  • Description

    THE ELECTRIC MOTORS WILL WITHSTAND THE EXTREME HEAT ENCOUNTERED DURING SUPERSONIC FLIGHTS BY JET PLANES, MISSILES, AND ROCKETS.

    ALTHOUGH THIS METHOD OF FRYING A RAW STEAK IS NOT RECOMMENDED, WESTINGHOUSE ENGINEERS WANTED TO DEMONSTRATE JUST HOW HOT THEIR MOTOR CAN GET AND STILL OPERATE. ALREADY IT HAS BEEN RUN AT 950 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT.

    THIS IS NEARLY TWICE THE TEMPERATURE REACHED IN A KITCHEN OVEN. TO ENABLE THESE MOTORS TO WITHSTAND TEMPERATURES AS HIGH AS 1200 (CQ) DEGREES FAHRENHEIT, WESTINGHOUSE SCIENTISTS DEVELOPED A NEW FORM OF INSULATION --
    AN INORGANIC MATERIAL, WHICH WON'T DETERIORATE UNDER HIGH TEMPERATURES.

    THE NEW INSULATION NOT ONLY WILL FIND APPLICATION IN ELECTRIC MOTORS, BUT ALSO IN TRANSFORMERS, RELAYS, AND OTHER ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT WHICH MIGHT BE USED IN MISSILES, NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS OR WHEREVER THE SPACE AGE CALLS FOR "RED HOT" DUT.
