Abstract
(EN)
The present inventionrelates to an arrangement in the drivemachinery of a travelator, movingwalkway, escalator or similar and amethod for changing the drive beltof the handrail belt of the handrailincorporated in a travelator or similar.In addition to the drive machinery(1), the travelator or similar of theinvention comprises at least onehandrail (13) with handrail belt(12), and which drive machinery(1) comprises at least a drive motor(2), a support element (10) for thehandrail belt (12) and a drive belt (8)connecting the rotational movementof the drive motor (2) to the supportelement (10). The support element isa supporting wheel (10) of essentiallylarge diameter fitted to be used bythe drive belt (8). With the methodaccording to the invention the drivebelt (8) is placed into position byfixing the drive belt (8) to the installation groove (14) on the supporting wheel (10) and rotating the supporting wheel (10) suchthat the drive belt (8) is placed into position around the supporting wheel (10). The support element of the handrail belt (12) of thehandrail (13) of the travelator, moving walkway, escalator or similar according to the invention is a supporting wheel (10), whichcontains a coupling element (14) for coupling and installing the drive belt (8) of the supporting wheel (10) onto the rim of thesupporting wheel in connection with placing the drive belt (8)onto position.
