Elevators notes 1.pptx
 An elevator is a type of vertical transport equipment.
 Elevators are generally powered by electric motors that either drive
traction cables or counterweight systems like a hoist, or pump
hydraulic fluid to raise a cylindrical piston like a jack.
 Because of wheelchair access laws, elevators are often have legal
requirement in new multistory buildings, especially where
wheelchair ramps would be impractical.
 A modern day lift consists of a cab mounted on a platform within an
enclosed space called a shaft or sometimes a “ hoistway “.
 Hydraulic lifts use the principles of hydraulics to pressurize an
above ground or in-ground piston to raise and lower the car.
 Roped hydraulics use a combination of both ropes and hydraulic
power to raise and lower cars.
 Hydraulic lifts are cheaper, but installing cylinders greater than a
certain length becomes impractical for very high lift hoistways.
Hydraulic lifts are usually slower than traction lifts.
 Machine room-less elevators are designed so that most of the
components fit within the shaft containing the elevator car; and a
small cabinet houses the elevator controller. Other than the
machinery being in the hoistway, the equipment is similar to a normal
traction elevator.
 Benefits
• creates more usable space
 use less energy (70-80% less than hydraulic elevators)
 uses no oil
 slightly lower cost than other elevators
 can operate at faster speeds than hydraulics but not normal traction
 Units.
 There are at least four means of moving an elevator:
1. Traction elevators
• Geared and gearless traction elevators
Geared traction machines are driven by AC or DC electric motors.
Geared machines use gears to control mechanical movement of
elevator cars by "rolling" steel hoist ropes over a drive sheave
which is attached to a gearbox driven by a high speed motor. These
machines are generally the best option for basement or overhead
traction use for speeds up to 500 ft/min (2.5 m/s).
• Gearless traction machines are low speed, high torque electric
motors powered either by AC or DC. In this case, the drive sheave
is directly attached to the end of the motor. Gearless traction
elevators can reach speeds of up to 2,000 ft/min (10 m/s), or even
higher. A brake is mounted between the motor and drive sheave to
hold the elevator stationary at a floor.

• Elevators with more than 100 ft (30 m) of travel
have a system called compensation. This is a
separate set of cables or a chain attached to the
bottom of the counterweight and the bottom of the
elevator cab. This makes it easier to control the
elevator, as it compensates for the differing weight
of cable between the hoist and the cab
2. Hydraulic elevators
Conventional hydraulic elevators. They use an
underground cylinder, are quite common for low
level buildings with 2–5 floors (sometimes but
seldom up to 6–8 floors), and have speeds of up
to 200 feet/minute (1 meter/second).
Holeless hydraulic elevators were developed in
the 1970s, and use a pair of above ground
cylinders, which makes it practical for
environmentally or cost sensitive buildings with 2,
3, or 4 floors.
Roped hydraulic elevators use both above ground
cylinders and a rope system, allowing the
elevator to travel further than the piston has to
move.

A brake is mounted between the motor and drive sheave to hold the elevator stationary at a floor.
  • 6. • Elevators with more than 100 ft (30 m) of travel have a system called compensation. This is a separate set of cables or a chain attached to the bottom of the counterweight and the bottom of the elevator cab. This makes it easier to control the elevator, as it compensates for the differing weight of cable between the hoist and the cab 2. Hydraulic elevators Conventional hydraulic elevators. They use an underground cylinder, are quite common for low level buildings with 2–5 floors (sometimes but seldom up to 6–8 floors), and have speeds of up to 200 feet/minute (1 meter/second). Holeless hydraulic elevators were developed in the 1970s, and use a pair of above ground cylinders, which makes it practical for environmentally or cost sensitive buildings with 2, 3, or 4 floors. Roped hydraulic elevators use both above ground cylinders and a rope system, allowing the elevator to travel further than the piston has to move.
