Yes! At Duthie Power, we offer solutions for any application from 22 KW to 2,000 KW diesel engine-powered generators, fuel tanks, distribution panels, load banks and cables.

A load bank is a piece of equipment that we use when testing an emergency generator. The test usually consists of a timed event which also includes the KW. As we go through the steps of the test, it will simulate a load on a generator (it’s actually an artificial load).

The test is in timed increments that would involve KW increments as well. During this, we would take readings and validate the generator’s output. You can learn more by visiting this Load Bank blog and watching our video.

At Duthie Power Services, we offer load bank testing as a separate service. We can also structure it into a service contract to make it part of the yearly maintenance on your standby power system. Load bank testing is not intrusive in any way, and there is no interruption to your facilities loads during the test. With this service, we provide a full report of the generator output readings for: voltages, amperages, kW amounts, and more.
