Load Bank Rentals are Designed to Provide Temporary or Artificial Electrical Loads when Testing and Maintaining Generator Sets, UPS, and Other Back-up Power Sources - MA, RI, CT, ME, NH, VT

13 May 2016 Bookmark and Share

The load bank rentals in Manchester, NH can be used in many different applications. These devices are actually designed to provide temporary or artificial electrical loads that are needed when testing power sources such as generator sets and Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS). They help ensure that these power sources will work as promised especially during emergency situations when they are needed the most.

Load bank testing is the number one application of load bank rentals. While most generators are previously tested by the manufacturer, it is equally important to test a power generator in its installed location, this is an on-site acceptance test. Artificial loads are needed for these tests which is an effective way for the project manager, maintenance personnel, and engineer on site to determine the quality and reliability of the power generator.

The load banks for rent are also used to conduct scheduled maintenance of large generators, UPS systems, turbines, and other power systems in order to prevent wet stacking and extend their life. Wet stacking can occur when a back-up power system is not used for a long time or is used less of its maximum capacity.
