Water Damage Causes Elevator Shut Down
The Maple Office building in Troy, MI is a two-story, 21,000 square foot building that leases office space to multiple businesses. When their machine room experienced water damage, the elevator was no longer in service.
MEI quickly went out, surveyed the job and realized many components needed to be replaced in order to get the elevator back in working condition. After getting the approval to proceed with the recommended upgrades, MEI got parts ordered and started the job as soon as they were able.
In the machine room, the controller was replaced with a Vertitron controller and solid-state starter. MEI also replaced wiring and installed a new submersible power unit. MEI replaced and installed a GAL door operator, hall stations, door gibs, fire tabs and Innovation fixtures. In the hoistway, the cartop station was replaced along with limit switches, pit ladder and wiring to accommodate the new system.
After the modernization was complete, the 2,000 lb. passenger elevator was back up and running. This project met all customer expectations when it came to getting the project completed on time.
The MEI team that worked on this project include Account Manager Jerry Solomon, Mechanic Todd Parker and Apprentice Joe Meier.
