Load Bank Testing
What is Load Bank Testing?
Load Bank Testing allows a generator power system to be tested and exercised under load to verify its overall reliability to perform in a real emergency outage. The test confirms the system’s ability to run up to its nameplate/rated KW and run at this level without overheating or shutting down.
Our technician monitors engine & generator parameters (oil, fuel pressure, temperatures, voltage, amps, kV, etc.) and submits a report to the owner on completion. Test vary in length but typically run 2-4 hours.
Load Bank Testing reduces long term cost by reducing harmful engine wet stacking and carbon build up and damage to injector nozzles, piston rings, turbo chargers and exhaust system components as well. This test is recommended as part of any good maintenance program in addition to NFPA requirements.
Based on your specific requirements, whether a nursing home, hospital surgical center, waste water treatment plant or critical power application, MIP will provide or recommends the specific load bank test required by the state or specific application. MIP provides certified test reports along with no wet stacking letters as required. MIP offers load bank testing at competitive pricing.
