Ryson offers video factory acceptance tests (FAT), or sample product handling videos for our customers and systems integrators. This courtesy is part of our ongoing commitment to customer satisfaction and application testing. The FAT videos are created at the customer’s request before shipping from our manufacturing facility in Yorktown, Virginia.

In this video, a case of similar size and weight to the customer’s is filmed running on their spiral to ensure it’s being handled properly without change in orientation at the specified speed of 140 FPM. The Spiral here is a High Capacity spiral with 16″ wide slats and will handle cases of varied sizes with weight up to 40 lbs.  The video also features a start/stop test to amplify the orientation trials. The end of the video also highlights areas of interest from a maintenance point of view or any custom features.

The Ryson High Capacity Spiral Conveyor load capacity is 75 lbs. per linear foot of conveyor with speeds up to 200 FPM. The total weight capacity in the spiral at any one time is 3600 lbs and can start and stop fully loaded.

Tall Stainless Steel Mass Flow Spiral ConveyorWe recently conducted a comprehensive factory acceptance test (FAT) on two tall stainless steel mass flow spiral conveyors for a major food manufacturer. These two spirals will handle full jars of various sizes at a rate of up to 750 jars per minute. The spirals will decline from 21′ –  5″ to the floor level. The spirals feature 16″ wide slats and have 11 1/2 turns declining at an angle of 4.2 degrees.

The customer had developed a comprehensive test protocol to verify that the spirals were manufactured to meet their design and performance specifications. This included an 8 hour dry run during which time critical operating characteristics were measured.

The integrator on this project is the Dennis Group of Springfield MA. The order also included two 16 foot tall case spirals with 16″ wide slats. To view video footage of the Ryson Mass Flow Spiral conveyor, visit Ryson’s YouTube Channel.

Tall Ryson High Capacity Spiral Conveyor

In the shop this week we are finishing a tall high capacity spiral conveyor. The HC 1700-400 (16″ wide slats) is going to a large consumer products manufacturer in Mexico. The spiral will become part of a system where products from 9 different packaging lines are conveyed overhead to an adjacent building. The spiral then declines variable sized packages 28 feet down to floor level at a speed of 200 FPM. From there they go to sortation and palletizing prior to shipping. The integrator on the project is C & A Systems out of Mexico.

The robust high capacity design gives Ryson the ability to go taller – and with more weight, while staying with our proven proprietary modular design. The total weight capacity in the spiral lift at any one time is 3600 lbs. Only one drive motor is required, resulting in substantial savings in energy, controls and system integration. Most models are shipped totally pre-assembled, which will minimize the implementation costs at their destination.
