The first two illustrations are the front and rear elevations
of a 3000 Hp DC motor. The front elevation indicates where the
gear box is to be connected to the main drive motor. The rear
elevation and commutator can be seen minus the brush gear. At
this stage in the installation the whole of the main drive is
protected by a plastic cover to avoid any contamination . This
motor forms part of a large rolling mill dismantled from a site
in Falkirk Scotland to be transported down to the West Midlands
for re - installation.
The third illustration
indicates the out put side of the main transformers feeding the
DC control panels. These supply cables being 630 mm Sq single
core aluminium with hydraulically crimped terminations, all cables
being secured to the floor via spacer brackets. On completion
of this section of the project a steel checker plate will be installed
to the steel base frame work to protect the cable installation.
