Load Bank Rentals Test for Reliability and Extending Usability of Backup Power Systems- MA, RI, CT, ME, NH, VT

14 September 2015 Bookmark and Share

Load banks for rent are compact units that are coupled to the generators and UPS or battery systems or other power generation systems used in your business for backup power. Load banks are designed to provide dummy loads that are used during testing and maintenance.

For instance, when conducting load bank testing on emergency backup power generators, the load banks provide artificial electrical loads. Running the generator without the correct load will not prove its performance or its power capacity. This is why you need to provide dummy loads. It is recommended that your generator undergo load bank tests in order to determine its capacity as well as its reliability when an emergency situation arises.

Load bank rentals in Providence, RI are used during scheduled maintenance of electrical power systems. This maintenance should be done in order to avoid excessive wear on under-loaded power systems. Load banks help protect your power generation system from the risks of under-loading and wet stacking therefor prolonging the life of your backup power plan.

Proper and controlled loading is therefore essential and should only be done by a professional. To find out more about load bank rentals for testing and maintenance, contact American Power Rental.
