Load Bank Rentals Provide Artificial Loads for Testing a Power System for Overall Reliability - MA, RI, CT, ME, NH, VT

12 November 2015 Bookmark and Share

Load bank testing is an important part of the regular maintenance for a standby power system, allowing it to be tested and exercised under an artificial load. These tests are conducted to verify the overall reliability of a back-up power system to perform in an emergency power situation.

The artificial load, or dummy load, that load bank rentals in Montpelier, VT provide brings the system up to an acceptable operating temperature. As a result, wet stacking, excessive fuel build-up, or unburned fuel deposits due to running the engine on low or unloaded conditions are eliminated. Additionally, the load bank removes the risk of total loss of power and loss of quality of power required in various critical facilities such as hospitals, health care centers, and computer data centers.

With the help of load banks for rent, a test can also be conducted to a power system to determine if it has the ability to provide the required horsepower over time. When an emergency situation arises, you can be confident that the back-up power system will be able to run at optimum performance.

To find out more about how the load bank rentals can help ensure that your generator is ready to go and that your facility is prepared for the next possible power outage, contact American Power Rental.