  • 7. The low mechanical complexity of hydraulic elevators in comparison to traction elevators makes them ideal for low rise, low traffic installations. They are less energy efficient as the pump works against gravity to push the car and its passengers upwards; this energy is lost when the car descends on its own weight. The high current draw of the pump when starting up also places higher demands on a building’s electrical system. 3. Traction-Hydraulic Elevators The traction-hydraulic elevator has overhead traction cables and counterweight, but is driven by hydraulic power instead of an overhead traction motor. The weight of the car and its passengers, plus an advantageous roping ratio, reduces the demand from the pump to raise the counterweight, thereby reducing the size of the required machinery. 4. Climbing elevator A climbing elevator is a self-ascending elevator with its own propulsion. The propulsion can be done by an electric or a combustion engine. Climbing elevators are used in guyed masts or towers, in order to make easy access to parts of these constructions, such as flight safety lamps for maintenance.
  • 8. Concept Elevator air conditioning is fast becoming a popular concept around the world. The primary reason for installing an elevator air conditioner is the comfort that it provides while traveling in the elevator. It stabilizes the condition of the air inside the lift car. Health One of the benefits of installing an elevator air conditioner is the clean air it provides. Air was typically drawn from the elevator shaft or hoistway into the car using a motorized fan. This air could contain dust mites, germs and bacteria. With an elevator air conditioner, the air is much cleaner because it is recirculated within the car itself and is usually filtered to remove contaminants. A poorly maintained air-conditioning system may promote the growth and spread of microorganisms, but as long as the air conditioner is kept clean, these health hazards can be avoided.
  • 9. Drawbacks Heat generated from the cooling process is dissipated into the hoistway. The elevator cab (or car) is not air- tight, and some of this heat will reenter the car and reduce the overall cooling effect, which may be less than ideal. Energy The air from the lobby constantly leaks into the elevator shaft due to elevator movements as well as elevator shaft ventilation requirements. Using this conditioned air in the elevator does not increase energy costs. However, by using an independent elevator air conditioner to achieve better temperature control inside the car, more energy will be used. Condensation Air conditioning poses a problem to elevators because of the condensation that occurs. The condensed water produced has to be disposed of; otherwise, it would create flooding in the elevator car and hoistway.
  • 10.  The following are suggested inside dimensions and rated capacities: • Office buildings: 6 feet 8 inches wide by 5 feet 5 inches deep; 3,500 pounds. • Apartment buildings: 6 feet 8 inches wide by 4 feet 3 inches deep; 2,500 pounds • Hotels/motels: 6 feet 8 inches wide by 5 feet 5 inches deep; 3,500 pounds. • Service elevators: 5 feet 4 inches wide by 8 feet 5 inches deep; 4,500 pounds. • Hospital passenger elevators: 6 feet 8 inches wide by 5 feet 5 inches deep; 3,500 pounds. • Hospital vehicle elevators: 5 feet 9 inches wide by 10 feet deep; 6,000 pounds. Office buildings:  1. One elevator is required for every 45,000 net usable square feet. The ratio of the number of floors to the  number of elevators should be two to one or two and a half to one, depending on the occupancy of the building.  The more dense the population, the more elevators needed.  2. The number of elevators in a single group should not exceed eight and no single group should serve more  than 16 levels.  3. In buildings of four to eight floors, a separate service elevator should be considered. Over nine floors, a  service elevator is virtually required.
  • 11. Hotels/motels:  1. Provide one elevator for every 75 rooms with a minimum of one elevator up to three floors. Do not exceed  150 feet from farthest room to elevator.  2. When room service is provided, allow for one separate service elevator for every two passenger elevators.  3. Special-functions, meeting rooms, or lobby areas above entry level can increase the number of elevators. Apartment / Condominium/Dormitory  1. One elevator for every 90 units with a maximum distance of 150 feet from elevators to the most distant unit.  2. Urban locations or high-price units might require one elevator for every 60 units.  3. Make one elevator oversize (at least 3,500 pounds) to accommodate furniture. In buildings 10 floors or more,  consider a separate service elevator.
