Spares for traction resistors
Cressall has extensive records of the railway resistors supplied from the 1960’s onwards for all types of electric and diesel electric locomotives, EMUs and metro cars. We also carry all the records from many other companies such as Eaton Cutler-Hammer, TPR Resistors, GEC Industrial Controls, GEC Alsthom and Alstom whose resistor businesses we have acquired.
In many cases where original equipment designs are not available or no longer manufactured, we can design functionally equivalent replacements. If necessary these can be retested to ensure that they will meet the same type-test criteria for electrical, thermal and vibration performance as the original equipment designs.
We have an extensive range of resistor technologies still being manufactured today, including Cutler-Hammer High Temp, Eurostyle and Service Grids, Cressall ‘Expamet’ expanded mesh and ZO coils, GEC ‘RP’ B-type and D-type coils, etc.
