Load bank Testing
We understand the catastrophic risks that come with a dysfunctional generator, at JS Power we provide an essential preventative measure as one of our services, this is to avoid any failing generators as best as possible.
A generator load bank test involves an examination and assessment. It verifies that all primary components of the generator set are in proper working condition under loaded conditions. Annual load testing is vital to ensure your diesel standby generator is fit for purpose, and some insurance companies demand it as part of their policies.
When a diesel generator is not used frequently or only run on light loads, it can be prone to experiencing unburned fuel and soot build-up in the exhaust system. During a load bank test, the generator can run at full power and full temperature.
A load bank test ensures that your generator will run properly when it’s needed so that you can fully depend on it during an emergency. The key is to test your generator at its full kilowatt (kW) output rating.
There are multiple reasons your generator should undergo a load bank test, these include:
- Verifies the generators capability.
- Problems discovered early therefore prevents future issues.
- Helps to avoid wet-stacking and cleans out carbon deposits.
- Verifies the engine cooling systems will perform under load.
- Provides assurance that the generator will work efficiently.
You can have confidence that your generator will able to bear the load power requirements and maintain a decent service life when you get it load bank tested by JS Power.
