Load Banks

We design a diverse selection of high quality custom built load banks generators which are used for a fantastic range of applications. The list below is a few examples of a suitable application:

  • Off peak loading and periodic testing of generator sets.
  • Testing of battery banks and Uninterruptible Power Supplies.
  • Dynamic braking resistors for electrical motors.
  • Energy dumps for electro magnets and wind turbines

We are proud owners of manufacturing top quality heating elements to our customer’s specifications and want to reassure you that our load banks provide maximum energy to your application.


Our design of our load banks has high quality mineral insulated, tubular and incoloy sheathed resistors which are mounted into a powder coated, galvanised sheet metal enclosure.

Also, they have an integral impeller fan which provides forced air cooling, a thermal airflow switch and fan motor interlock to ensure that the elements are not energised without adequate airflow.

A terminal box is provided which houses all switchgear, selector switches, required instrumentation and external connection is to stud terminals.

A separate 230V/1Ph/50Hz supply is required for all load banks rather than 230V/1Ph/50Hz or 400V/3Ph/50Hz to energise the control and fan circuits. Smaller units are fitted with lifting handles and castors; larger units have wheels or skids and lifting points as required.
