DC Mill Motors are a special class of DC Motor that are built in a clam shell style frame. This type of DC Motor is predominately used in the Steel and Mining Industries. DC Mill motors can be serviced while in place rather than having to be removed from the application to service. DC Mill Motors were manufactured by General Electric, Westinghouse Electric, P&H Electric, and Crocker Wheeler.