  • 12. Passenger elevators should be located at the circulation core of the building and be grouped into banks when this is necessary and desirable. • The required umber of elevators is determined by: Building type Building height Number of stops Floor use Passenger volume
  • 14. A freight elevator, or goods lift, is an elevator designed to carry goods, rather than passengers. Freight elevators are typically larger and capable of carrying heavier loads than a passenger elevator, generally from 2,300 to 4,500 kg. Freight elevators may have manually operated doors, and often have rugged interior finishes to prevent damage while loading and unloading. Although hydraulic freight elevators exist, electric elevators are more energy efficient for the work of freight lifting.
  • 15.  Scenic elevators also called glass elevators are getting popular. They loosen rigour of architecture and give passengers a visually stimulating ride between floors.This type of elevators are suitable for luxurious buildings. It increases the passenger sense of security.  If the technical components are to be hidden, the scenic elevator consist of entrance area and a viewing area.The entrance area is surrounded by an enclosed shaft that contains necessary elevator technology.The car is also enclosed in this area.  The car walls must be constructed with laminated glass with EN 81.Depending on architecture , opaque sheet metal doors can be replaced with transluscent glass doors in scenic elevators.
  • 16.  Dumbwaiter - Dumbwaiters are small freight elevators that are intended to carry food rather than passengers. They often link kitchens with rooms on other floors.  Paternoster -A special type of elevator is the paternoster, a constantly moving chain of boxes. A similar concept, called the manlift or humanlift, moves only a small platform, which the rider mounts while using a handhold and was once seen in multi- story industrial plants.  Scissor lift -The scissor lift is yet another type of lift. As most of these lifts are self-contained, these lifts can be easily moved to where they are needed.  Rack-and-pinion lift -The rack-and-pinion lift is another type of lift. These lifts are powered by a motor driving a pinion gear. Because they can be installed on a building or structure's exterior and there is no machine room or hoistway required, they are the most used type of lift for buildings under construction
  • 17.  ELEVATOR SHAFT – contain building components necessary for the operation of elevator. Its dimension depends upon elevator model, door design and type of drive. They must have ventilation and smoke extracting openings. The cross section of these openings is generally 2.5% of the shaft floor area, with minimum cross section stipulated as 0.1m.sq.  SHAFT PIT – the bottom end of the shaft is called pit. The depth of the pit is measured from the top edge of the finished floor at the lowest elevator stop to the top edge of the finished floor of the pit floor. The minimum depth of pit is determined by: space required for construction over run and safety space stipulated by regulations The pit sits directly on the foundation. Shaft pits that are 1 to 2.5m deep must be equipped with a removable access ladder. Pits with a depth greater than 2.5m must have a secure access door to a building floor.
  • 18.  SHAFT HEAD – It is the upper section of the shaft, measured from the top edge of the finished floor at the uppermost stop to the bottom edge of the shaft ceiling.  SHAFT ACCESS – The size of the shaft access points is determined by the door design, while their location is defined by shaft symmetry.  MACHINE ROOM - Depending upon the type of drive machine room is located either at the top above the shaft or at the bottom next to it.
  • 19.  In addition to doors, the size of the elevator shaft is also largely determined by dimensions of elevator car.  All elevator cars must be well lit, with grid independent safety lights which are battery operated  Passenger and freight elevator cars must be ventilated. Air intake and exhaust openings must be placed to ensure sufficient diagonal and cross ventilation.
  • 20.  An escalator is a moving staircase – a conveyer transport device for carrying people between floors of a building. The device consists of a motor -driven chain of individual, linked steps that move up or down on tracks, allowing the step treads to remain horizontal.  Escalators are used around the world to move pedestrian traffic in places where elevators would be impractical. Principal areas of usage include department stores, shopping malls, airports, transit systems, hotels, arenas, stadiums and public buildings.  The benefits of escalators are many. They have the capacity to move large numbers of people, and they can be placed in the same physical space as one might install a staircase. They can be used to guide people toward main exits or special exhibits, and they may be weatherproofed for outdoor use.
