automatic escalator of Rhine group is an integration
of high-technology and new design, it is widely
used in airports, subways, railways, big shopping
malls, and hotels. Running speed is between 0.45゛1m/s,
and the transportation capacity is 4500゛13500
Nice Appearance and comfortable Feeling
Beautiful handrails and stylish side-boards convey
a feeling of elegance and beauty. They can be
matched to different building surroundings. Gear
retarder with high precision, anti-noise chain
gears, guiding rails, new-typed steering parts,
and other new material and new technologies make
the series escalator of Rhine running stable and
with low noise and conveying a feeling of comfort
Safety and Reliability
Since the escalator has specific demands with
regard to passenger loads and long working hours,
there are strict requirements to the safe performance
of the escalator. In order to ensure the safe
running of the escalator with high efficiency,
the bellowed safety technology is used:
| 1. Transmitting safe
parts: It can cut off the power of motor and braking
system when there is a break or an over-pulling
of the driving chains. The manual operation can
stop down sliding of the escalator.
2. Stepping chain safe parts:
|It can cut off the powe of motor and braking system
if there is abreak or an over-pulling of the stepping chains.
3. Handrail entrance safe parts: If there is anything inserted
to the handrail entrance, the power of motor and braking system
can be cut off accordingly.
4. Electromagnetic brakes of the driving part:: this is
a brake with manual closing and electromagnetic loosing. It
can reliably control the up and down activity of the escalator.
The input shaft installed in the retarder can automatically
stop the escalator if there is a power cut-off of the driving
5. Speed limitor: The input shaft installed in the retarder
can cut off the power of the motor and the brake if the speed
of the escalator diverses for more than 20% of the rated speed.
6. Skirt board safe part: If there is anything inserted
in the place between the steps and the skirt board, the power
of the driving motor and the brake can be cut off.
7. Curve guiding rail safe part: If there is anything between
two steps, or between the top / botom curving part step and
the skirt board while going down, the power of driving motor
and brake can be cut off.
| 8. Step sinking safe
part: If there is a breaking of any shaft, and the combing
tooth cannot be meshed, it can cut off the power of the driving
motor ad the brake, and the sinking step cannot reach the
intersection line of the combing tooth.
9. Non-operation reversing protection: If the escalator
accidentally runs in a
|reverse direction, the power of the motor and brake
can be cut off. This function is included in the speed
10. Handrail entrance protecting cover: In order to
avoid any incidence, there is a soft rubber cover at
the entrance of the moving handrail.
11. Emmergency stoping button: It is at the top and
the bottom of the entrance of the escalator; pushing
either button will cut off the power of the driving
motor and brake.
12. Combing board safe switch: If anything is between
the combing board and the steps, the power of the motor
and brake can be cut off.
13. Handrail belt switch: it Checks the loosing degree
and breaks of the handrail belt, and can cut off the
power of the motor and brake.
14. Auxiliary brake: It is in the top room. If the
running speed is 20% below or over the rated speed,
it can cut off the power of the motor and brake.
Save Resource and Space
With the installation of the retarder with high
precision and special chain support, the wear and
tear while running is expressively reduced, so the
power consumption is reduced accordingly. Compared
to the traditional automatic escalator with the same
specification, the energy saving of Rhein lift can
reach 30%. Due to the high intensity and compact structure,
no middle supporting column is necessary for escalators
with height under 6 m, so space is saved as well.
The new type vertical driving system supplies enough
space for maintenance work; New typed support makes
it more easy to assemble and disassemble the steps;
The handrail driving part can regulate the tension
force of the chain, it makes the replacement of the
parts of the shaft and handrail more convenient; the
automatic lubricant part can reduce the labour of
manual oil filling, at the same time, it can ensure
the lubricating demand coming from each section of
the automatic escalator. Thus it can increase the
life of the escalator.
