This course begins with a review of basic pneumatic and hydraulic theory and components. It proceeds to offer a deeper look at some practical applications of pneumatics and hydraulics and the control devices and design needed to implement various applications. Particular attention is paid to hydraulic and pneumatic applications that occur in elevators and escalators. The use of pneumatic and hydraulic schematics as a troubleshooting device is also used.
Course 213, Elevator-Specific Principles of Operation, assists the participant in demonstrating a working knowledge of the principles of elevator operation in a public transit system. This course covers such principles as general safety procedures; hydraulic, electric traction and machine room-less elevators; door systems; control systems; as well as provides the participant with an introduction to code specifications that are the standards for elevator operation.
Course 218, Elevator-Specific Hydraulic Elevators, assists the participant in demonstrating a working knowledge of the way a transit hydraulic elevator works including its control system and components. A very introductory look is also taken at maintenance of a transit hydraulic elevator. This will be covered more in depth in a later course.
The purpose of this document is to provide technical instructors with resources to deliver a course in Hydraulic and Pneumatic Fundamentals that meets the requirements of the Transit Elevator-Escalator Maintenance Training Standards. The curriculum includes general summary information, lists of recommended courseware and supporting material, an overall course outline with an estimated instructional time breakdown by module, and outlines, objectives and lesson plans for each module.
This course provides participants with the essential steps for inspecting and maintaining friction brakes on transit rail cars.Course participants engage in a series of activities that help them prepare to work on friction brakes in a maintenance facility for passenger rail cars. Content is supplemented with examples to support participants’ successful application of the course content to their work. This course is organized into six modules. Please note that Module 2 is specific to pneumatic braking and Module 3 to hydraulic braking. The course instructor may choose to use one or both of these modules depending on their training needs.
