In a principle to establish the difference between elevator and elevator , it is necessary to clarify what is each and its functions. For this, each of the concepts will be described.
What is an elevator?
Elevators are complex system tools . These tools have their purpose in the transport of cargo, mainly human cargo. However, these lifts need a significant electrical expense, this is because the elevators work by means of an electric drive motor , by means of a pump that dispenses a hydraulic fluid to a cylinder system. This system is the one that will work in the movement of the elevator .
There is a considerable variety of elevators , the use that will be granted to each will depend on the building where it should be installed . In this category are lifts for people with special care , these people can be disabled or disabled. However, the elevators implemented for this type of situation must be specialized for the condition of the person.
The elevators have certain speed, this is one of the clearest differences before the elevators. The speed of the elevators by regulation must be greater than 0.15 m / s , thanks to this the elevators can reach up to 1 or 2 m / s in their speed . However, as previously mentioned, the energy expenditure required by the elevators is moderate, therefore, an elevator must work with three-phase electric power . The maintenance of these tools must be continuous and detailed.
What is an elevator?
The elevator is nothing more than a vehicle or tool that is used to move objects up, down or lateral displacements . Everything will depend on the need of the client or applicant. The energy consumption of these devices is low, thanks to this it can be used by single-phase electric power. Its main difference with respect to the elevators is the speed with which it is implemented, the elevators must have a speed lower than 0.15 m / s . This is due to the regulations. Thanks to the fact of being a kind of simple vehicles, its maintenance is more basic, fast and durable.
The function of elevators will depend on where they need to be deployed , that being said, there is a wide variety of elevators, from elevators for homes to much more robust elevators. These more robust weights could be those that raise or lower large weights, as would a car.
Differences of elevators and elevators in terms of maintenance
The maintenance of an elevator and an elevator
The difference in the area of maintenance is very noticeable because, as for the lifts, their maintenance is more expensive and for shorter periods , that is, an elevator must be checked, inspected and serviced every 6 weeks , varying to the place and displacement as for the floors or floors . This is taken into account with elevators that have a life of less than 20 years.
The process of maintenance in lifts of higher cost is due to having more pieces and moving parts, that is, due to its complexity . In a maintenance process of an elevator it is necessary the meticulous revision of its components, which can be from the mechanical parts to the selection boards.
In the case of elevators , there is a longer duration of maintenance, as well as its greater ease and economy. That said, the elevators should be inspected and maintained every 3 or 4 months , this varies depending on their type and location, and its cost is lower than that of the elevators.
The electrical expenditure of an elevator and an elevator
Another important point to highlight is the expense in terms of electric power , in other words, elevators requiring the use of three-phase electric power generate higher costs for elevators that use single-phase electric power. In addition, in case of not having installations of three-phase electric power (220V-380V) and must perform the installation process, it generates a somewhat high cost compared to some electric power installation of the elevators .
For the correct maintenance and installation of an elevator, it is necessary that a group of professional technicians who inspect the building advise on which is the most efficient elevator and the most correct for this work . For this reason, Astarlifts - Eninter are committed to offering a quality and efficient service for each circumstance.
Difference of elevators and elevators in terms of speed and regulations
As already mentioned, the speed at which they work is one of the most noticeable differences between elevator and elevator . The speed of an elevator is greater than 0.15 m / s, and can reach 1 and 2 m / s . While the speed in the elevators is lower than this range, since the maximum speed for the elevators is the minimum of the elevators, that is, 0.15 m / s is the maximum speed that an elevator can present.
The speed measures are governed by a series of regulations already established. These regulations are regulated by the European Elevators Directive (in the case of lifts). The Regulation EN 81.2 in Spain is governed by hydraulic system elevators. On the other hand, for the electrical system it is obeyed by the EN 81.1 Standard .
Meanwhile, in the case of lifts, they are governed by the European Machinery Directive through the EN 81.3 standard , this in the case of cargo transport.
For the installation of a lift or elevator it is very necessary to comply with this regulation . For this reason, it is very important to hire a company that is aware of and is aware of these regulations to avoid future problems.
These regulations are very present for Astarlifts - Eninter , one of the most important manufacturers and installers of elevators in Spain . This range is deservedly earned thanks to compliance with regulations and with excellent quality in terms of materials, work and maintenance.
