Ryson Spiral for the Craft Beer MarketUsing Ryson Spiral Conveyors in the beverage and craft beer market is getting some good attention. Such is the case with this highly visible spiral.

This week we shipped this spiral to a craft brewery in Indiana for our integrator partner Van Zyverden. It’s color is called Tele-Magenta and will do the lifting in a state-of-the-art packaging line.

This spiral will elevate trays of beer cans from the production area to the packaging area at a rate of 60 CPM. The trays enter this spiral at 4’0″ and elevate them to an overhead conveyor at 11’6″. This 1300-400 spiral also has an extended infeed to minimize ancillary conveyors in the layout.

Ryson Spirals can be powder coated in most RAL colors, or stainless steel. Whatever your reason for choice of color, Ryson is happy to accommodate.

Ryson offers many custom options and configurations, color being one of them. If you would like more information on Ryson Spirals, visit www.ryson.com, or read more stories about custom color options on our weekly blog.

Ryson Dual Track Spirals are an ideal solution for even more space savings because they allow 2 lanes of product flow within one spiral structure.

 Ryson Dual Track Spirals

This week we shipped another one of our Dual Track Spirals for our Integrator partner, Garvey Corporation.

This 1300-400/2300-400 machine contains two independent lanes of 16” wide overlapping slats in a nine foot diameter footprint. In this case, Garvey will take the output of the case packer and split them into two lanes prior to the spiral. The high level palletizer requires a dual infeed (cases infeeding two-abreast). The spiral conveys various cases of cans of paint at 120 FPM at rates up to 75 cases per minute to a discharge height of 10’-6”.

Two tracks operate independently within one spiral structure. Both tracks can go up or down and can optionally be reversible. Only one drive motor is required for each track, resulting in substantial savings in energy, controls and systems integration.

“Ryson Spirals are Delightfully Flexible” That’s what John Davis of Vermillion Conveyor Systems said about our ability to create spiral configurations to meet his layout challenges for a major food manufacturer’s case handling system.

Ryson offers many spiral configurationsThe spiral Vermillion Conveyor Systems ordered ships next week and is our Model 1300-400 with a 9’-0” elevation change.  The facility and line layout offered our  integrator partner a challenge and the Ryson engineering team was able to solve it with a custom modification of our standard “D” configuration. The discharge is at a custom angle, which allowed it to seamlessly fit in the layout and save valuable floor space.

Since the Ryson Spirals are modular, custom design is used to optimize the layouts of each job. Spiral configurations include infeed, outfeed, speed, color, angle of incline and infeed/discharge tangents are all calculated to each specific project. If you would like more information on the modularity and configurability of our spirals, read more at www.ryson.com or download our new brochure.

Ryson Heavy Spiral for the Bottling IndustryBottling Industry: This week Ryson finished pre-shipment testing on one of our model 1300-400 spirals for elevating 30 pound cases of distilled spirits to an elevation of 12 feet. The Ryson brand has become a favorite for vertical conveying in the distilled spirits market. Our spiral conveyors are operating in numerous different spirits bottling sites across North America.

The 1300-400 model is ideal for such bottling operations, with it’s compact 5’-11” diameter footprint and 1800 lbs. load capacity. Many distilleries often change packaging format resulting in line layout changes. They Ryson modular design allows us to easily reconfigure the spirals in the  field to accommodate such changes. We recently reconfigured (5) different spirals at one prominent Kentucky Distiller.

Dual Lane Dual Spiral handles 4 Lines

The Ryson Dual Track Spiral Conveyor combines 2 independently driven spirals in one small footprint.

Dual Lane Dual Spiral That handles 4 Lines: This week we conducted a factory acceptance test of this special Ryson Dual Track spiral conveyor. This is our 1300-400/2300-400 model with two independently driven inclining lanes, which are separated by a center guide rail, creating space to handle four production lines in a diameter of 9 feet. The Dual Track Spiral Conveyor is Ryson’s ultimate space saver by simply doing the work of 2 spirals in one compact footprint.

The system, designed by Muller International and integrated by Flexicell, transports plastic trays of pre-baked muffins up to an elevation of 14’-6” to a freezer. For more information on the Ryson Dual Track Spiral Conveyor, visit www.ryson.com or download the spec sheet.
