Ensure Uninterrupted Power to Critical Systems with ComRent
Load banks are ComRent’s only business. We know what it takes to completely test backup generators and other critical power plant equipment for medical facilities. Annual or semi-annual tests offer little guarantee that backup power will perform as expected if the generators are not tested at full load. And incomplete testing runs the risk of diesel engine “wet stacking,” the most common cause of generator failure. We developed a proprietary transportable medium voltage load bank, designed just for the purpose of testing generators at a full, sustained electrical load – just as it would need to perform during a real-world emergency power failure.
Load Banks for Hospitals and Healthcare
Load testing with reactive load banks on a regular basis is a hospital’s best defense to ensure backup equipment can sustain the lagging load when triggered. Here are other ways ComRent can help with regular testing using load banks:
- Take advantage of testing with both reactive and resistive load banks to ensure a complete, accurate test of the generator’s performance. We can also parallel test multiple backup generators – with no transformers necessary.
- Correctly test today’s high-power, high-capacity generators. ComRent brings proprietary CR922A load banks directly to your backup power plant—along with the high-power cable required for full load testing.
- Set up a regular maintenance testing schedule with ComRent. Build testing with load banks into your annual budget – and let ComRent take all the guesswork out of correctly maintaining backup generators.
- Meet the mandatory minimum standards of the American Society of Hospital Engineers (ASHE), which recommends monthly equipment resistive testing, as well as total system testing with a reactive load to validate performance under emergency conditions.
