TRANSFORMER GETS SHELLAC BATH

E&MP 40.023

Electric Transformers

ca. 1943

After the inside of a Hipersil transformer is completely assembled at the Westinghouse Works in Sharon, Pa., it is given a protective coating of shellac.

The workman in this picture is lowering a group of eight transformer assemblies into the shellac bath.

When they come out they will join the line on the right (background) to go through a baking oven. Unshellacked units are shown in the line at the left.
