ABSTRACT
An escalator is a moving staircase conveyor transport device for carrying people between floors of a building. The device consists of a motor-driven chain of individual, linked steps that move up or down on tracks, allowing the step treads to remain horizontal.
Escalators are used around the world to move pedestrian traffic in places where elevators would be impractical. Principal areas of usage are; shopping malls, airports, transit systems, convention centers, hotels, and public buildings.
The benefits of escalators are many. They have the capacity to move large numbers of people, and they can be placed in the same physical space as one might install a staircase. They have no waiting interval (except during very heavy traffic), they can be used to guide people toward main exits or special exhibits, and they may be weatherproofed for outdoor use.
Escalators are one of the largest, most expensive machines people use on a regular basis, but they're also one of the simplest.
 At its most basic level, an escalator is just a simple variation on the conveyer belt. A pair of rotating chain loops pull a series of stairs in a constant cycle, moving a lot of people a short distance at a good speed
The escalator that was designed for this project work was designed at an inclination angle of 30 deg.

    INTRODUCTION Each machine consists in principle of three basic parts: a motor or another prime mover (that sets the machine in motion), an actuating mechanism (which is directly doing the needed work: digs a ditch, weaves cloth, peels potatoes, propels a ship, and so on), and a transmission that connects the first two parts. Sometimes, the... Continue Reading
    Azeotropic distillation of ethanol-water mixture is accomplished by adding a volatile third component to the liquid which changes the volatility of one of the two components more than the other so the components are separated by distillation. The two components to be separated often have similar boiling point components which do or do not... Continue Reading
