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. 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.
