The HACV range offers a vertical design supplied with 3 phase base models of rating: 500KW, 1200KW, 1500KW.
The HAC range is a horizontal air flow designed resistive load bank.
The base models are offerd from 100KW, 200KW and 500KW. Parallel control allows 2 x 500KW to be rated for a 1000KW sollution.
The compact HACM range of single phase & 3 phase AC
load banks are available in the following ratings:
The outdoor HACM AC load banks designs are available as:
Portable units rated from:
30kW to 200kW
Fixed units from:
300kW to 500kW.

The HACA range gives automatic load shedding for prime power generators that are running on low load, see note 1 below.
Available rattings are from 24KW to 1500KW.
- Application Note 1
Regular load bank testing of generators provides an essential health check service to prevent diesel engine failure due to wet stacking. Wet stacking occurs due to under loading of the genset which results in wet un-burned fuel building up in the engine. This fuel build up will over time line the combustion chamber cylinders and cause a reduction of the engines rating and efficiency which will ultimately cause premature failure of the generator. Continuous running the generator on load of 50% - 100% of the genset rating will allow the engine to reach the recommend operating temperature, which will burn off the choke deposits.
