Load Bank Testing Helps Determine The Reliability of Standby Generators During Downtime - MA, RI, CT, ME, NH, VT

26 May 2016 Bookmark and Share

The main job of generators is to provide back-up power in emergency situations such as when there is a technical difficulty in the main grid or a scheduled maintenance. But these situations rarely occur making the generators use seldom. When they do not perform to required horsepower after extended lack of use, generators tend to develop wet stacking or other issues that adversely affect performance during downtime. In order to prevent that, testing and commissioning is done using load bank rentals in Hartford, CT.

Load banks provide an artificial load for testing and commissioning mission-critical equipment such as generators. Load bank testing helps determine whether standby generators will function as expected when the time comes for a back-up source of power.

These load banks for rent provide peace of mind that the standby generator will kick in at a moment’s notice. They provide a dummy load that allow them to run at maximum horsepower so they remain reliable in the event of a power failure. Load banks also contribute in preventing wet stacking in generators that can develop when generators are under-run.
