also operated an engine testing facility called Test Tech. In 2018, Test Tech renovated a building near their corporate offices into a dedicated, state-of-the-art engine and fluids testing facility. Lube-Tech contacted O’Neill Engineered Systems, Inc. to provide a proposal to design/build a modular, four-cell engine test chamber.
Each cell required a combination of a significant noise reduction, plus a high degree of access, visibility and ventilation. O’Neill Engineered Systems, Inc., in partnership with IAC Acoustics, worked closely with Lube-Tech’s Engineering Manager, Denny Swanson, to meet the many competing requirements of this type of facility. IAC’s wide acoustic product offering included:
High STC Sound Control Doors
High STC sound Control Windows
High STC Enclosure Panels
High Insertion Loss Sound Attenuators & Plenums
O’Neill Engineered Systems’ extensive experience with Dyno Rooms enabled it to provide Lube-Tech with custom-designed test cells specifically aimed at developing high performance lubricants for the engines of the 21st century.
