    OPERATION:

    OIL FROM A RESERVOIR IS PUMPED UNDER THE PLUNGER THEREBY PUSHING THE CAR UP.

    ONCE THE CAR IS RAISED TO THE DESIRED LEVEL, THE PUMP IS STOPPED.

    THE ELEVATOR IS THEN LOWERED BY SLOWLY RELEASING THE OIL BACK INTO THE RESERVOIR, SO THAT THE CAR DESCENDS BY GRAVITY.OPERATION OF HYDRAULIC ELEVATORS

    CHARACTERISTICS:

    LIMITED TO ONLY A FEW STORIES (75).

    PRACTICALLY NOISELESS, EXCEPT FOR VIBRATION OF HYDRAULIC PIPING.

    REQUIRES NO PENTHOUSE.

    GENERALLY LESS EXPENSIVE THAN CABLE TYPE.

    LARGER CARRYING CAPACITY THAN CABLE ELEVATOR.

    SPEED CANNOT EXCEED 200 FPM.

    LARGER ENERGY COSTS: LARGE MOTOR BECAUSE IT HAS NO COUNTER WEIGHT.CHARACTERISTICS OF HYDRAULIC ELEVATORS

    OPERATION OF CABLE ELEVATORSOPERATION:

    CAR IS SUSPENDED FROM CABLE, WHICH IS SUPPORTED BY THE HOISTING MACHINERY LOCATED IN THE PENTHOUSE.

    THE HOISTING MACHINERY RAISES & LOWERS THE CAR AS DIRECTED.

    THE CAR IS GUIDED IN ITS VERTICAL TRAVEL UP & DOWN THE SHAFT BY A SYSTEM OF ROLLERS & GUIDE RAILS.

    RESIDENTIAL ELEVATORSDESCRIPTION:

    STANDARD TRACTION DESIGNS ARE USED INFREQUENTLY IN RESIDENTIAL DESIGNS BECAUSE OF THE OVERHEAD SPACE REQUIREMENT.

    STANDARD HYDRAULIC SYSTEMS WHICH REQUIRE A PLUNGER BORE HOLE ARE RARELY USED.

    PRIVATE RESIDENCES TYPICALLY USE WINDING-DRUM UNITS, ROPED HYDRAULICS AND WORM & SCREW SYSTEMS.

    DETERMINING THE REQUIRED NUMBER OF ELEVATORSROUND-TRIP TIME (RRT):

    THE AVERAGE TIME REQUIRED FOR A CAR TO COMPLETE A ROUND TRIP, STARTING FROM THE GROUND FLOOR & RETURNING TO IT .

    RRT IS A FACTOR OF:

    RUNNING TIME: DISTANCE TRAVELED/ CAR SPEED (MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR).

    ACCELERATION & DECELERATION: TYPICALLY ABOUT 2 SECONDS PER STOP.

    DOOR OPENING & CLOSING TIME: TYPICALLY ABOUT 8 SECONDS.

    LOADING & UNLOADING TIME: DEPENDS ON THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE & THE WIDTH OF THE DOORS.
