Electric Still/Mash Tun Agitator Motor


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Looking for help in locating a vendor that sells electric motors for my mash tun/stripping still. I burnt up the motor yesterday and need a new one quick but haven't had great luck using the google search method. It's a 1 hp 3 phase 240v vertical flange mounted motor. Anyone that can help a guy out? Thanks in advance to all of you.

Is the issue the motor or the gear drive/seal assembly?

Replacing the motor is easy.  Everything you need is on the nameplate.  Look for "Frame Size" - this tells you exactly what kind of motor mount it has.

Highly likely that you will see something like 56C, 143TC, etc etc.  Next, get the horsepower or KW, this gets you your power, and then your voltages.

You can likely find any motor on eBay in a matter of a few minutes.  Otherwise, if you want to pay a premium.  Snap a photo of the motor nameplate and go to Grainger or a local motor shop.

I purchased it second hand but it is one of yours Paul. I shot you an email yesterday, may have gotten caught in a spam filter.

Red Pine,  That's a Chinese made motor from one of our older stills.  We switched to American made Baldor motors a few years ago and even though we have a few Chinese motors left, it looks like none will fit your gear box.  I know my employee Tim is working with you.  I'm going to have him see if he can locate you a motor from another vender and send you a link.
