Piston Stabilizer (Holeless Hydraulic)

Stabilize pistons while checking for damage prior to seal replacement
This fully-adjustable piston stabilizer ensures a safe packing seal
replacement and eliminates the possibility of damaging the new packing
seal. This simple tool keeps the piston secure during the entire seal
replacement process.
When changing out a seal, it is necessary to check the entire length of the
piston for damage and make any repairs prior to installing the new seal.
This is typically done by running the piston from the car top to the upper
limit of its travel. The risk when doing this is that the further the piston is
extended out of the cylinder, the more unstable it becomes. The excess
movement puts considerable pressure and wear on the packing seal, and
the piston could also potentially catch a bracket or hoistway obstruction.
Use the MEI Piston Stabilizer on your next seal replacement for an easier,
safer repair! Contact MEI for pricing and availability.
Part No. 22070

Adjustable Piston Stabilizer (2 Required Per Application)

Stabilize piston during a cylinder replacement
This versatile piston stabilizer is an essential tool for safe and efficient
cylinder replacements. Simply attach to the upper portion of the piston to
maintain a secure, accurately-aligned piston during retrieval of the car from
the overhead. This tool installs in less than 5 minutes!
During a cylinder replacement, the elevator is typically hoisted and secured
in the top of the hoistway. The old piston and cylinder are then removed
and the new piston is installed. To complete the procedure, the new piston
is run up and attached to the bottom of the car sling (located in the top of
the hoistway). The further the piston is extended out of the cylinder, the
more unstable it becomes.
MEI’s Adjustable Piston Stabilizer ensures the safe, secure, and plumb
travel of the piston to the bottom of the car and eliminates the potential
for seal damage caused by excess movement. Save time and money by
using this tool instead of building custom stabilizers at each job site! The
MEI Adjustable Piston Stabilizer will accommodate a wide range of field
situations. Contact MEI for capabilities and pricing.
Part No. 21981
