Tall Stainless Steel Mass Flow Spiral ConveyorWe recently conducted a comprehensive factory acceptance test (FAT) on two tall stainless steel mass flow spiral conveyors for a major food manufacturer. These two spirals will handle full jars of various sizes at a rate of up to 750 jars per minute. The spirals will decline from 21′ –  5″ to the floor level. The spirals feature 16″ wide slats and have 11 1/2 turns declining at an angle of 4.2 degrees.

The customer had developed a comprehensive test protocol to verify that the spirals were manufactured to meet their design and performance specifications. This included an 8 hour dry run during which time critical operating characteristics were measured.

The integrator on this project is the Dennis Group of Springfield MA. The order also included two 16 foot tall case spirals with 16″ wide slats. To view video footage of the Ryson Mass Flow Spiral conveyor, visit Ryson’s YouTube Channel.

Every Ryson Spiral Conveyor is Custom Built to Customer Application Requirements

Every Ryson Spiral Conveyor is made to Order.

Every Ryson spiral is made to order to fit your specific application. Variables such as change in elevation, load size and stability, conveying speed, in and out feed angles, throughput volume, weight and orientation requirements are all considered when our proposal team comes up with spiral solutions and pricing. 

Ryson has six standard slat widths ranging from 8″ to 26″. The spiral footprint depends on the width of the slat. Slat widths take your product size and or volume requirements into consideration. The angle of incline or decline depends on two major variables – the change in elevation required and the unit stability. Naturally a stable product with a low center of gravity can traverse at a greater angle.

The modular design of the Ryson Spiral Conveyors enables any in-feed and out-feed tangent, allowing you to fit a vertical lift spiral into your line with the smallest possible footprint. Any Ryson Vertical Spiral can be designed to go up or down and can optionally be made reversible. We also work closely with our integrators and offer other options, including special safety considerations, controls, pre-wiring and other options to facilitate integration. All Ryson Spirals are available in powder coated carbon steel (any RAL color), stainless steel, washdown and freezer versions.

Please check out our RFQ form for more information about our spiral conveyors. If you fill in the application specifics, our Ryson proposal team will quickly reply with a spiral recommendation and pricing. You can read more about The Ryson Spiral Conveyors on www.ryson.com.
