The British Antarctic Survey (BAS) has recently installed a second Crestchic loadbank to safeguard critical data and the livelihood of scientists at two of its primary research stations, one of which is credited with the discovery of the ozone hole in 1985.
When efficient power generation and system proving are vital, when backup systems must be fully tested to ensure they meet original design criteria, you need a stable, continuous and variable load to imitate real loads, in real time. You need a test solution that you can rely on. Turn to Crestchic, the largest loadbank manufacturer in the world.
Crestchic has the expertise and capability to develop tailor-made testing solutions that meet all your requirements, wherever you are, from standard size resistive and reactive loadbanks to custom-designed and built loadbanks of any size at any voltage and frequency.
Loadbank equipment manufacture and rental
Loadbanks are primarily used for testing in power commissioning and maintenance work such as diesel generators, gas turbines and UPS systems. Loadbanks are used for simulating real electrical loads enabling essential setup and commissioning, which ensures that electrical and control parameters are met prior to power generation / back up equipment being energized on line.
Crestchic manufactures loadbanks starting at 2kW up to 6,000kVA. Our loadbanks are available in the customer’s specified voltage and frequency and resistive or resistive reactive (typically 0.8PF). Packaged transformer’s (ISO containerized) are also available from 2.9MVA to 5.8MVA in various medium voltages.
Whatever your requirements, Crestchic has the one-stop load testing solution.
- AC loadbanks
- DC loadbanks
- MV loadbanks
- Neutral earth resistors
- MV monitoring
- Packaged transformers
Built in the UK to a high industrial standard, all Crestchic manufacturing processes are BS EN ISO 9001 – 2000 certified. With the expertise and technical knowledge that have made Crestchic the world’s leading loadbank specialists, you can count on Crestchic to provide the very best load testing solutions for you.
Worldwide loadbank rental
Crestchic loadbanks are available for rental from small units of 30kW up to multi MVA packages exceeding 80MVA at medium voltage. The Crestchic rental fleet is comprised of resistive, resistive reactive and also specialised DC loadbanks.
