The Super Compact Narrow Trak Spiral Conveyors are ideal for smaller sized loads. This week we’re shipping two 1200-230 Narrow Trak spirals and a case spiral (1300-400) to a Canadian Brewery for our Integrator Partner LaGrotta Packaging.

Compact Narrow Trak Spiral

Ryson’s NT – A Super Compact Narrow Trak Spiral

The Integrator’s application of our Narrow Trak Spirals save space by eliminating the need for an incline belt conveyor and will reduce implementation costs, as the spirals ship totally pre-assembled. The tight layout of their production area made the very small footprint – only a 4’9″ diameter – of the NT an ideal candidate.

One of the Narrow Trak (NT) spirals will be inclining HiCone 6 packs and the other 8-packs of shrink-wrapped beer cans from the packaging area.  The spirals will be running at 95 FPM, handling 20 units per minute and will discharge at an elevation of 7’-0”. Both lines will feed tray packers that discharge to the case spiral which sends them back down to the Palletizing area.

The Ryson compact Narrow Trak Spirals offer a significantly larger elevation change capacity than what is currently available in the small package marketplace. They are also a good alternative to side gripper conveyors because they can run at high speeds and do not need to be adjusted for varying product sizes. The Narrow Trak Spirals are especially beneficial for the food, beverage, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, personal care market and food product companies.

Tall Ryson NT: Ideal for Small Package ConveyingSmall package conveying: This week we’re shipping one of our Narrow Trak Spiral Conveyors, to a food manufacturer. The model 1700-150 NT will elevate single serve gelatin cups to a 20’ elevation at 290 per minute.

The system integrator, Nercon, will be end-transferring in and out of the spiral via a micro-pitch transfer. The spiral’s full width friction inserts keep the cups in position on the way up this 7-turn spiral, inclining at an angle just above 6 degrees.

This 6” wide slat Narrow Trak model is also available in a smaller diameter 4’-2”. The 1200-230 NT Model has wider 9″ slat surface with an outside diameter of 4′-9″.

The Narrow Trak Spirals offer a significantly larger elevation change capacity than what is currently available in the small package marketplace. They are also a good alternative to side gripper conveyors because they can run at high speeds and do not need to be adjusted for varying product sizes. The nesting slats have the capacity to reliably end-transfer small cartons and packages or side-transfer small bottles or containers in a single file or in a continuous mass flow.

Ryson Narrow Trak SpiralsThe newest addition to our spiral family, is the Narrow Trak Spirals model 1200-230. As you can see from this shot of our production floor, the Narrow Trak has become very popular. These spirals are all model 1200-230 machines and comprise two different projects. One project handling empty flaps-up cartons and the other project handling full cartons and shrink-wrapped bundles of glass bottles.

The Ryson Narrow Trak Spirals are super compact vertical conveyors designed to handle small loads. They are great space savers with high throughput.

The nesting slats have the capacity to reliably end-transfer small cartons and packages or side-transfer small bottles or containers in a single file or in a continuous mass flow. All at speeds in excess of 200 FPM. The nesting slats provide a smooth and safe conveying surface without gaps.

The Narrow Trak spirals offer a significantly larger elevation change capacity than what is currently available in the small package marketplace. They are also a good alternative to side gripper conveyors because they can run at high speeds and do not need to be adjusted for varying product sizes.

Ryson is developing a specialized guide rail design for spirals we’re building for a major beverage manufacturer.

The customer is inclining empty flap-up cartons from a carton erector to the carton packing machine on an adjacent mezzanine level. The challenge was to maintain orientation of (6) different carton sizes during the incline. The cover flaps are not yet scored and stand vertical causing some to be unstable.

Our engineering team designed a special guide rail system to trap them using a center rail and an extended-height outside UHMW guide rail.

The Spirals are our Narrow Trak model 1200-230’s which have a 9” wide nesting slat surface capable of speeds of up to 225 FPM. Here’s a product testing video of a guide rail design and testing for this spiral project.
