Roped-Hydraulic Elevator

Roped Hydraulic Elevator Equipment

Our design innovations can help put wings to your bottom line.

After years of research and development a new model of excellence in the elevator industry appears as Canton Elevator introduces Paragon™ Roped Hydraulic Elevators.  The newest of our advanced holeless hydraulic elevator systems has become the simplest and quickest package on the market to assemble and install.

Paragon™ offers travels from 25- to 80-ft. in 2000 and 2500-lb. capacities and is manufactured using the same principles as our standard hydraulic application.  In high rise hydraulic applications, Paragon™ has become the alternative to the more expensive traction types – requiring no costly drilling and very little overhead.

Servicing the Paragon™ was not forgotten! We made sure that every component is absolutely visible and easily accessible. This essential feature will benefit your customer by providing the prospect of reduced maintenance costs and short downtimes.

Finally, quality is important to our business because we value our customers. The unsurpassed design and the high standards to which we adhere in the manufacturing of our equipment assure quality and attention to the smallest of details in every Paragon™ component.

Roped Hydraulic Elevator Equipment

The design utilizes wire ropes in conjunction with two hydraulic jacks to lift the elevator at a 1:2 ratio. For each foot the jack rises, the elevator rises two feet.

Advantages:

  • Jack hole is not required. Eliminating the cost of drilling and the risk of ground contamination from oil leak.
  • Offered in both low and high capacity elevators.
  • Accommodates front and rear opening configurations.
  • Available with higher travels up to approximately 90’-0”.
  • Minimal pit and overhead requirements.

Additional Specs

Pit Depth = 4′-0″
Standard Cab Height = 8′-0″
Speed available to 150 FPM
Minimum Overhead ≤ 100 FPM = 12′-1″
Minimum Overhead > 150 FPM = 12′-4″

Disadvantages:

  • May require a larger hoistway width to accommodate jacks mounted on either side of the platform.
  • Governor access door is required in the overhead unless a special governor is provided.
  • Side openings are not an option.
  • Material cost and installation time is typically higher when compared to an in-ground application.

Traction Elevators

OHT CAR TYPE SUMMARY

This design utilizes a geared traction machine, along with the controller and governor, mounted in a penthouse machine room directly over (above) the hoistway. This application uses hoist ropes and counterweights, to move the car, in lieu of a hydraulic jack. The counterweights can be positioned at the rear of the car (front open only), or at the side of the car. In addition to the main rails, a set of counterweight frame rails are also required.

Advantages

Advantages to using this design include a much faster speed capability, an unlimited travel range, as well as a higher power efficiency than hydraulic car types. In addition, there is no hydraulic oil being used.

Disadvantages

Disadvantages include a substantially higher material cost than hydraulic car types, along with a higher field installation cost. In addition, a higher OH is required (typically 16ft) along with a penthouse machine located over the hoistway.

The penthouse machine room can be eliminated, by positioning the geared machine next to the side of the hoistway at one of the landings. This arrangement is referred to as a basement machine application, also requiring additional hoistway sheaves and machine beam support at the landing location of the machine.

Based on car speed of 200 FPM Cab Height = 8’-0”
For seismic applications add 3” to hoistway width.
Speeds exceeding 200 FPM require additional overhead and pit depth. Minimum pit depth is based on the use of spring buffers. Add 5” to pit depth if oil buffers are required or car speed exceeds 200 FPM.
225 FPM = add 6” of overhead and 5” of pit depth 250 FPM = add 7” of overhead and 5” of pit depth 300 FPM = add 8” of overhead and 5” of pit depth 350 FPM = add 10” of overhead and 5” of pit depth

Hoistway dimensions are not for final construction purposes. National & local code years & variations may affect sizes shown. All dimensions should be verified with Delaware Elevator prior to construction.

DEM can provide not only standard sizes as outlined above but also non-standard or custom sizes. Please consult DEM for details.
