Energy Efficient Elevators
ECOFLUID = Low energy bill
Less Co2 in the atmosphere
To be highly energy efficient, an elevator must have:
A) the lowest energy consumption possible while moving, both during upward and downward running.
B) nearly no energy consumption or no energy consumption at all when in stand-by.
A research has been recently carried out to quantify how much energy elevators actually consume. Measurements were made on a representative selection of working elevators. Mr. Mazzoni, engineer at SMS company, in Bologna, has contributed to this research as an expert consultant. Measurements were taken in an analytical way on a sample of lifting systems working differently:
• geared elevators and next-generation gearless elevators
•standard hydraulic elevators,
•hydraulic elevators with counterweight
For each elevator, measurements were taken on its energy consumption both in Running, and in Stand-By mode, as well as the power consumption of its car lighting. Once the collected data were processed, a detailed document was prepared on a sample of the tested elevators: “CALCULATION OF ANNUAL ENERGY CONSUMPTION OF ELEVATORS”
As shown in the table, the hydraulic elevator Ecofluid is absolutely the most efficient, with a good running consumption and a zero/almost zero consumption in stand-by mode, which is decisive for the overall consumption of an elevator. As you can see in the above tables, an elevator spends in stand-by mode 70-80% of its life and, in many cases, up to 23 daily hours.
Ecofluid is a High Energy Efficient elevator, which optimizes its power consumption while moving and consumes zero or almost zero energy while in stand-by mode. This means that it is a sustainable product: it reduces significantly energy consumption as well as CO2 emissions in the atmosphere.
On the other hand, the gearless elevator is the elevator with the highest energy consumption, therefore being the last of the list in our table. Even though it got a good result while in running mode, it turned out to be a big energy waster while in stand-by mode. To give an explicit example, it is like leaving your car parked with the pedal to the metal.
Below you will find the main technical specifications of the currently available configurations of MBB gearless elevators.
All the advantages at a glance High energy savings for all the elevator life. Smaller electricity meter provided by the electricity supplier, with a subsequent cost saving for the user, who has to pay monthly rental charges.
Minimised maintenance costs
Simple and rapid emergency operations, which are always to be performed outside the elevator well, even by a well-informed but not qualified person, without any special tools.
