Vertical - Radiator Mount Load Banks
These Avtron load banks are designed for radiator or duct mounting on diesel engine generator sets. The load bank is permanently mounted to the front of the engine generator and sized to match the width and height of the radiator core or exhaust duct opening. The load bank utilizes the engine cooling air rather than an internal cooling fan found on conventional load banks. A top and bottom mounting flange, or removable duct adapter flanges are supplied for mounting and ease of installation.
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".
