Loadbank Hire

Accurate, reliable electrical test loads for commissioning and maintaining power systems

Resistive Loadbanks

For engine only exercising and general engine maintenance a resistive only loadbank is ideal for clearing carbon build-up in the engine, it is the most common and cost-effective option for preventative maintenance.

Loadbanks provide a number of benefits:

  • Peace of mind – that the generator will work when needed
  • Regular load testing can increase the life and reliability of a generator
  • Proves true performance of the generator
  • Safe replication of emergency situations for new systems
  • Demonstrate engine output for overhauled engines

Orion AC Control System

Orion is the latest control technology used by AC loadbanks consists of 2 parts – Control system and operator interface.

The industrial control is a high performance microprocessor-based system housed within the loadbank. It is responsible for acquiring measurement data from the loadbank as well the operation and monitoring of the loadbank resources.

The operator interaface is the windows based intuitive platform which allows the operator to  view performance data at load change measured under generator tests.

Why use a Loadbank?

Over time, lightly loaded generator sets develop wet-stacking and carbon build-up in the combustion chambers and exhaust system. The use of a loadbank helps prevent this and determines the generator’s capability to produce maximum output in terms of amperage and horsepower. The impacts of low load running potentially include:

  • Increased lube oil consumption
  • Poor engine performance
  • Increased fuel consumption
  • Crankcase pressurisation
