    •is a small freight elevator (or lift)intended to carry objects rather than

    people. Dumbwaiters found withinmodern structures, including bothcommercial, public and privatebuildings, are often connectedbetween multiple floors. Wheninstalled in restaurants, schools,kindergartens, hospitals, retirementhomes or in private homes, the liftsgenerally terminate in a kitchen.

    A simple dumbwaiter is amovable frame in a shaft,dropped by a rope on a pulley,

    guided by rails; mostdumbwaiters have a shaft, cart,and capacity smaller than thoseof passenger elevators, usually45 to 450 kg (100 to1000 lbs.) Before electricmotors were added in the 1920s,dumbwaiters were controlledmanually by ropes on pulleys.

    Window type

    Window type dumbwaiter is

    installed at the height of a man'swaist, so that users canconveniently use the dumbwaiter.This type is commonly found inlibraries, offices, restaurants,kitchens, and other places. It isnormally used to carry books,documents, kitchen utensils, foodand beverages, and other goods.

    Large type

    This type of dumbwaiter has alarge cab with an external

    manual gate and it is similar toa normal freight elevator, butthere are no buttons inside thecar. Some large dumbwaitersmay have an interior light.Passengers are usually notallowed to enter or ride it forsafety reason. Button panel islocated on the outside, oftenhas a digital floor indicator.

    14200 ELEVATORS

     The elevator (or lift in theCommonwealth excluding Canada)is a type of vertical transport

    equipment that efficiently movespeople or goods between floors(levels,decks) of a building,vessel or other structure.Elevators are generally poweredby electric motors that eitherdrive traction cables orcounterweight systems like ahoist, or A set of lifts in thelower level of a LondonUnderground station.

    Hydraulic elevators - Hydraulicdrive systems have a motor-pump unit which suppliespressurized fluid via flexiblehoses to a hydraulic cylinder.The cylinder provides theelevator car with motionindirectly. An electric motordrives the pump. Control of thesystem is by electro-hydraulicvalves; ascent is driven underpressure and descent undergravity using the weight of theelevator car.

    Design and layout consideration Escalators, like moving walkways, are often powered by

    constant-speed alternating current motors and move at approximately 1–2 feet (0.3–0.6 m) persecond. The typical angle of inclination of an escalator to the horizontal floor level is 30degrees with a standard rise up to about 60 feet (18 m). Modern escalators have single-piecealuminum or stainless steel steps that move on a system of tracks in a continuous loop. Anumber of factors affect escalator design, including physical requirements, location, trafficpatterns, safety considerations, and aesthetic preferences. Foremost, physical factors like thevertical and horizontal distance to be spanned must be considered.

    Landing platform: These two platforms house the curved sections of the tracks, as well as the gears and motors thatdrive the stairs. The top platform contains the motor assembly and the main drive gear, while the bottom holds thestep return idler sprockets.

    Floor plate: It provides a place for the passengers to stand before they step onto the moving stairs. This plate is flushwith the finished floor and is either hinged or removable to allow easy access to the machinery below.

    Truss: The truss is a hollow metal structure that bridges the lower and upper landings. It is composed of two sidesections joined together with cross braces across the bottom and just below the top. The ends of the truss are attachedto the top and bottom landing platforms via steel or concrete supports. The truss carries all the straight track.

     Steps: The steps themselves are solid, one piece, die-cast aluminum or steel. The steps are linked by a continuousmetal chain that forms a closed loop. The front and back edges of the steps are each connected to two wheels. Therear wheels are set further apart to fit into the back track and the front wheels have shorter axles to fit into thenarrower front track.

    Handrail: The handrail provides a convenient handhold for passengers while they are riding the escalator. In anescalator, the handrail is pulled along its track by a chain that is connected to the main drive gear by a series of pulleys

    Deck board: These are used for preventing clothing from getting caught and other such problems.

    Balustrade: The side of an escalator extending above the Steps, which includes Skirt Guard, Interior Panel, DeckBoard and Moving Handrails.

    Tracks: The track system is built into the truss to guide the step chain, which continuously pulls the steps fromthe bottom platform and back to the top in an endless loop.

    The escalator machinery is hidden beneath its steps in what is known as the truss and at the top of the escalator,housed in the truss, is an electric motor which runs the four gears that all escalators have two drive gears oneither side at the top and two return gears on either side at the bottom and the gears have chains that looparound the gears and run down each side of the escalator then they are connected to each step, these chainshelp the steps make their way up, or down, the escalator where the handrails that riders use for balance andsafety on their ride up or down escalators are powered by the same system that powers the steps and finally atthe handrails are essentially long rubber loops connected to the two drive gears at the top of the escalator andpowered by the same electric motor that powers the steps.

    It helps a large no. of people in moving from one place to another at the same time and they reduce the need ofelevator because people would not have to wait for elevator and escalator can carry a large no. of people at thesame time. It is helpful for the people that have pain in their legs and joints i.e it provide comfort to the peopleEscalators are effective when used as a mean of guidance and circulation. Their speed can be adjustied which ishelpful in managing the crowd. When turned off they can be used a staircase.

    A moving walkway or movingsidewalk (American English), known in

    British English asa travelator or travolator is a slowmoving conveyor mechanism thattransports people across a horizontal orinclined plane over a short to mediumdistance. Moving walkways can be usedby standing or walking on them. Theyare often installed in pairs, one foreach direction.

  • 8/19/2019 Conveying Systems.pdfx


    Moving walkways are built in one of two basic styles:

    Pallet type — a continuous series of flat metal plates join together to form a walkway - and are effectivelyidentical to escalators in their construction. Most have a metal surface, though some models have a rubbersurface for extra traction.

    Moving belt — these are generally built with mesh metal belts or rubber walking surfaces over metal rollers. Thewalking surface may have a solid feel or a "bouncy" feel.

    Both types of moving walkway have a grooved surface to mesh with combplates at the ends. Also, nearly allmoving walkways are built with moving handrails similar to those on escalators.

    A hoist is a device used for lifting or lowering a load by means of a drum or lift-wheel around which rope orchain wraps. It may be manually operated, electrically orpneumatically driven and may use chain, fiber orwire rope as its lifting medium. The load is attached to the hoist by means of a lifting hook.
