Hydraulic Elevator Jack Replacement

Single Bottom Hydraulic Elevator Cylinder Replacement and Requirements

Single Bottom Hydraulic Elevator Cylinders (pre-1971) are required by the State of Indiana (and many other states) to be replaced with Double Bottomed Safety Bulk Head Cylinders. 

Indiana Elevator Safety/Amusements has issued a letter to owners who have not complied with the elevator hydraulic cylinder replacement regulation required in ASME A17.1-2000. 

Starting January 1, 2007, all non-complianced elevator owners will be written up with a violation. They will also be informed that failure to correct such violation will result in the division issuing an order to comply with replacement.

Elevator cylinders that do not have a safety bulkhead (double bottomed) can pose safety hazards, catastrophic failures, and/or environmental contamination. This condition has caused several fatalities and multiple injuries throughout the United States in recent years.
