This is a slip ring motor we have just refurbished and which is ready to be dispatched.
It was manufactured by The English Electric Co Ltd. There is no date on it but we estimated around 1960.
Despite its substantial size, it’s only rated at 45 H.P and when in operation the motor drives a pump.
It’s always a pleasure to work on these motors as they are a piece of British engineering history.
It was also very well manufactured – even decades later, with the correct maintenance such motors continue to operate for many years.
