What Is The Elevator Balance Compensation Chain? Why Use A Balanced Compensation Chain

- Sep 20, 2018-

First of all, there is a basic understanding of the elevator system: the elevator is divided into a traction elevator and a hydraulic elevator, and the most commonly used on the market is a traction elevator. Any of the traction elevators includes the following basic components: car, traction wire rope, counterweight, and accompanying cable.

During the operation of the elevator, the length of the wire rope on the car side and the counterweight side is constantly changing, thereby causing a change in the weight of the wire rope on both sides of the traction sheave. When the car is at the lowest landing, the weight of the wire rope is mostly applied to the car side; when the car is at the highest landing, the weight of the wire rope is mostly applied to the counterweight side. This kind of change has little effect on the running performance of the elevator when the lift height is not large, but when the lift exceeds a certain height, it will seriously affect the stability of the elevator operation and endanger the safety of passengers. For this reason, when the lifting height of the elevator exceeds a certain height, it is necessary to set a component with a certain weight to balance the weight change due to the height change, which is the elevator balance compensation chain.

     Therefore, the elevator balance compensation chain is defined as: a component for balancing the weight of the car and the counterweight, balancing the traction rope and the accompanying cable, and balancing the operation of the elevator.
