Hydraulic Cilinder Replacement Most hydraulic jacks installed in the past only have a single bottom and were placed directly in the ground. These in-ground cylinders are prone to corrosion and electrolysis which can lead to small leaks or catastrophic failure of the entire hydraulic system. Updates in the elevator safety codes require that replacement cylinders have double bottoms, which minimizes serious safety and environmental risks.Elevator Service Corporation can replace your single bottom cylinder with a double bottom cylinder which is tape coated and installed in a PVC liner. The thick PVC liner surrounds the sides and bottom of the cylinder and protects the cylinder from ground water electrolysis. We also install a thick rubberized tape coating as an extra measure of protection. Taken together, these measures almost entirely eliminate the risk of catastrophic failure. Whether your hydraulic cylinder is currently leaking or you are taking proactive measures to ensure against a catastrophic hydraulic failure, ESC has a solution will increase the safety of your passengers and protect the environment.
