Wide Trak Installation: The Wide Trak spiral is one of the few models that ships partially disassembled depending on the configuration and requires a Ryson tech on site for re-assembly supervision.

Wide Trak Installation at a distribution centerLast week a Ryson Service Tech supervised the Wide Trak installation at a distribution center for a major retailer in the Chicago area. The integrator partner on the project was The Wynright Corporation. 

The 3000-900 Wide Trak Spiral was shipped on time, re-assembled and positioned in place prior to connecting it to the rest of the conveyors leading to and out of the spiral.

Our new 36″ wide overlapping slats are designed to handle big and small loads. The system is designed to handle loads as big as 28″ wide, 42″ long and 40″tall.

Ryson utilizes its 1” high capacity chain that can run at a maximum speed of 200 FPM and 3600 lbs. when fully loaded. The spiral’s design is similar to any other Ryson spiral with its safeties, modularity and easy installation and integration to the rest of the system.

The new Ryson Wide Trak Spiral Conveyor is in response to our customers’ need to handle bigger loads and reach higher elevations They can handle double the weight capacity of our regular Spirals and are ideal for warehousing and order picking operations.

Ryson Wide Trak Spirals

This week, we continue our string of the new Wide Trak Spiral Conveyor, with our model 3000-900’s. The overlapping slat width of 36” is just what the doctor ordered for our Integrator partner, Bastian Solutions.

Their customer, a large sporting goods retailer, needed to handle jumbo size cartons and called on us to employ 4 of these spirals in an expansion of their Distribution Center. These units have an elevation change of 21 feet and will run at 110 FPM.

Once assembled and tested in our Virginia facility, the spirals are partially dis-assembled and shipped to the project site, where our service technicians assist the Bastian Installation crew in the reassembly and start-up of these units.

Since getting into the “large spiral” business, we have come to the realization that there’s a great need for those warehouse/distribution applications to vertically transport larger and heavier cartons. This has been historically done with long stretches of incline or decline belt conveyors or with spirals made of belt curves, which have product size restrictions and we get a lot of negative feedback regarding belt replacement and general maintenance headaches.
