The Super Compact Narrow Trak Spiral Conveyors are ideal for smaller sized loads. This week we’re shipping two 1200-230 Narrow Trak spirals and a case spiral (1300-400) to a Canadian Brewery for our Integrator Partner LaGrotta Packaging.

Compact Narrow Trak Spiral

Ryson’s NT – A Super Compact Narrow Trak Spiral

The Integrator’s application of our Narrow Trak Spirals save space by eliminating the need for an incline belt conveyor and will reduce implementation costs, as the spirals ship totally pre-assembled. The tight layout of their production area made the very small footprint – only a 4’9″ diameter – of the NT an ideal candidate.

One of the Narrow Trak (NT) spirals will be inclining HiCone 6 packs and the other 8-packs of shrink-wrapped beer cans from the packaging area.  The spirals will be running at 95 FPM, handling 20 units per minute and will discharge at an elevation of 7’-0”. Both lines will feed tray packers that discharge to the case spiral which sends them back down to the Palletizing area.

The Ryson compact Narrow Trak Spirals offer a significantly larger elevation change capacity than what is currently available in the small package marketplace. They are also a good alternative to side gripper conveyors because they can run at high speeds and do not need to be adjusted for varying product sizes. The Narrow Trak Spirals are especially beneficial for the food, beverage, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, personal care market and food product companies.

The Ryson Modular Design can make an installation much simpler.

 

In this example, we shipped a spiral to Toronto Canada for our Integrator partner, George A. Wright & Son. Their client, a medical laboratory testing facility, is implementing a conveyor system utilizing the spiral to go from one floor to another.

Ryson Modular Design -Sections for shipping

Example of a Ryson Spiral Conveyor that is shipped in two pieces to aid in installation.

The project required a floor penetration and for ease of installation, the spiral was shipped in two sections. The upper portion will be rigged up through the slab opening and the lower section slid under it. The millwrights, under the supervision of our service tech, will splice the center column and track sections back together. The chain assembly was shipped separately to minimize the weight of the two sections for ease of rigging.

The Ryson modular design enables us to modify our standard models relatively easily for applications like these. If you would like more information on Ryson Spirals, and their modular design, please visit www.ryson.com. You can also read more Ryson installation stories on our weekly blog.

2015 is starting out to be a fantastic year for Ryson. Spiral Conveyor and Bucket Elevator orders have been pouring in and our manufacturing plant is in full gear. 

Ryson Manufacturing Plant

So far this year, we have received orders and will be shipping Ryson machines to Mexico, Panama, Peru, Ecuador, Brazil, Columbia and Canada in addition to many in the United States. We are very pleased to see that our Vertical Conveying Solutions are taking hold in Latin America and growing in our sales.

As our integrator and customer relationships continue to grow in Latin American business, we are confident that the Ryson brand and reputation will grow along with it. Ryson will be exhibiting at Expo Pack in Guadalajara, Mexico in February, Expo Pack in Mexico City and FISPAL in Sao Paulo, Brazil both in June and Andina-Pack in Bogotá – Colombia in November.

CanadianPackagingStory

The June issue of Canadian packaging Magazine reports a story of how Unilever added their Hellman’s dressing product line to their Rexdale, Ontario manufacturing plant without expanding the building.

This was a challenging project for Unilever because they had functioning packaging lines for the existing Becel Margarine products which had to be compressed in order to make room for three new Hellman’s production lines.

Ryson Spirals were part of the solution because of their space-saving and high throughput benefits. Two Ryson Vertical Case Spiral Conveyors with 16″ wide slats handle cases from the production at floor level up 10′ to the palletizers above at a rate 90 FPM.

Extended Infeed Helps With Tight Layout Solutions

This spiral conveyor has a custom extended infeed to simplify the layout and help with tight layout solutions.

Extended Infeed Helps With Tight Layout Solutions:

The Ryson modular design allows the position, angle and length of the infeed or outfeed tangent to be customized. This feature makes Ryson Spiral Conveyors more flexible and easier to fit into the most challenging layouts.

The pictured spiral was shipped to Procter & Gamble in Brockville, Canada. The customer needed to have a centerline offset 16″ between the upper level infeed and the discharge at the lower level in order to make the layout work in their limited space. The engineering team at Ryson proposed a solution where the offset could be facilitated by the spiral itself. This solution simplified the layout which in turn reduced controls and integration costs.

Typically, the infeed tangent can be modified on up spirals and the outfeed tangent on spirals used as lowerators. This feature makes Ryson Spiral Conveyors more flexible and easier to fit into the most challenging layouts. For more information on the modular design of the Ryson Spiral Conveyors and the many industries they are utilized, visit www.ryson.com.

Ryson Slow Speed Spiral with Paper Plates

This slow speed Spiral Conveyor was recently shipped to Nova Scotia, Canada. The integrator needed to increase the length of conveyor between two processes allowing the product to cool down.

The process starts with the press and stacker, which discharges 8” tall stacks of paper plates hot from the press.  To allow for cool down of the plates before entering the wrapper (which wraps the stacks in plastic), the integrator utilized a Ryson slow speed Spiral 1200-300 Decline Conveyor, adding an extra 40 feet of effective conveyor length to the line, while adding only 5’-3” to the system footprint.  Allowing for the necessary cooling time of the plates, the spiral speed is only 10 feet per minute. That makes this among the slowest spirals ryson has ever delivered.

This is a good example of using the many Ryson design parameters to apply to almost any vertical conveying application. Most spiral models can run at any speed up to 200 feet per minute. For more information on Ryson spiral design features, visit the spiral conveyor page on www.ryson.com.

Our integrator partner on this job was BF Consulting Materials Handling of Nova Scotia.
