Length: 3 days CEUs: 2.30 PDHs: 23.00
This comprehensive course is based on ASME 17.1/CSA B44 Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators and the ASME A17.2 Guide for Inspection of Elevators, Escalators, and Moving Walks. It provides a top-to-bottom look at inspection techniques and concepts including how to conduct elevator inspections and tests safely, both for scheduled updates and unexpected problems. It will take you inside the car, through the machine way, by the hoistway, outside the car, and into the pit. The workshop format uses new videotape examples covering both inspectors’ manuals and sections on inspection and testing.
Testing and exercises are used to emphasize the requirements and inculcate the requirements. These include measuring and calculating top car clearance, bottom runby and clearances, governor trip setting, overspeed switch settings, safety sliding distance, working pressure and relief valve setting, top and bottom runby, run limit timer, and other adjustments. Safety Integrity Level (SIL) rated devices are introduced and Fire Emergency Operation is covered.
Each participant will receive extensive course notes, a copy of ASME A17.2 Guide for Inspection of Elevators, Escalators & Moving Walk; ASME A17.1 /CSA B44 Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators; ASME A17.3 Safety Code for Existing Elevators and Escalators; Elevator Industry Inspection Handbook; and the Elevator Industry Field Employees’ Safety Handbook.
Participants should bring:
- A scientific calculator
You Will Learn To
- Record and report results of inspections and tests
- Explain how to determine correct vertical clearances
- Identify acceptable refuge space on the car top and in the pit
- Describe the safety slide and buffer deceleration guidelines
- Identify the procedures to examine hydraulic and electrical equipment
- Explain top and bottom car, counterweight clearances, runby
- Identify working pressure for hydraulic elevators
- Explain governor pull through and release carrier pull out forces
This course is structured on the assumption that participants have a basic knowledge of elevator systems. Anyone with little or no knowledge of elevators should attend course PD100, "Introduction to the Maintenance & Inspection of Elevators and Escalators," as a prerequisite to this training.
ASME A17.7/ CSA B44.7 Performance Based Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators will also be discussed
