When we are talking about elevators, I believe you have seen such a type of elevator in many factories and restaurants that are under renovation: it can freely transport goods between the floors of the factory and the restaurant, and there is no need for lifting points on the upper part. That’s right, it is a guide rail type hydraulic cargo elevator. It is unlike traction motor or electric motor elevators, it is hydraulic system lift platform for cargo and goods delivery. Today, we will focus on introducing this kind of lifting equipment in the decoration. If you are interested, please follow the editor!


What is a hydraulic cargo elevator?


The guide rail type hydraulic cargo elevator is a simple structure type hydraulic mechanical equipment, which is widely used in construction sites and other places. Its minimum height is between 1.5-3m, but its applicable occasions have greater restrictions, such as in the workplace where pits are excavated, it is not suitable. Although in appearance, guide rail cargo elevators are divided into single-column, double-column and multi-column, and the forms are very diverse, the number of columns does not affect the smooth operation of the equipment. The operation is still the same simple and reliable.


Advantages of hydraulic cargo elevator.


For the guide rail elevator, due to its hydraulic characteristics, when the power supply fails, the car can automatically descend to the nearest floor position and open the door immediately, so the safety and stability are much higher than other elevators. The cost of the hydraulic system is also very low, and the advanced nature of the hydraulic system keeps its failure rate in a low state, thus reducing many later maintenance costs.


Furthermore, the guide rail cargo lift has the civil construction advantages that other lifts do not have. Above the shaft, the guide rail lift does not require a special machine room, and it only needs to be 3 meters higher than the top floor before it can be installed and used. Finally, let’s talk about the stability of the hydraulic lift. Since it has an overflow valve, when the elevator moves upward, if the pressure of the system is too high, the overflow valve can be effectively controlled. Secondly, its operating cost also has certain advantages. When the hydraulic elevator goes down, its own weight can generate a great pressure drive, so it can achieve the purpose of energy saving.




Hydraulic system cargo elevator is a better and more simple choice if you have few budget. You can install it in your home, in plant, in workshops, and in other industrial places. As long as you know your request for its lifting height, capacity, and platform size, you can purchase one easily. Also, you do not need to worry about the installation. Its installation job is also easier than traction elevator. In other countries, there are some brilliant hydraulic lifts manufacturers you can count on. Will discuss more about hydraulic lifts questions in next articles.