  • 21.  Generally designed on an incline of 27.3, 30, 35 degrees.  35 degree escalator is most effective since it requires least amount of space. This incline is applicable to a total transportation height of 6m  If the height is more than 6m than incline of 27.3 should be given
  • 22.  Most escalators are designed with 1000mm wide steps which allow passengers to move comfortably when carrying luggage and shopping bags.  600mm and 800mm wide steps are also available and generally used in low traffic areas  Standard transportation speed ranges between 0.5 to 0.65m/s  For a speed of 0.5m/s the theoretical capacity is: 600mm step width -4500 persons per hour 800mm step width -6750 persons per hour 1000mm step width -9000 persons/hour  Whenever possible its best to install two or more parallel sets of escalators.
  • 23.  Escalators have three typical configuration options: • Parallel -up and down escalators "side by side or separated by a distance", seen often in metro stations and multilevel motion picture theaters • Crisscross -minimizes structural space requirements by "stacking" escalators that go in one direction, frequently used in department stores or shopping centers • Multiple parallel -two or more escalators together that travel in one direction next to one or two escalators in the same bank that travel in the other direction Escalators are required to have moving handrails that keep pace with the movement of the steps. The direction of movement (up or down) can be permanently the same, or be controlled by personnel according to the time of day, or automatically.
  • 25.  Landing platforms -These two platforms house the curved sections of the tracks, as well as the gears and motors that drive the stairs. The top platform contains the motor assembly and the main drive gear, while the bottom holds the step return idler sprockets. These sections also anchor the ends of the escalator truss. In addition, the platforms contain a floor plate and a comb plate. The floor plate provides a place for the passengers to stand before they step onto the moving stairs. This plate is flush with the finished floor and is either hinged or removable to allow easy access to the machinery below. The comb plate is the piece between the stationary floor plate and the moving step.  Truss -The truss is a hollow metal structure that bridges the lower and upper landings. It is composed of two side sections joined together with cross braces across the bottom and just below the top. The ends of the truss are attached to the top and bottom landing platforms via steel or concrete supports. "freestanding" escalator reveals its inner components through the transparent truss
  • 26.  Tracks -The track system is built into the truss to guide the step chain, which continuously pulls the steps from the bottom platform and back to the top in an endless loop. There are actually two tracks: one for the front wheels of the steps (called the step-wheel track) and one for the back wheels of the steps (called the trailer-wheel track). The relative positions of these tracks cause the steps to form a staircase as they move out from under the comb plate.  Steps -The steps themselves are solid, one piece, die-cast aluminum or steel. Yellow demarcation lines may be added to clearly indicate their edges. The steps are linked by a continuous metal chain that forms a closed loop. The front and back edges of the steps are each connected to two wheels. The rear wheels are set further apart to fit into the back track and the front wheels have shorter axles to fit into the narrower front track. As described above, the position of the tracks controls the orientation of the steps View of escalator steps on continuous chain
  • 27.  Handrail- The handrail provides a convenient handhold for passengers while they are riding the escalator. In an escalator, the handrail is pulled along its track by a chain that is connected to the main drive gear by a series of pulleys. It is constructed of four distinct sections. At the center of the handrail is a "slider", also known as a "glider ply", which is a layer of a cotton or synthetic textile. The purpose of the slider layer is to allow the handrail to move smoothly along its track. The next layer, known as the "tension member”, consists of either steel cable or flat steel tape, and provides the handrail with tensile strength and flexibility. On top of tension member are the inner construction components, which are made of chemically treated rubber designed to prevent the layers from separating. Finally, the outer layer—the only part that passengers. Escalator balustrades are usually made of laminated glass or as steel structures covered in sheet metal.
