INTRODUCTION
Purpose
The purpose of this engineering specification is to provide designers and vendors
with the minimum technical requirements for the purchase, design, material
construction, inspection, testing, and shipping of general purpose application of
API 541 form–wound squirrel–cage induction motors 250 horsepower and larger
for use in industrial installations owned by PDVSA.
Since PDVSA has decided to adopt the PIP (Process Industry Practices)
documents: ELSMT02: “General Purpose Application of API 541
Form–Wound Squirrel–Cage Induction Motors 250 Horsepower and
Larger” and ELSMT02D: “Data Sheet for General Purpose Application of
API 541 Form–Wound Squirrel–Cage Induction Motors 250 Horsepower and
Larger” as an integral part of the Engineering Design Manual (MID), the
requirements in this document are additions or modifications to the ELSMT02 and
the section/paragraph numbers and the associated headings used in this
document correspond to the ones used in ELSMT02.
