Beaver Electrical recently completed an in-place rewind of a large motor for a pulp mill. Due to the size and location of the motor, removal from the plant was impossible. The motor’s function is to grind cottonwood into kraft pulp before being transferred elsewhere in the plant for further processing.
The motor was manufactured by English Electric in the 1950’s and installed in the mill.
In 1982, after 30 years of service, Beaver performed an in-place rewind on the motor.
After another 28 years of service, Beaver performed the same service.
We are honoured by our long-time customers. Photos are from both the 1982 rewind job and the 2010 rewind job.
