According to the hoist mechanism, there are 4 main types of elevators as follows:
1. Hydraulic Elevators:
Hydraulic elevators employ a piston at the bottom of the elevator to push it to different levels. An electric motor forces oil or any hydraulic fluid to move the piston.
2. Traction Elevators:
Traction elevators are lifted using ropes that pass over a wheel connected to an electric motor. This pulls the rope and lifts the elevator car to the required floor levels.
Traction elevators are of two types:
A) Geared Traction Elevator, B) Gearless Traction Elevator.
3. Climbing elevator:
A climbing elevator is a self-ascending elevator with its own propulsion.
4. Pneumatic Elevators:
Vacuum elevators do not use any cables or pulley systems to operate. Instead, this elevator is a tube in a sealed vacuum arrangement operated by controlling air pressure.
Based on its function there are several types of elevators as follows:
Based on its use there are many kinds of Passenger Elevators.
