four-way valve.


Add 7-26:
Factory regulations prohibit machine operators from using disconnect
switch, except in case of emergency; therefore, all operations including
timing motors, solenoids, etc., which run continuously during operation,
must be started and stopped by use of a magnetic master control relay, or
equivalent, rather than using the disconnect switch.

manufacturer that motor bearings meet this service requirement.
8.112 Add 16-6 (f):
It shall be understood (and the submitting of a bid is understood by the
manufacturer as declaration to that effect) that the manufacturer will be
responsible for replacing any motor which, upon failure within five years of
installation, is found to have been equipped with bearings which do not
meet these rating life requirements. This guarantee requirement is in
addition to that specified herein before.

bearing life. Bearings on motors 1/4 hp and larger shall be equipped with
double seals.
8.114 Add 16-6 (h):
Unit bearing motors are not acceptable for any service, except upon
special written acceptance by the purchaser.

complete information concerning the respective motors. This information
shall include the following:


Maximum temperature rise in continuous service
Enclosure type
-- Type of bearings
-- Manufacturer's bearing numbers
-- Type of lube fitting
-- AFBMA Rating Life (B-10 Basis)
NEMA design code letter
Thermal damage curve for motors 100 hp and larger

8.118 Add 16-7:

Motors mounted within machine compartments or enclosures shall be
provided with sufficient space for ease of lubrication, servicing, and
replacement. Sufficient air circulation shall be provided so that the motor,
when under full-load conditions, will not exceed its rated temperature rise.
8.119 Add 16-8:
The motor compartment, or mounting space, shall be of sufficient size to
accommodate a NEMA frame size motor, complete with junction box, two
NEMA horsepower sizes larger, at the same speed, than that
recommended by the industrial equipment builder for driving the
8.120 Add 16-9 (a):
Special motors with static and dynamic balance and noise control shall be
used only to eliminate machine trouble from these sources. In no case
shall the degree of balance be less than that specified in NEMA Standard
MG-1, Motors and Generators.
8.121 Add 16-9 (b).
Special characteristics of AC motors shall be shown on a separate
nameplate mounted adjacent to the conventional motor nameplate. The
manufacturer's catalog numbers shall not be considered sufficient to
designate such characteristics. Typical examples are:

Special insulation


Special shaft length


Special torque


Special balance


Special lubrication

8.122 Add 16-10:

No motor shall be required to operate intermittently or continuously above
its RMS hp rating.
8.123 Add 16-11:
Motors 300 hp and above shall have two sets of thermistors embedded in
the stator--one set to shut the motor down in event of over temperature,
the second set to prevent over temperature on restart by requiring
sufficient cooldown prior to restart.
