Abstract

The invention relates to a torque limiting coupling for a traction sheave of a hoisting machine such as an elevator. The torque limiting coupling comprises a traction sheave (140, 240) and a brake wheel (101, 201). The brake wheel has a friction surface (136, 138, 268) arranged to be in contact with a traction sheave (140, 240) of a hoisting machine. The friction surface (136, 138, 268) allows a friction limited rotation of the traction sheave (140, 240).

Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION Field of the invention:
  • The invention relates to hoisting machines, and hoisting machine braking. Particularly, the invention relates to a torque limiting coupling for a hoisting machine.
  • Description of the Related Art:
  • When the movement of an elevator car must be stopped, it is necessary that the elevator car stops within the limit of maximum deceleration that is not to be exceeded. In normal operating mode, the elevator car is stopped smoothly by an elevator drive control. In emergency or power failure cases an elevator is stopped immediately using elevator brakes. However, too high deceleration could cause injuries for passengers inside an elevator car. Maximum limits for deceleration are thus set in elevator safety standards to mitigate the risk of injuries.
  • In prior art elevators the brakes used in power failure or emergency situations are arranged to stop the movement of the traction sheave directly. The deceleration of the elevator car is rendered smoother by a slight sliding of the elevator ropes or belt over the traction sheave. The sliding is enough to ensure that the deceleration is not too high, that is, to ensure that an elevator car does not stop too abruptly. The friction coefficient between the ropes and the traction sheave grooves may be, for example, 0.12.
  • New traction means materials are being introduced to rope or belt elevator systems. By traction means may be meant, for example, ropes or belts. Examples of new traction means materials comprise polyurethane covered traction means, carbon fiber enforced polyurethane traction means, synthetic fiber traction means, synthetic fiber polypropylene traction means, synthetic fiber polyamide traction means, synthetic fiber aramid traction means, polypropylene covered traction means, carbon fiber enforced polyurethane traction means, steel core polyurethane traction means or metal covered traction means. The friction coefficient between the traction means and the traction sheave grooves may be, for example, between 0.8 and 1 with the new traction means materials. A benefit of the new traction means materials is increased energy efficiency for the traction.
  • A problem with the new traction means materials and the increased friction coefficient between the traction sheave and the traction means is the inhibited sliding of the elevator traction means over the traction sheave. Therefore, it would be beneficial to have a solution that limits the deceleration.

    DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE EMBODIMENTS:
  • Reference will now be made in detail to the embodiments of the present invention, examples of which are illustrated in the accompanying drawings.
  • Figure 1 illustrates an elevator deceleration control device 100 with friction material arranged on brake wheel in one embodiment of the invention in one embodiment of the invention.
  • In Figure 1 there is illustrated a cross section of a brake wheel 101 and a traction sheave 140 for an elevator (not shown). The brake wheel 101 may be a rotor wheel of an electrical motor (not shown) of the elevator. Brake wheel 101 may have a wider outer peripheral portion 102. Brake wheel 101 rotation is stopped with brakes that grab brake wheel 101, for example, with brake pads 110 and 120. Brake pads 110 and 120 may be forced to contact with brake wheel 101 with springs 112 and 122 mounted on supports 114 and 124, respectively. The brake pads 110 and 120 may be held in open position at a distance from brake wheel 101 with the presence of an electrical current provided to an opening device (not shown). If the electrical current is no longer supplied, brake pads 110 and 120 move to closed position grabbing brake wheel 101 by the force of springs 112 and 122, respectively.
  • Brake wheel 101 has an axial protrusion, that is, an axial plug 103. Axial plug 103 is arranged to fit into an axial receptacle or hole, that is, an axial cylinder 144 that traction sheave 140 forms. A surface 104 of axial plug 103 may be in connection with a surface of axial cylinder 144 via a plurality of bearings such as bearings 150, 152, 154 and 156, which may be ball bearings. The surface of axial cylinder 144 forms an inner circumference of traction sheave 140. Traction sheave 140 may comprise a plurality of grooves such as grooves 142 in Figure 1 to fit a plurality of elevator ropes that may be connected to an elevator car (not shown) and a balancing weight (not shown). Traction sheave 140 may be used for traction of a belt in which case there are no grooves for ropes or there is a single groove for the belt. A surface of brake wheel 101 facing traction sheave 140 may comprise at least one friction pad such as friction pads 130 and 132 or a friction surface. The at least one friction pad may be circular and is arranged on the brake wheel coaxially with the axial plug 103. Thus, friction pads 130 and 132 may be a single friction pad.
  • In one embodiment of the invention, the friction surface is an annular ring coaxial with axial plug 103 and comprises ratchet teeth. On the side of traction sheave 140 facing the annular ring there are matching ratchet teeth. The teeth on the opposite sides are held in place until brakes are applied to brake wheel 101.
  • In Figure 1 there is also illustrated a compression member 132, for example, a compression disc or a plate which may be arranged coaxially with axial plug 103. Compression member 132 is arranged to bring traction sheave 140 and brake wheel 101 in closer contact via the friction surface such as friction pads 130 and 132 in order to adjust friction in a friction surface such as friction surfaces 136 and 138. The friction surface may be circular and coaxial with an axis of brake wheel 101. On a surface of the compression member 132 facing traction sheave 132 may be placed at least one spring such as springs 134U and 134L which force traction sheave 140 in tighter contact with friction pads 130 and 132, or a single circular friction surface on brake wheel 101.

