Pumps, fans, single & 3 phase motors. Business closing.
« on: October 30, 2013, 05:13:34 PM »
Hi All,

 Not sure if this is the right place to post this but...

 The guys next door to me are shutting up shop. George H McDougall Electrical Engineers (Hillington, Glasgow). Been in business for 70 years but shutting due to retirement.

 Its been a sad day for me. I've worked next to them for 8 years and they're like family. I keep my milk in their fridge...

Anyway, there's a few motors etc that I'm trying to save from the scrap man. No offer above scrap value refused. Palletised UK delivery from 25.

There's two or three ducted fans, as pictured and:

Grundfoss 16 bar 3ph(?) water pump

Wilo  16 bar 3ph(?) water pump 

TECO Westinghouse 3ph 415V 3kw  100L frame  1430rpm 27.5kg

WEG single phase 2.2kw  1450rpm 100L frame 38kg

Massey Colbeck single phase foot & flange mount 0.55kw (0.75hp) 1425rpm (GF7974)

Beresford pump single phase 1.1 kw 2800rpm MT80 frame

VEM 3 phase 4kw 2910 rpm 112M frame



Thanks for looking.

Wilson Logan.

I applaud your intentions, but it's not a good idea to put personal phone numbers on a forum open to the world in general.
 
Not just registered members can see it, anyone can ...

I have a few modest talents. Knowing what I'm doing isn't one of them.

I get so many spam calls, a few more won't kill me but I appreciate your concern.

Thanks,

 Wilson.

So, there's good news & bad news.

All the motors went to scrap. But... in a bizarre twist, due to another retirement, the guy with the unit on the other side of me picked up a big long term machining contract and has moved into the larger unit once occupied by the motor rewinding guys.

Which means I can leave my milk where it is. So, sorry John, the fridge is not for sale.

Cheers,

 Wilson.
