News about elevators

How often should elevators change in homes?

remont liftov

The National Elevator Union (NLS) proposed to include the replacement of dilapidated elevators in the national project "Housing and urban environment". The NLS proposed the idea of ​​replacing the old lifts with new lifts by including the item "Elevator Maintenance" in the receipts, but this option was not supported by either the Ministry of Construction or the Ministry of Industry and Trade (according to preliminary calculations by the Ministry of Construction, the cost of replacing old elevators in the country will be 150 200 billion rubles).

According to the executive director of the National Elevator Union Peter Kharlamov, the proposal of the DLS means not collecting money from the population, but creating a transparent scheme for paying for the maintenance of the elevator industry. If the replacement of dilapidated elevators is included in the national project, budget money will be allocated to help replace the required number of obsolete lifting mechanisms by 2020. In addition, this will make it possible to outline for the next five years the frequency of repairs to an aging lift park.

"We have no goals to burden the residents. We propose to do this in order to liquidate the arrears of management companies to the organizations servicing elevators, so that this scheme is transparent, approximately the same as with garbage collection. We have no desire to get any additional profit, we just want to get our money. When they go through management companies, not all of the MCs in good faith are calculated with us at the rates that they show to homeowners. For example, if residents pay 35 rubles per square meter for maintaining a house, this amount includes five rubles for maintenance of elevators. Some MCs do not list five rubles, but three, although they report to residents for five. Others don't list anything at all. Without a normal and transparent scheme, we cannot replace 110 thousand elevators, "says Kharlamov.

How many dilapidated elevators in Russia?

According to the National Lift Union (NLS), there are about 440,000 elevators in the housing stock of Russia. Of these, about 110 thousand need to be replaced. If you consider office buildings, medical and educational institutions and industrial enterprises, then the number of elevators that have worked out their resources will be around 130,000. Last year, they replaced 18,000-20,000, but so far there are no exact figures, says Kharlamov.

What is the lifespan of the elevator and how much does it cost to replace it?

The lifespan of the elevator is 25 years. Upon its expiration, the specialists carry out diagnostics, during which they determine how much the elevator meets the safety rules. The examination shows whether it is possible to repair the lifting mechanism or it is time to replace it.
According to estimates of the NLS, 10,000 elevators become obsolete every year in Russia. The cost of replacing and installing each is 2 million rubles.

How to get a replacement lift?

If the elevator regularly fails, you should contact the organization that is engaged in its maintenance, or the management company. Replacing the elevator is possible only after the end of its service life and the decision of the expert committee. If the tenants themselves want to replace the elevator, then they can do it only at their own expense (including on credit).
At their own expense, residents of the house can also replace any parts of the lifting mechanism or carry out its partial repair. To do this, you need to hold a general meeting, and then, if there is a majority of votes, contact the Criminal Code to enter into an agreement with liftovikami to perform the necessary work.

Installation of elevators. SEGP localized the first domestic production of winches for elevators

The Sarapulsky Electrogenerating Plant (SEGP) in Udmurtia was the first in Russia to complete the 100% localization of the production of domestic gear lift winches by launching the mass production of a worm pair, a key element of the lifting mechanism. Now, worm gears of winches are being bought by manufacturers of elevator equipment abroad, so the opening of a new production is another important step in import substitution for Russian elevator factories.

Lift SEGZ 1

In addition, the purchase and maintenance of domestic components are cheaper than imported counterparts, thereby increasing the availability of such an expensive event as replacing an elevator in an apartment building, said first deputy general director and executive director of AEGZ, Alexey Belyaev.

Lift SEGZ 2- This is a very promising direction. Every year in Russia, about 36 thousand elevators change or are installed in new homes. Our production at the first stage is designed to produce 6.5 thousand worm pairs per year, - said Belyaev.

An investment project to expand the production of elevator equipment at the Sarapulsky electric generating plant was initiated by the Board of Directors of the enterprise and supported by the Industry Development Fund (FRP).

- The project is aimed at import substitution of components for the production of domestic elevators. Its total cost was about 500 million rubles, of which 249 million is a soft loan from the Industry Development Fund. The company purchased high-tech equipment for borrowed funds, which made it possible to expand the production of elevator equipment, "commented Roman Petrutsa, director of the FER.

Having started the production of a worm pair, the Sarapulsky Generating Plant fully localized the production of elevator winches at its enterprise. To achieve this, the Group has been cooperating with large elevator factories since 2004, and first of all mastered the production of electric motors. At present, the plant has already produced about 75 thousand engines for a total amount of more than 1.2 billion rubles.

Lift SEGZ 3- During this period, we mastered our own production gearbox, traction shears, brake pulleys, an electromagnet, and the last product is a worm pair. In addition to the main assemblies from which the winch is assembled, there are also rubber products, a fan, housings, hardware products - this is all produced at the factory. We did not have a single rejection of the supplied winches. We are proud of it, and our technical and production competencies are ready to develop, so that our winch is not inferior to its Western counterparts, - said Belyaev.

In the past three years alone, a subsidiary of SEGP LLC "Wellift" doubled the production of gear winches. In 2017, there were 2,300 of them, this year they plan to release about 4,000, and for 2019, the goal is to increase the figure to 6,000. Since 2012, more than 10,000 elevator winches have been sold worth more than a billion rubles. New technological equipment of the plant allows in the shortest possible time to complete the full cycle of manufacturing components and parts.

Next Sarapulsky generator plant is preparing to begin the serial production of gearless elevator winches. They are smaller in size, consume little electricity, do not make so much noise and do not need to be installed in a large elevator machine room. Due to the production of winches, SEGP increases the share of civilian output. Now in the composition of the products shipped, this figure reaches 20 percent, whereas three years ago it was only eight percent. However, the winches are not the only civilian products of the plant.

- There are other areas that we successfully deal with and intend to engage in - for example, the development of outdoor electric vehicles. Just over 10 years ago, we began to explore the direction of explosion-proof engines. Today we supply them to oil and gas workers, and we occupy about a third of the Russian market, "concluded Alexei Belyaev.

Deputy Minister of Construction and Housing and Utilities - Chief State Housing Inspector of Russia Andrei Chibis, who attended the official opening of the new production line, noted that the market for domestic elevator winches is very promising.

Lift SEGZ 5

- The overhaul program, which was hard to launch, has an effect not only in the form of renovated houses and working elevators, but also in the form of an incentive for the development of our industry. It is great that in Udmurtia, in Sarapul, production appeared where the production of winch equipment is localized, and now it supplies it to our American partners. This indicates a high quality product. I hope that in the near future the Udmurt enterprise will be one of the key suppliers of elevator equipment in the country. It is fundamentally important that the winch is the main and most dangerous part of the elevator, it is done here, it is worth a lot, - said Andrei Chibis.
