Ryson Spiral Conveyors continue to grow in popularity. One reason is the advantages they have over conventional vertical case elevators. Many customers and integrators are looking to replace existing continuous vertical machines because of the cost and downtime to repair them after an indexing crash. They also have reliability issues and lack flexibility (with regard to case/minute rates and package size) and lack of modularity for field changes to adapt to changing line layouts.

Ryson Spiral Replaces Case Elevator

Ryson Spiral replaces an old Case Elevator (in the background) – an increasingly common scene.

The Vertical Conveying Concept that Ryson Spiral Conveyors provide is a much simpler and more reliable solution. They offer high throughput without complicated indexing controls at speeds up to 200 feet per minute. When replacing a case elevator with a spiral conveyor, there is no compromise on floor space (CVC’s require indexing conveyors at their infeeds). The Ryson proprietary modular design also allows for field modifications to adapt to changing line layouts.
Companies are moving towards the concept of lowering their cost of ownership, and the Ryson Spiral Conveyor does precisely that. Low maintenance, reliability and flexible modularity are a big reason Spiral Conveyors are replacing the Case Elevator. For more information on the Spiral Conveyor, visit www.ryson.com

Ryson Spirals are faster, more reliable than a case elevator and requires a lot less maintenance. Ryson Spirals often replace older case elevators in existing plants as is the case at Aptar Beauty + Home.

Jeff Danek, the Engineer at Aptar says “The previous elevator had out lived it’s practical and cost effective life. Being of chain driven indexing design, it tended to wear components at an unacceptable rate.  Any effective maintenance or repair took substantial time and usually more than one individual. Our operation often runs 24/7, so performing even minimal preventative maintenance  is very difficult. ”

Aptar Spiral ConveyorJeff continues: “We were intrigued with the possibility of replacing the elevator with the vertical spiral concept but technical personnel were skeptical of the robustness of the design. After meeting with EPS – the integrator on the project, contacting a current user of a Ryson Spiral Conveyor and viewing units at Pack Expo, the maintenance personnel felt much more receptive to the idea. The vertical spiral conveyor design also allowed us to make layout improvements.The VFD reduces much of the wear and tear mechanically. It is very quiet in operation and is much easier to service. It integrated easily with our conveyor and palletizer system and installation went as planned. To date we are very pleased with the operation of the unit.”

EPS – Engineered Packaging Solutions, LLC was the integrator on this project. Visit www.ryson.com for more information on the unit load spiral conveyors and other vertical conveying solutions.
