Horizontal - Radiator Mount Load Banks
The Avtron horizontal mounted load banks are designed to be installed on the roof of the generators sound attenuated enclosures. The load bank is permanently mounted to the roof of the enclosure and sized to match the width and height of the exhaust opening. The load bank utilizes the engine cooling air rather than an internal cooling fan found on conventional load banks. The load banks are typically sized at 50-60% of the generator KW rating and used to periodically test the generator or to supplement the real generator load to minimize the effects of diesel engine "wet-stacking".
