Unlike Ryson’s normal Hybrid Wash down spiral unit, the Ryson all-stainless steel wash down spiral design does not accommodate easy field changes once it’s built for a certain elevation change and configuration. However, if the future changes are known at the time of purchase, we can design them to be easily modified later on.

Custom Stainless Ryson SpiralThat’s the case for this spiral. Our Integrator partner, Packaging Machinery Systems, required a down spiral for their customer (a large poultry processor), transporting empty cases from an automatic case erector on the adjacent mezzanine, down to the manual hand pack stations at a discharge elevation of 50”.

The future plans for the client is to purchase automatic case packers, which require a lower discharge elevation. The Ryson design team came up with a modular base and leg structure that allows the addition of another turn to the spiral, when the new packers are installed. We  shipped the modification “kit” with the machine.

Ryson also designed and built self-contained controls to interface with their case erector and control the speed of the spiral so that each case size would be fed at just the right speed to keep pace with the packing operation. This is the fifth spiral purchased by this end-user.

Please contact Ryson if you would like additional information on our Spiral Conveyors and how they could be beneficial to your conveying needs.

One of the many benefits of the Ryson proprietary modular design is that we can extend the spirals lower section (the infeed in the case of an up spiral, or at the out feed of a down spiral). This comes in handy when placing the spiral into an existing layout, where our integrator needs to fill in the gap between existing line conveyors and machinery. This is common when we’re replacing vertical case elevators and it allows us to swap that less-reliable, less flexible, lower throughput technology with our less complex, high throughput conveyor over a weekend.

Ryson Extended infeed

Ryson spiral conveyors can be custom built with an extended infeed/outfeed to better fit into existing layouts.

The photo shows one of our Hybrid stainless steel washdown spirals that was designed to fit into an existing line layout. The extended infeed also saved our Integrator partner, Kaufman Engineered Systems, an additional section of driven conveyor, saving on additional implementation cost and higher on-going energy costs. This spiral was also outfitted with a pre-wired motor disconnect switch, another way we save our integrators on field wiring expenses.

This is one way that Ryson equipment can lower your over-all cost of ownership. To find out more, please visit www.ryson.com.

Ryson Classroom Training

Ryson hosted Fredy Acosta for Integrator Training which included Classroom and Hands-on learning.

This week we are providing training for Ropim Intralogistica, one of our integrator partners located in Bogota, Columbia.

Ryson Shop TrainingThe training was a combination of classroom and hands-on training. The classroom training included how to best integrate, install and maintain the Ryson Spiral Conveyors. Then we followed up with practical hands-on training in our manufacturing plant. The training was conducted in Spanish and presented a good opportunity for some of Ryson’s staff to practice their Spanish skills.
Ryson is committed to quality and service and to properly train our integration partners is an important element of that commitment. For more information of installation or service, visit our website at www.ryson.com.

This week Ryson hosted an FAT (Factory Acceptance Test) for the project and engineering managers from our Integrator partner Shuttleworth. They visited our manufacturing plant to inspect six spiral conveyors that will be added to new production lines at a major food company. This company already has several Ryson Spirals in operation.

Ryson FAT

Ryson welcome factory acceptance test at their manufacturing plant in Yorktown, Virginia.

Repeat business is one way we measure success in our markets. During our last fiscal year the majority of Spirals delivered were repeat orders. It is a sure sign that companies are satisfied with the Ryson brand and confident in our commitment to quality, longevity and customer support.

You can read about the original order here. If you would like more information about Ryson’s vertical conveying solutions, please visit www.ryson.com.

Ryson MOVIMOT Mount

The SEW MOVIMOT motor eliminates the need for a variable frequency drive in the control enclosure.

One of our integrator partners had a challenge when looking to expand an existing control system they were adding a Ryson spiral conveyor to. The control enclosure did not have enough room to add another VFD’s (variable frequency drive), which is needed to properly control the spiral, so Ryson found a perfect solution for them, an SEW MOVIMOT.

For variable speed needs, the MOVIMOT is a frequency inverter mounted directly onto the motor, which eliminates the need for costly shielded cables from a typical VFD to the motor. Unlike many frequency inverters, MOVIMOT achieves it’s sophisticated control through DIP switch settings and requires no electronic set-up at all. Using the dip switches, parameters such as acceleration and deceleration can be set.  SEW frequency inverters and motors are designed to work together – including integrated motor break controls, so no motor tuning is necessary.

These inverters are available in a 0.5 hp to 5 hp range. This also can also simplify and reduce the cost of integration and eliminate the need for a controls enclosure. For more information, visit www.ryson.com.

 This week, Ryson is shipping a custom spiral conveyor, built to solve layout challenges in an existing system.

Short Ryson SpiralOur Integrator partner – GC Evans needed to line up their client’s new case packer to some existing conveyors. The application is for a major brewery’s new can line in an old building with a lot of special angles. The spiral’s infeed needed to meet some non-standard tangent angles to link the new and existing parts of the line together, both at different elevations.

The Ryson spiral conveyor is ideal for this, because of it’s high throughput capabilities and modular construction. It allows the end-user a very reliable solution for vertical conveying of the packaged product on it’s way to the palletizer. The spiral shipped on a skid in one piece, streamlining the implementation of the system at the site.

Ryson two-piece spiral conveyor

Ryson Spirals can be custom configured to better fit in tight spaces.

This week Ryson is shipping a custom spiral to a meat processing plant in Kentucky. During the integration review conference call with our Integrator Partner – BoxLogix Automation, his client and the electrical controls engineer, it was determined that there was a low hanging interference above the installation spot. This would prevent the spiral from being lifted into position fully assembled.

The Ryson design team re-designed the spiral to ship in two sections, which would allow the installer to hoist the upper section in the air, while positioning the lower section, then bolting the two  sections together. This spiral was also pre-wired, reducing the implementation time on site. One of our service technicians will assist the millwrights on site in the installation effort, assist in the start-up of the spiral and train the end-user’s maintenance and operations staff in the care and use of the machine.

Ryson is dedicated to work with our integration partners to find effective solutions for vertical conveying. If you have an application, the Ryson Spiral Team would be happy to assist with questions and design suggestions. For more information, please visit www.ryson.com.
