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
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.
