This unit is a rare Governor by Belliss and Morcom. The company which were founded in 1852 in Birmingham, are now a division of Ingersoll Rand based in Redditch. The actual Governor is thought to be around at least 45 years old and obviously this particular model and parts now obsolete. We were unable to determine when it had previously been overhauled.
We fully stripped, chemically cleaned and inspected every inch of this governor. After inspection it was found that the output power piston trip mechanism housing had a large crack through the casting, and major wear throughout.
Specialist cast iron welding was carried out on the damaged part of the case and EGS manufactured all obsolete parts.
The unit was then carefully rebuilt, paint sprayed and tested to specification.
This unique Governor took 8 weeks to complete and our customer and team were all very impressed with our final achievement when fitted back into the petrochemical plant.
