Load Bank Testing

What happens when the power goes out and your genset does not operate the way it is supposed to? The results can be costly and sometimes disastrous. Load bank testing ensures that your generator will be:

  • Dependable and operational when the power is needed
  • Capable of generating the highest possible load required at any crucial point or time

We service Northern California from our San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento locations. Call (866) 468-7697 for details.

Compliance Assessment & Planning

Powering the Success of Northern California means we also help you remain compliant with the numerous agencies and codes that regulate your generator use. We’ve simplified the complex maze of requirements so you are ready for a surprise inspection and mandated reports are just one click away.

When we assess the repair and maintenance needs of your generator, we also evaluate the following generator compliance factors:

  • What Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) govern your location
  • Load tests, as required by the NFPA 110
  • Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) inspection and testing, per NFPA 110
  • Record keeping, per NFPA 110
  • Secondary remote emergency stop switch requirement, per NFPA 70
  • Annual diesel fuel testing, per NFPA 110
  • Rupture basin sensor testing, per California Fire Code (CFC) 5003 & 5004
  • Emergency power source exit lighting, per CFC 1011

Load Bank Testing Service

When we perform a load bank test, we place an artificial load on your generator by bringing the engine to the recommended operating temperature and pressure levels. This is especially important for emergency generator sets that do not run very often and may not be exposed to carrying heavy loads on a regular basis.

Advantages of Load Bank Testing

There are many reasons why gensets should undergo a load bank test on an annual basis, including:

  • Confirming the gensets output capabilities as opposed to just starting it up on occasion.
  • Finding problems now, instead of when an emergency arises, can be a major cost savings and prevent future breakdowns.
  • Helps to avoid wet-stacking and cleans out any carbon deposits.
  • Confirms that the engine cooling system will work efficiently under load.
  • Makes sure that the genset will work properly when needed.
