I have a 22 kva 3 phase induction motor that has seen very little use
and, as I cannnot use it, I would like to sell it. My local scrap yard
says if I tell them how much it weighs they will tell me how much it
It is really quite heavy, but I have no way of discovering this and to
take it to the yard will not be easy. I might have to bring it back,
too! It works OK and I wonder if it is worth more as a motor. it has
a 6 cm shaft and is made by Crompton Parkinson. I can run it up a bit
on my 3hp 3 phase converter, before it trips out the converter.
Can anyone tell me how much it might weigh and if there might be a
market for it as it is.
