Powered conveyors are commonly referred to as carousels. They can be found, among other things, in amusement parks, such as the Ferris wheel or roller coasters. They also serve as mechanisms for tourist lifts on the slopes. Anywhere I have to do with cabins hanging on ropes or moving on rails.

maintenance of the cabin conveyor

Cabin and chair conveyors are devices that are part of rope transport and include:

  • circular cableways,
  • shuttle cableways,
  • pulse cableways,
  • chairlifts,
  • gondola and open gondola cableways,
  • funicular railways,
  • single-rope and double-rope railways.

All of the above types are classified as overhead railways. In addition to these, we also have doubled-rope and ropeway-terrain railways.

Like any machine, regardless of its intended use, one of the most important requirements of its use is safety, and they require constant technical inspection and maintenance.

When the equipment is in use, it is subject to ad hoc checks ordered by the Technical Inspection Authority, and these are:

  • learning to operate a chairlift periodic inspections - equipment under full supervision, the time limit is determined individually for each type,
  • inspection tests - equipment subject to limited supervision, the time limit is set individually for each type. Ba it checks compliance with the provisions on technical supervision,
  • ad hoc operational - carried out at a time to suit current needs,
  • ad hoc post-accident or emergency - in the event of a dangerous damage or accident related to use. They are carried out to determine the cause of the problem and prevent it in the future.

In addition, the operator of the machine (in this case, the person controlling the attraction, letting people onto it) is obliged to check the efficiency of the machine before, during and after operation.