Brake wheel 201 rotation is stopped with brakes that grab brake wheel 201, for example, with brake pads 210 and 220. Brake pads 210 and 220 may be forced to contact with brake wheel 201 with springs 212 and 222 mounted on supports 214 and 224, respectively. The brake pads 210 and 220 may be held in open position at a distance from brake wheel 201 with the presence of an electrical current provided to an opening device (not shown). If the electrical current is no longer supplied, brake pads 210 and 220 move to closed position grabbing brake wheel 201 by the force of springs 212 and 222, respectively.
  • Brake wheel 201 has an axial protrusion, that is, an axial plug 203. Axial plug 203 further forms an axial receptacle 204 into which is fitted an axel 270 and bearings 250, 252, 254 and 256, which may be ball bearings, arranged between axel 270 and axial receptacle 204 surface. Axial plug 203 is arranged to seat into an axial hole, that is, an axial receptacle 244 that traction sheave 240 forms. Traction sheave 240 may comprise a plurality of grooves 242 to fit a plurality of elevator ropes that may be connected to an elevator car (not shown) and a balancing weight (not shown). Traction sheave 240 may be used for traction of a belt in which case there are no grooves for ropes or there is a single groove for the belt. Axial plug 203 may comprise a section 206 with uniform diameter. Axial plug 203 comprises a section 205 where the diameter of axial plug 203 decreases in the direction away from the brake wheel. Outer surface of section 205 of axial plug 203 is arranged to fit a corresponding section of traction sheave 240 where the diameter of axial receptacle 244 decreases in the direction away from the brake wheel. Friction contact area 268 is thereby arranged where section 205 of axial plug and corresponding section of axial receptacle 244. In Figure 2 there is illustrated a compression plate 262, for example, an axial plate fixed around axial plug 203. Compression plate 262 comprises at least one bolt 264 extending through compression plate 262 to move traction sheave 240 into closer contact with axial plug 203 via friction contact area 268. Friction normal force F is illustrated with arrow 266.

  • Figure 4 is a flow chart illustrating a method for elevator selection in one embodiment of the invention.
  • At step 400 elevator braking is performed using brakes contacting a brake wheel rotated by an electrical motor, wherein a traction sheave of the elevator and the brake wheel have a friction surface allowing a friction limited movement of the traction sheave and the brake wheel in relation to each other. The braking may be performed by a request of a computer such as an elevator control computer.
  • At step 402 elevator car deceleration is measured using an accelerometer. The accelerometer may be communicatively connected to the computer.
  • At step 404 a deviation is determined from a maximum allowed elevator car deceleration. The deviation may be performed using the computer.
  • At step 406 friction between the brake wheel and the traction sheave is controlled using a compression member arranged to bring the traction sheave and the brake wheel in closer contact via the friction surface in order to adjust friction in the friction surface. The compression member may be controlled by the computer. The friction may be controlled using a screw, bolt or any other adjustment mechanism that brings the traction sheave and the brake wheel in closer contact via the friction surface.
  • Thereupon, the steps 400, 402 and 404 may be repeated to verify the result of the friction controlling step. The method may be repeated if the result is not within desired limits.
  • In one embodiment of the invention, the steps may be performed in the order of numbering.
