|Elevator codes are a touchy subject. Each State and Municipality
may have a different requirement. Take the State of Texas for
example. In the State of Texas TDLR infforces the ASME A17.1
Elevator code. Which states that the pump in the pit must provide a
pumping capacity of 50 GPM per elevator cab. ASME also states
that you must discharge all fluid out of the sump pit which means
that you can not shut the pump down when oil is sensed in the pit,
bringing us to TDLR state that the pump must run automatically
with out any human intervention.
TDLR also says that once the pump discharge makes it past the
hoistway wall then it is up to the local municipality to determine
how that discharge is to be disposed of. Some Municipalities allow
you to send that discharge directly to the sanitary sewer. Some
require an oil water seaparator or approved oil alarm system such
as our OIL DIVERSION SYSTEM .
No matter where your local municipalitie says your sump pump
discharge must be pumped to we have a solution. We can offer a
solution in any Horsepower or power selection that you may require.
We strive to help you learn the code and the solution in the most
simple manner possible.
