Ryson Mass Flow Spiral with special design featuresIn the next few weeks we’ll be shipping two custom Mass Flow spirals with some special design features.

These two stainless steel hybrid spirals will work as part of the bulk de-palletizing system for a major brewery.

The special design features include a top canopy cover and removable clear lexan side guard extensions to keep dirt and debris from entering the bottles during their transport to the filler.

They will raise and lower empty glass bottles at rates exceeding 1,100 per minute. The elevation change on this 1900-400 model spiral is 13 feet and is made of components designed to handle wet environments.

 Our Integrator Partner, Gebo Cermex Canada, specified Ryson to their customer based on our reputation in the mass flow spiral market, where we have many project sites in North and South America handling bottles, cans and jars in mass.

Ryson Mass Flow FAT

Factory Testing a new High Capacity Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor with lightweight aluminum bottles

An optional Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) is available to all our customers. Ryson always runs and tests each spiral before shipping from our Virginia manufacturing plant, but customers often want assurance that their products are handled as required on our spirals before leaving our factory.  Since travel to observe this isn’t always a viable option, Ryson is happy to videotape and photograph the test and post the video securely via the internet. Many of our customers take advantage of this time and money saving resource.

This week  a 1900-400 High Capacity Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor is shipping out to MillerCoors in Golden Colorado. The Spiral will lowerate their new aluminum bottles from de-palletizing to the filler. The customer was concerned about the stability and handling of the product since the bottles are tall and lightweight. They shipped us a skid-full so we could test the flow and stability of the product before final approval and shipping.

View a portion of the video we produced for the customer and Sidel, the integrator on this project. If you have any question about how Ryson could set up a video test for you, please give us a call at 757-898-1350 or visit www.ryson.com.

As word spreads about Ryson’s recently-enhanced high capacity mass flow spiral conveyors, our manufacturing plant hits high gear building them. The high capacity mass flow spirals are available with 16” and 20” wide slat surfaces. They can double the load capacity of our standard mass flow spirals that feature a 12″ conveying surface . These new machines give our systems integrators and their clients the ability to convey cans, bottles and jars at rates up to 2,000 per minute with up to 16′ elevation change.
