Load Banks

Wernick Power Solutions have a fleet of loadbanks; from 20kW to multi megawatt packaged solutions. We can survey your site, deliver the equipment, complete the testing to a prescribed list of requirements, and we can ensure that your running or backup power supply is tested, compliant and ready to work when you need it

Operating from hire depots in the UK we can provide rental solutions for your load testing requirements.

Our Load Banks are supplied with cable sets and with the option for mounting on road trailers, the available range covers from 50KW to over 2000KW.

Load Bank Testing

Regular load bank testing of generators provides an essential health check service to prevent diesel engine failure due to wet stacking. Wet stacking occurs due to under loading of the generator which results in wet un-burned fuel building up in the engine. This fuel build up will over time line the combustion chamber cylinders and cause a reduction of the engines rating and efficiency which will ultimately cause premature failure of the generator. Running the generator on load of 50% – 100% of the generators rating will allow the engine to reach the recommend operating temperature, which will burn off the choke deposits.

Our testing offers a complete nation-wide service of load bank delivery, installation and operation by trained engineers, who have the technology to simulate any sequence of demand cycles. We have a wide range of mobile resistive load bank units, connectable to match any power output and voltage range. Tests can be pre-programmed into computer controlled load banks that record all load acceptance and rejection transients.

All of our Load Banks can be transported by trailer making them accessible to most confined spaces, these are available up to 1MW per trailer and includes 25m of suitably rated cable.
