The Ryson Wide Trak Spiral can add line compatibility in applications where different sized products are conveyed.The Ryson Wide Trak Spiral can add line compatibility in applications where different sized products are conveyed.

A perfect example is this spiral that was recently installed for a frozen pizza manufacturer. The pizzas are presented to our 30” wide slat surface either single file (for the large pies) or two-abreast (for the smaller ones). A simple diverter at the discharge conveyor directs them to the correct exit route, based on which size they are running at the time.

We specified our new Wide Trak model 2200-760 to accept over-wrapped pizzas from the freezer discharge, down nine feet to the packaging line. We see a great deal of applications where there’s a need to decline from a spiral freezer.

This Wide Trak was built in our hybrid stainless steel version. The spiral runs between 150 and 200 FPM and has an optional inside guide rail.

Next week we ship this special Wide Trak Spiral to a food manufacturer in the Midwest. It is designed to operate in a wet environment.

Stainless Steel Wide Trak Spiral to Operate in Wet EnvironmentThis spiral is the stainless steel version of our new Wide Trak model 2200-760. It features a 30” wide slat surface and stainless steel bearings, which allows it to operate in a wet environment.

The spiral is a incline conveyor, elevating frozen wrapped pizzas from a spiral freezer discharge at 3’-0” up to mezzanine packaging operation at a 12′ – 0″. The pizzas run single file or two abreast at rates up to 120 per minute. The Ryson Wide Trak Spiral models feature either a 30” or 36” wide conveying surface. This model spiral is perfect for this kind of freezer application.

 The spiral will be shipped partially disassembled so that the largest sections can fit through passageways and under the newly installed drop ceiling in the installation area. The spiral will be re-assembled on site by one of our experienced service technicians, along with the on-site installers.

Modex 2018 logoThis week Ryson is exhibiting at Modex 2018 in Atlanta. 

This show is our biggest show to reach our logistics, warehousing and distribution industry customers and integrators.

We are running our new Wide Trak Spiral Conveyor in our booth. This spiral can have a slat width of up to 36 inches. It is in our family of High Capacity Spirals that can optionally be configured with our proprietary induction and divert-out conveyors that allow loads to enter or exit the spiral at intermediate elevations. This is a clear space-savings advantage for companies that have multi-tiered product flow.

The multiple entry ability is most often utilized in two main areas:

In the manufacturing and packaging market, an induction conveyor is typically installed at ground level, near the Spiral’s infeed. This configuration simply allows flow from separate production lines to feed a single spiral.

In the distribution and warehousing industry it is most often used to feed materials from a multi-tiered mezzanine onto a single spiral. (see drawing on left). This is an ideal application and an efficient use of space when compared to traditional methods.

MODEX provides attendees access to the latest manufacturing and supply chain equipment and technologies. MODEX 2018 will be held April 9-12, 2018 in the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA.

The Ryson Wide Trak Spirals with Induction Conveyor options are getting attention at distribution centers. The wide trak spiral boasts our widest slat width and can reach elevations up to 50′. It is ideal for a multi-tiered order picking modules or warehouses.

Wide Trak Spirals With Induction Conveyor

This week we are building two (2) identical Wide Trak Spirals with induction conveyors that will be shipped to a major footwear designer and distributor on the west coast for our Integrator Partner, Honeywell Intelligrated.

The spiral model 2200-760 is elevating open cases 18’. Both the spirals will be supplied by two different production lines , with one at the ground level and a second one at an elevation of 13’ feet. This intermediate elevation will utilize our new induction conveyors.

The new induction conveyor powered roller design is individually adjustable to match the spiral pitch, assuring a safe and reliable product transfer. The spirals will run at 200 feet per minute.

The Ryson Wide Trak Spiral Conveyors are perfect for such an application due to the size of the products,  the largest being 32″x24″x30″ along with their high capacity and throughput capabilities.

The 30″ wide conveying surface is ideal for larger items as well as boxes/totes of varying sizes, which is common order fulfillment operations. The induction conveyor configuration allows loads to enter the spiral at intermediate elevations, allowing for example load entry at all levels of a mezzanine into a single spiral. This ability drastically reduces the footprint needed for vertical conveying.

An increasing number of Ryson Spirals are equipped with our proprietary induction and divert conveyor design that allows loads to enter or exit the spiral at intermediate elevation levels.

Ryson Induction and Divert Conveyor

Ryson 30″ and 16″ wide induction conveyors

The Ryson Induction and Divert conveyors are designed as an integral part of our multiple infeed or outfeed spirals. In addition to our belt-type induction conveyors, we have also developed new versions utilizing powered rollers. With 2 options now available, we are able to provide the optimal Induction and Divert Conveyor solution depending on the size and shape of the load that will be handled.

Both belt and roller versions are individually adjustable to match the spiral pitch, assuring a safe and reliable product transfer. These induction conveyors are available for all High Capacity and Wide Trak models and match their 16″, 24″, 30″ and 36″ wide slat widths.

The core Ryson concept is to vertically convey using minimum floorspace. Although the concept is simple, it can be used in countless applications.

Ryson Concept Vertical ConveyingThe Ryson Concept has two main kinds of spirals. A Unit Load Type, and a Mass Flow Type. The unit load Spiral Conveyors smoothly handle boxes, totes, trays and cases and the Mass Flow Spirals convey materials such as cans, bottles and jars in bulk mass. They both come in standard capacity and high capacity – for applications that require extra throughput, weight handling or elevation change. The High Capacity Spirals can optionally be equipped with intermediate infeed or discharge locations, ideal for multi tiered order picking applications.

Much of ryson’s business is in two main categories: Packaging /food & beverage / personal care products and warehousing / oder picking / distribution. Because of the diversity of applications, Ryson has developed several standard slat widths and each model’s footprint size is based on that.

It will ask you many questions about the application’s requirements. The Ryson sales team will then figure out the best model and have a quote to you within 24 hours. You can also download this sizing chart and RFQ form for your reference.

The new Ryson Wide Trak Spirals are in response to our customers’ need to handle bigger loads and reach higher elevations.

Ryson Wide Trak Spirals ConveyorThese spirals can handle a variety of load sizes, big and small with their 30′ wide slats. They are ideal for warehousing and order picking operations.

The Wide Trak Spirals can handle double the weight capacity of our standard spirals, and can provide an elevation change of up to 50 feet with only one drive.

The Wide Trak Spirals can optionally be configured to allow loads to enter and exit the spirals at several intermediate elevations. New special induction and divert out conveyors have individually adjustable conveying surfaces to match the spiral pitch, assuring a safe and reliable product transfer.

The Ryson proprietary slat belt enables a low rolling friction operation without any sliding movements or wear strips. The belt is pulled by a heavy duty steel roller chain and the slats are supported by precision steel roller bearings which ride on a polyurethane surface. This arrangement effectively takes up the side forces created by a tight radius and at the same time increases the load carrying capacity of the belt up to 75 lbs per linear foot. This enables the spirals to start and stop fully loaded and can run at speeds up to 200 fpm. The slats are overlapping and provide a reliable and safe conveying surface.

Ryson Wide Trak spirals Size ChartThe Ryson value proposition is to deliver products with a low total cost of ownership. Ryson Spiral Conveyors need less floor space than conventional conveyors and are also faster and more reliable than any elevator or lift.

All Ryson Spirals are designed for low maintenance and long life. Only high quality components are used throughout.  All bearings are sealed for life and need no further lubrication.  The chain is of heavy duty nickel plated construction and as a result, needs only infrequent lubrication.  The slats are made of a nylon composite, and need no maintenance and can easily be replaced as single components without the use of special tools.
