Vertical Motor Load Testing in Bradleys’ World Class Facility! Avoid the expense of installation and startup delays by load testing your recently repaired critical motor to identify performance or site related issues. Load testing enables us to identify reliability issues before your motor is stored in a warehouse for many years, and validates the design of your repurposed motor. At Bradleys, vertical motor load testing is performed with your vertical motor in the upright position.
