Load Bank Rentals Provide The Necessary, Reliable Artificial Load for Testing and Commissioning Standby Generators - MA, RI, CT, ME, NH, VT

29 December 2015 Bookmark and Share

Load bank testing allows standby generators to be tested in order to verify its overall reliability to perform in an emergency situation. These tests also help eliminate excessive fuel build up or unburnt fuel deposits from building up in the generator engine.

When a load bank is used for testing generators, the artificial load they provide brings standby generators up to the acceptable operating temperature. During the testing and commissioning, the load bank plays a vital role in ensuring that the generator engine is not run in low or unloaded conditions. Additionally, load bank testing using artificial loads also checks the ability of the generator’s engine to provide the required horsepower for extended periods of time.

Load bank rentals in Portsmouth, NH make it convenient to conduct the correct testing on standby generators which are seldom used because power outage or scheduled maintenance do not occur regularly. Load banks are available in a wide range of artificial loads so you can rent the one that fits the specific requirements of your commercial generator. Because load bank testing can be conducted regularly by renting load banks, your facility will be prepared for the next power interruption with a standby generator that is in pristine condition.
