Load Bank Rentals Accurately Mimic Operational Load when Testing Generator Sets - MA, RI, CT, ME, NH, VT

2 November 2015 Bookmark and Share

Regardless of the industry, it is necessary that generator sets at your facility are running at optimum performance in order to ensure that there is available back-up power in an emergency. Load bank testing of gen sets helps assure facility managers that the generators are reliable during power failure.

Failure to conduct regular load bank testing on generator sets can dramatically increase the potential risk of generator failure when a power outage occurs. This is the main reason why load bank test should be a regular part of a generator maintenance program. This helps avoid mechanical failure caused by extreme stress on the generator engine and components when it is utilized during a power outage. Additionally, load bank testing also helps maintain vital engine system parameters such as oil pressure and coolant temperature, and at the same time prevents wet stacking and carbon buildup.

The load bank rentals in Manchester, NH develop artificial loads that are critical when in conducting the test. The idea of a load bank is to accurately mimic operational load to eliminate the chances of random, unpredictable and dispersed current. While the actual power source serves as the actual requirement of power, the load bank generates an artificial load, using its energy to support, protect and test the power source.
