The principle operation of the pneumatic vacuum elevator in Austin is based on the ascending push generated by the difference between the atmospheric pressure on the top of the car and the atmospheric pressure under the car.
The depression (vacuum) required to lift the car is achieved by turbines operating as exhaust fans which are located at the top of the elevator, also known as the Suction Assembly or “Head Unit”.
Safety – These elevation units are fully equipped with a full set of car-locking devices for each landing.
In the event of a power failure, the cabin slowly descends to the ground floor, at which point the passenger is able to exit the cabin.
In the event of catastrophic failure and vacuum loss, the main seal forces down on the mechanical safety brakes and the cabin is suspended within two inches of freefall.
