Hydraulic Single Bottom Cylinder Replacement
Modernization – Hydraulic Single bottom cylinder replacement
The BC Safety Authority Safety Order SO-L1 101214 1, requires that modification of hydraulic single bottom cylinder elevators be completed by October 8th, 2015. Elevators installed prior to 1977 may consist of a single bottom cylinder design. This design was more vulnerable to corrosion because of its cylinder-shape and welded flat bottom. The replacement or retrofit is required for prevention of serious safety and environmental reasons. For more information please refer to PDF file below or visit the BC Safety Authority’s website.
