This is a chart we developed for the Maximum Relief Valve Setting for Hydraulic Elevators. This is a simple reference chart to facilitate inspection and testing procedures. While we view this as a tool to assist the user, this chart is not intended to be a substitute for the actual calculation of what the maximum relief valve setting can be based on the A17.1 Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators.
We invite all Elevator Inspectors, Elevator Consultants, Elevator Enforcement Authorities and anyone else to please feel free to print and use this MAXIMUM RELIEF VALVE SETTING CHART in the performance of their work. Hopefully it will prove as useful to you as it has for us.
