How does your operation perform load testing? Do you have the in-house expertise to conduct a successful load test? If not, third-party providers of load bank solutions can help.
Using a load bank provider has many benefits. When you select the right partner, you have the peace-of-mind knowing your load testing project will be carried out by a professional with specialized expertise.
Here are the top three selection criteria you should consider when evaluating a provider of load bank solutions:
1. Load Bank Inventory – A good provider will offer a broad and diverse inventory of load bank solutions. Each load bank will be matched to your particular application, regardless of complexity. If your project is exceptionally challenging, such as emulating the grid for utility power plant equipment, the solution provider must deliver what you need to conduct a successful load test. You want to work with a partner that can support almost any test and create an optimal testing environment.
For example, an experienced load bank provider will understand the value of deploying resistive and reactive load bank solutions. Resistive and reactive testing ensures a more complete and accurate test of equipment performance.
2. Technical Expertise – Knowledge is critical when it comes to conducting load bank testing. Therefore, look for a load bank solutions company that takes a consultative approach to projects. You want to work with technical experts who can plan equipment placement, coordinate end-to-end logistics, provide roll-out/roll-up services and create a safe commissioning project.
3. Customized Solutions – Even with an extensive inventory of load bank solutions, a provider may not be able to meet your exact requirements. With a talented in-house engineering staff, a proven provider will be able and willing to modify existing load bank equipment or design new solutions to complete your project. Your provider should whatever it takes to complete your project on time and within budget.
