Last week we shipped this Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor to a Brewery. It will deliver bottles from a bulk depalletizer and discharge them to the filler at floor level.
This model 2300-500 spiral features a 20” wide slat surface and is our hybrid stainless steel version. The spiral is 22’-0” tall and has a load capacity of 3,600 lbs. It will be used for declining empty 12 ounce glass bottles in mass at 1,380 bottles per minute.
Our in-house controls department pre-wired the spiral with a local control station and motor disconnect switch to reduce the implementation time of installation.
Other special design specifications were added, including optional bearing brand, a missing slat detection system and the customer’s motor/gearbox preference.
This wide-body spiral was designed to ship on a flat-bed step deck trailer to minimize the degree of dis-assembly required for shipping purposes. Our service technician is on site, assisting the riggers and millwrights in installing the spiral.
Our Systems Integrator partner in this project is Foth Production Solutions. For more information on the Ryson Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor and it’s applications, visit www.ryson.com, or you can read more installation stories from our blog.

Last week, Marc, one of our service technicians visited a Ryson Project site, where our Integrator partner KHS USA, had installed a case spiral and the spiral pictured here, our model 2300-500 Mass Flow Spiral.
This spiral declines empty glass beer bottles 10 feet from a high level bulk depalletizer down to the filler floor at a brewery. Marc was on site checking the integration of the spirals and training the operations and maintenance folks on the proper operation and care of our machines.
This mass flow spiral is handling empty glass bottles (12 and 24 ounce) at a rate of 1,440 bottles per minute, day in and day out.
This model is capable of handling full bottles and cans at rates in excess of 2,000 per minute and has a 20” wide slat surface. For more information on Ryson’s Mass Flow Spiral Conveyors, please visit www.ryson.com, or download the product literature.

High Capacity Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor With Lane Divider to Run Two Production Lines at the Same Time
This week we shipped one of our new high capacity mass flow spiral conveyors with 20″ wide slats to Lindy’s Italian Ice’s production facility in North Carolina. The spiral will convey cups of Italian Ice from a spiral freezer down to the floor level.
This application is interesting in that the cups come out of the freezer with two different flavors at the same time, which need to be conveyed in separate lanes. The two lanes are fed on to the spirals’s extended infeed which is equipped with a center lane divider ensuring separation of the two flavors in the spiral decline. The products are then discharged from both sides of the spiral’s extended outfeed and conveyed to separate cartoners.
This spiral freezer and associated mass flow vertical conveyor enabled the customer to increase the production rate drastically. By using 2 lanes within one Ryson Spiral they also significantly reduced the cost of equipment.
Because of the size of the 2300-500 model high capacity spiral a stepped-deck flatbed trailer was used to ship the spiral. One of our Yorktown-based technicians met the trailer at it’s destination to supervise the unloading and set-up of the spiral, which took a day and a half.
The 20″ wide slat mass flow model can handle capacities up to 2,000 bottle cans or jars per minute are also available in powder coated carbon steel, stainless steel and washdown versions.
