An economy solution for low-rise and hydraulic elevators.
Model E Roller Guides provide an economical, ride-quality-oriented solution for light- to moderate-capacity hydraulic elevators. Their light weight and compact design make for easy installation. Although Model E guides are not spring-loaded, they remain adjustable within a 1/8″ (3mm) range (on eccentric mounting bolts), and they employ the same ride-quality-improving neoprene wheels as the rest of the ELSCO line.
Neoprene Rubber Roller Wheelsare specially compounded and rigorously tested to ensure a smooth, silent ride. Only genuine ELSCO neoprene wheels provide the damping characteristics essential to ride quality, and only genuine ELSCO wheels are engineered with high “memory” characteristics that prevent flat spots. ELSCO rollers are precision ground to within .002 inches (,051mm) “Total Indicator Reading” for perfect roundness and concentricity, then 100% inspected under stress to ensure a secure bond between tire and hub.
Durable Structural ComponentsELSCO castings are made from hightensile-strength ductile iron and aluminum for an optimal combination of strength, durability, and light weight. High quality guide hardware ensures long life and ease of adjustment in the field. All components are inspected and assembled to exacting standards for a lifetime of reliable performance”
Precision Ball Bearingsguarantee years of silent use. ELSCO specifies bearings intended for the high RPMs and demanding loads of electric motors – conditions far more rigorous than typically seen in elevator applications. This means that even after years of operation and tens of millions of cycles, only ELSCO roller wheels remain completely silent. Each bearing bore is machined to a tolerance of three ten-thousandths (.0003) of an inch (,0076mm), and two bearings are pressed into each wheel by a computer-driven press, ensuring perfect fit and alignment.
Eccentric Wheel Axle Boltsallow each wheel to be adjusted within a 1/8" (3mm) range. This eases installation, and helps to compensate for misaligned rails or unbalanced cars.
