Nowadays, hydraulic elevators are highly preferred in residences, factories, shopping malls and villas where there is no machine room inside the buildings.

Hydraulic elevators house a number of components within the elevator shaft. These components include the elevator car, carrier frame, cylinder piston system, suspension and buffers. In some cases a counterweight device can also be used.

Hydraulic elevators are elevator systems that operate by means of a hydraulic pump unit. This type of elevator uses the weight of the elevator car itself when descending. Usually the machine room of hydraulic elevators is located on the ground floor. The engine room contains the oil tank, hydraulic system, control panel and the hoses through which the hydraulic fluid passes.

Hydraulic elevators are suitable for passenger and freight transport purposes. They usually operate at heights between 2 and 6 storeys and speeds can vary between 0.125 m/sec and 1 m/sec. Single-cylinder hydraulic elevators can carry loads from 1,000 kg to 10,000 kg, while double-cylinder hydraulic elevators can carry weights from 10,000 kg to 90,000 kg.

Before implementing the hydraulic elevator system, it is important to consider technical details such as intended use, carrying capacity, travel distance and shaft size.

Machine roomless hydraulic elevators offer advantages such as reduced energy consumption, quiet operation and easy applicability. For this reason, architects and building designers prefer hydraulic elevators for energy efficiency, space saving and user comfort.

Remember, regular maintenance of all types of elevators is of great importance and should be carried out periodically by authorized elevator maintenance companies. Human life is above all else and providing a safe transportation experience is of paramount importance.
