Load Bank Testing - Commercial Power Generators

Diesel GeneratorDiesel Service & Supply thoroughly tests and inspects each industrial generator that passes through our facility.  Load bank testing is a critical component in our process and something we do daily. The purpose of a load bank test ranges from testing engine temperature levels and cooling system performance to checking to see if the generator can handle it's full kW capacity, plus it also ensures the genset can handle fluctuating loads when the need arises. This article explains what load bank testing is, how the test works, benefits of testing, and why load testing should be part of any preventive ongonig generator maintenance - plus a video that shows some examples of load tests in action!
