For Tube Rolling Applications, Electric Rolling Motors Must Be Especially Rugged

Long Island City, New York USA--When expanding tubes in boilers, heat exchangers and other pressure vessels, the rolling motor must often be run to a stall, and that can damage many electric motors. That's why Thomas C. Wilson, Inc. offers two especially rugged and durable electric rolling motors designed specifically for tube rolling.

The Wilson 41238 and 22488 Electric Rolling Motors both offer features that specifically address tube expanding applications:
- These motors can repeatedly be run to a stall without damage
- "Dead Handles" give operators of these motors added leverage
- Three-wire grounded plugs give added protection to employees
- No. 3 and No. 4 Morse Taper and 3/8, 1/2, 3/4 and 1-Inch Square Socket Drive Connectors are available
