Ryson Spiral for a Freezer EnvironmentRyson Spiral Conveyors can be configured to work in a freezer environment.

This week we’re shipping one of our model 1500-400 Spiral Conveyors to an Ice Cream Manufacturer that will be installed in a -20 degree freezer.

The Spiral will elevate sealed cartons of ice cream to an elevation of 13 feet at 150 FPM. In the photo, you’ll notice that the slats are blue. We use special proprietary slats that will not become brittle at subzero temperatures. The gearbox oil and freezer chain bearings are also special to handle those temperatures.

The spiral will ship in two sections, for ease of installation in the facility’s frozen storage area. One our Service Technicians will accompany the spiral to assist the millwrights on site in the re-assembly and start-up of the machine.

This month, Canadian Packaging Magazine did a feature story on a new Unilever Ice Cream Plant, combining cutting-edge production and packaging technology with uncompromising food safety requirements. Ryson Spirals were used.

The article is highlighting Unilever’s focus on food safety and their commitment to being an environmentally responsible operation.

This new facility has four Ryson Spiral Conveyors conveying several carton sizes and shrink wrapped ice cream tubs from floor level up to a 12 foot elevation where the products are conveyed to the end-of-line packaging operation.

Ryson Spirals need less floor space than conventional incline conveyors and are faster and more reliable than any elevator or lift. As the understanding of the benefits of the Ryson Vertical Conveying solutions grows, we see increased sales with our neighbors to the North and the South.

The Ryson Spiral conveyor can be manufactured to operate in a Freezer environment down to -30 degrees. The spiral conveyor is a logical choice for declining frozen product to a robotic palletizer or downstream packaging line. When compared to other methods like belt declines and vertical case lowerators, the Ryson Spiral design is very reliable for this harsh freezer environment.  The blue slats are a proprietary compound developed by Ryson to operate in low temperatures and not be brittle.

Ryson Spiral Conveyors can be configured to operate effectively in freezer environments.

We recently shipped a special cold spiral for handling large tubs of Ice Cream in a freezer (minus 10 degrees F) at a large Ice Cream manufacturer in the Midwest by our Systems Integrator, Engineered Packaging Systems of Addison, Illinois. The above photo was taken in our manufacturing plant during testing prior to shipping. This spiral joins many other Ryson spirals in use in sub-zero environments across North America.
