CASE STUDY: HERITAGE ENGINEERING PROJECT
CLIENT: MUSEUM OF SCIENCE & INDUSTRY, MANCHESTER Traction Engine Rebuild
JOB: RESTORE WILLIAM PEEL BEAM ENGINE, AND INSTALL IN NEW GALLERY

SCOPE OF WORK
The job entailed removing the Beam Engine from Helmshore Industrial Museum. We then transported it back to our works, where it was stripped down fully, the castings that were cracked in places were repaired using cast iron welding techniques, the burnished rods were polished, and the whole engine was re-built and mounted onto a steel support frame.

We then transported it to the Science Museum in Manchester, where it was skated into position and the flywheel mounted. It now resides in the new gallery on show to hundreds of visitors weekly.
