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.

This week Ryson hosted an engineer from a global beverage manufacturer, who came to inspect and test four 1900-300 mass flow spiral conveyors. The spirals will transport filled PET bottles at rates of 400-800 per minute. Two of the four spirals were manufactured in stainless steel for wash-down areas and the other two had Ryson’s standard powder coat finish.

Ryson Mass Flow Spiral Factory Acceptance Test

Ryson Sales and Service Department Run a Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor for a Customer’s Factory Acceptance Test.

After a thorough review of the spiral conveyor specifications, we proceeded to the shop floor where the spirals were tested, running their products. Followed by a complete run-through of the preventive maintenance reccomended on Ryson’s vertical conveyors.

We began to prepare them to ship as soon as our guest left as our technicians will be on-site this weekend to assist in the installation of the first spiral. The spiral conveyors are being implemented into a system designed by Sidel, a Ryson Systems Integrator.

We welcome these Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT) and enjoy meeting the companies who are creating an ever-growing demand for the best spiral conveyors in the world.

As word spreads about Ryson’s recently-enhanced high capacity mass flow spiral conveyors, our manufacturing plant hits high gear building them. The high capacity mass flow spirals are available with 16” and 20” wide slat surfaces. They can double the load capacity of our standard mass flow spirals that feature a 12″ conveying surface . These new machines give our systems integrators and their clients the ability to convey cans, bottles and jars at rates up to 2,000 per minute with up to 16′ elevation change.

This Week Ryson's production floor is filled with High Capacity Mass Flow Spiral Conveyors

In the photo above,  three new model 1900-400 mass flow spirals are all nearing completion and headed to different parts of the country.

  • A spiral being used as a dynamic bi-directional buffer accumulation system for a medical filter device manufacturer in Illinois.
  • A Hybrid washdown spiral handling empty aluminum cans and glass beer bottles from a depalletizer for a major Brewery in Colorado.
  • A huge 12-turn spiral inclining full beer bottles and cans for a micro brewery in Minnesota.
