The HACV range offers a vertical design supplied with 3 phase base models of ratting: 500KW, 1200KW, 1500KW & 2000KW solutions.
The HAC range provides a modular horizontal air flow design that is suitable for mounting on road tow trailers. The base models are offerd from 100KW, 200KW and 500KW. Parallel control allows 2 x 500KW to be mounted and rated for a 1000KW sollution.
The portable range of AC loadbanks are available in single phase and three phase ratings:
The HACM range is a low cost alternative to load bank. Testing contacts are on panel mounted switches. Standard design rates are from 30KW to 200KW. The option for panel switches is also available on 400KW to 1500KW units.
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.
The Hillstone AC software app LoadView allows PC data logging of the loadbank test. LoadView can be connected to any compatible Hillstone AC load bank via TCP/IP running Windows 10 Operating System.
- 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.
