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.

Ryson Split Lane SpiralThis week we ship a space saving split lane spiral to a major food manufacturer.

The Ryson 1700-600 Spiral model is not only a space-saver because of it’s small footprint (7’-11” diameter), but the end-user has combined two production lines into one split lane spiral, saving money and additional floorspace.

The spiral has a center divider creating the two lanes in the spiral, delivering sealed cartons at a rate of 300 per minute from an overhead conveyor (8’-9”) to the floor level for case packing.

Ryson’s all-stainless steel design allows the spiral to operate in a wet environment and the spiral will ship pre-assembled, reducing site implementation time.

The integrator on this project is Bastian Solutions. For more information on the Ryson Spiral Conveyors, visit www.ryson.com. You can also read more split lane applications on our weekly blog.

The Ryson High Capacity Spirals are in response to our customers need to go higher and handle more weight. They are perfect for Multi-Level Pick Modules.

Multi-Level Pick Modules Ryson Spirals at Distribution CenterThey can handle double the weight capacity of our regular spirals at speeds up to 200 FPM.

Multiple Entry and Exit Spirals allow loads to enter or exit the High Capacity Spirals at intermediate elevations. New special induction and divert conveyors have individually adjustable conveying surfaces to match the spiral pitch, assuring a smooth and reliable operation.

The loads can enter or exit the spirals in the up or down rotation, and offers great space-savings in multi-tiered order picking systems or multi-level production operations.

An increasing number of systems take advantage of these new features. Ryson recently delivered  High Capacity Spirals to a distribution center in Pennsylvania with a multi level order picking system. Featuring both multiple entry and exit capabilities. View the video below.

The down spirals induct loads at three intermediate elevations and the up spirals divert out at two different elevations. Our integrator partner on this project is Bastian Solutions. For more information about Ryson’s Vertical Conveying Solutions, please visit our website at www.ryson.com.
