Load Bank Testing Generators is Crucial

American Power Rental - Load bank rentals in Boston, MA

Loadbank testing of generators is a vital component of a regular maintenance plan. Generators are a key part of backup and supplemental power systems across various industries. Load banks are crucial because they are used to verify the power output of these generators.

Though generators are tested at the factory before being delivered, it is still very important to regularly test them on site through the process of load bank testing. Additionally, factors such as altitude and ambient temperature can affect generator performance resulting in problems related to fuel system contamination, cooling system degradation, and diesel engine wet stacking. It is through regular generator testing using the artificial load from the load bank rentals that the overall performance and condition can be determined.

Various options for load bank rentals in Boston, MA are available at American Power Rental which can aid companies in testing and commissioning generators and other power systems. This equipment ranges from 100kW to 5000kW and plays a crucial role in preventing costly power failures and shutdowns. Load bank rentals help ensure that backup generators are always in good condition and will instantly kick in when the power is knocked out.
