Load Bank Rentals Come in Different Capacities in order to Provide The Right Testing Equipment for The Generator Set - MA, RI, CT, ME, NH, VT

25 September 2015 Bookmark and Share

Load bank testing is done in order to determine if your generator set is still producing and holding the correct voltage as rated for your specific application. Through a trained technician, this test can confirm your generator set’s output at the rated voltage and amperage. If not, then the needed adjustment or repairs will be done immediately to ensure that your generator functions at optimum performance during emergency situations when you cannot afford to be without power.

In order to conduct the test for your generator set, a wide range of load bank rentals in Portland, ME are available. You will need them to conduct load bank tests regularly to ensure that your generator set remains reliable to power critical operations during downtime. Aside from avoiding wet stacking, other benefits of load bank testing includes the following:

    -permits engine fluids to attain proper operating temperature
    -properly exercises the genset’s cooing system controls
    -fully testing engine safety shutdown systems

Load banks for rent come in different capacities so you can be confident that you will have the right testing equipment to use. Each is strategically designed for a specific application to accurately mimic the operational load a generator set will encounter in an actual application.
