Bag Handling Spirals: The Ryson Unit Load Spiral Conveyors are most widely used for cases and totes, but they are also well suited for bags and pails.

Bag Handling SpiralsThis week we’re highlighting a spiral that will be handling bags of Rice, ranging in weight from 25 to 100 lbs.

This 1600-500 model spiral, sold by our integrator Premier Tech, declines bags from an elevation of 16’ down to 10’ to a high level palletizer at a rate of 30 bags per minute.This spiral will be mounted on our extended leg support structure and was configured in a way not to interfere with the pallet dispensing system.

Ryson has much experience with conveying bags and sacks – everything from whey powder to kitty litter. If you would like more information about the Ryson Unit Load Spirals, visit our website, or read more application stories on our weekly blog.

This week, we had multiple spirals shipping with elevated leg support structures.

Elevated Leg Platform For Spiral ConveyorsIn the warehouse/distribution market, these structures are commonly designed to support our spiral conveyors that feed elevated levels of a pick module. All of these leg structures are custom engineered for each application, ensuring the best support with the most efficient space utilization. We fabricate them using structural steel shapes and can be engineered to conform to seismic requirements.

The legs are a modular bolt-together design, to reduce freight cost and allow for easier movement from the truck to the installation area.The green support structure shown above will straddle a spiral sitting on the floor (Elevating product from level one to two), while supporting a spiral declining product from level four to level three.
