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.

Smooth Product Handling: This week we shipped two model 2300-400 spirals to a specialty packaging manufacturer. This spiral model is typically used for high volume mass flow of glass bottles and cans, but because of this special application, we substituted our mass flow slats with our standard carton and case (overlapping-style) slats.

The customer needed to incline stacks of bliss box ends at 90 fpm with no orientation change and without shingling. Because the stacks were not strapped together, a delicate ride and a low angle of incline was required for smooth product handling.

Pre-testing of the various products was done at our Yorktown, Virginia manufacturing facility and it was ultimately determined that this wide-diameter model would work perfectly for their application. Our chain and overlapping slat design allows smooth transportation of the stacks at around a 3.8 degree inclination angle.

One of our field technicians will be on-site in the coming weeks to assist in the re-assembly and start-up of their system.  For more information on special applications solutions, visit www.ryson.com, or browse through our weekly blog.

Ryson Mass Flow Spiral for the Glass-Making IndustryRyson’s Mass Flow Spiral Conveyors are an ideal solution to vertically convey bottles, cans and jars. It is attracting much interest from the glass-making industry.

This week we’re shipping two specialized Mass Flow Spirals to a glass manufacturer in California for our Integrator Partner, Barlow Packaging.

The project involves elevating and lowering glass wine bottles with a reverse taper in a single file, with the future requirement to mass flow long neck beer bottles. The spirals also included a self-contained local control station with a digital interface to upstream and downstream conveyors to allow the system to run three different speeds based on the bottle type being conveyed.

The project included one spiral incline and one decline with an elevation change of 6 and 8 feet. This model 2300-400 is capable of conveying bottles in mass up to 1200 bottles per minute and up to 300 bottles per minute in a single file.
