Rails must be kept clean and free from lint and dirt accumulation.  
When necessary, a non-flammable or high flashpoint solvent may be 
used to remove excess lubricant, lint and dirt that may accumulate on 
the rails and present a hazard in case of fire in the hoistway.
8.6.12.3.5.4.3
Rust-preventive compounds including paint, lubricants including 
graphite, oil and similar coatings, shall not be applied unless 
recommended by the manufacturer or a Professional Engineer.
Note:	Rust-preventive compounds or improper lubricants 
may interfere with and in many cases will prevent 
proper operation of the car safety device.  Such 
substances may even cause complete failure of the 
safety to function.  If it is necessary for any reason to 
use any of these substances, written recommendations 
from the manufacturer of the elevator or a Professional 
Engineer must be obtained before their application.
8.6.12.3.6  Car and Counterweight Safeties Mechanisms 
	and Governors
All moving parts of car and counterweight safeties mechanisms must 
be kept clean and free from rust and dirt and must be lubricated at 
frequent intervals.
Note:	This is especially important where the equipment is 
exposed to water or corrosive vapours or excessively 
damp conditions because corrosion or rusting of the 
parts may prevent operation of the safety.
8.6.12.3.6.1  Examination and Tests of Safeties and 
	Overspeed Governors
(1)  All working parts must be examined and the safeties operated by 
hand to determine whether they are in safe operating condition.
(2)  If the safety is of a type requiring continual unwinding of the 
safety drum rope to fully apply the safety, and it has been operated 
by hand, not less than 3 turns of the safety drum rope must remain on 
the safety drum after the safety jaws clamp over the rail to ensure 
operation of overspeed application.
(3)  When resetting drum-operated safeties by means of the wrench 
in the car, sufficient tension must be kept in the safety-drum rope to 
prevent kinking of the rope and to ensure that it is wound evenly and 
uniformly in the drum grooves.  The drum must be rewound until no 
slack remains in the safety rope between the drum and the car 
releasing-carrier.
(4)  Overspeed governors must be examined and operated by hand to 
determine that all parts and switches operate freely and are not worn 
excessively.
(5)  If a safety test indicates it may be necessary (e.g., excessive 
slippage of governor rope through the governor jaw; the application 
of the governor jaw causes damage to the governor rope), the 
governor pull-through force must be tested for compliance with 
Requirement 2.18.6.
(6)  The governor tripping speed must be tested every time the seal 
on the governor has been disturbed or examination indicates that a 
retest is necessary.
(7)  Safeties must be tested (see 8.6.12.3.6.1.1 and 8.6.12.3.6.1.2) if 
the examination indicates that it may be necessary.
8.6.12.3.6.1.1  Procedures for Testing of Safeties
If the examination and test in 8.6.12.3.6.1 indicates that further 
testing is required to confirm that the overspeed safety device 
systems function as intended, safeties must be subjected to one of the 
following tests with no load in the car and with the car moving in the 
down direction while the safeties are being tested, or with the 
counterweight moving in the down direction while its safeties are 
being tested as follows:
	(a)	type B or C governor-operated safeties must be engaged by 
tripping the governor by hand with the car or counterweight 
operating at its lowest speed;
	(b)	type A governor-operated safeties must be engaged
	(i)	in accordance with clause (a), or
	(ii)	the governor may be first set by hand and the car or 
counterweight lowered onto the safeties by inching or 
other means;
	(c)	type A safeties without governors must be engaged by 
providing the necessary slack rope to cause them to function.
8.6.12.3.6.1.2  Safety Test Results Criteria
During the tests set out in 8.6.12.3.6.1.1, the safeties must promptly 
bring the car or counterweight to rest subject to the following:
	(a)	in the case of Type A, B or C safeties employing rollers or 
dogs for their application, the rollers or dogs are not required 
to operate their full travel;
	(b)	in the case of Type B safeties, the stopping distance is not 
required to comply with Requirement 2.17.3;
	(c)	in the case of Type C safeties, the oil buffer must be able to 
compress its full stroke.
8.6.12.3.7  Hydraulic Components
8.6.12.3.7.1
Plungers of water-hydraulic elevators and dumbwaiters must be 
thoroughly cleaned, as necessary, to remove any buildup of rust or 
scale.
8.6.12.3.7.2
If valves and cylinders use packing glands, they must be periodically 
checked and tightened or replaced as necessary to prevent excessive 
loss of the fluid.
