Recently, our controls and service groups were assisting our Integrator Partner, Conveyor & Drives, Inc. with a project. The end-user, a distribution center for computer peripheral equipment, was replacing a competitor’s spiral conveyors, due to reliability issues they were having with them.

Stacked Ryson Spirals at a Distribution CenterThe reconfigured system consists of two of our model 1700-600’s, double stacked. One spiral inclines from level one to level two, the other declines totes down to level three. Our AutoCad 3D drawings helped Conveyor & Drives confirm the space necessary to install our spiral extended leg support structure, supporting the upper spiral.

We were asked to replace the existing spirals over a short down-time window by our Integration Partner. They also asked us to include a pre-wired full controls option, which included chain tension monitoring system and a motor over torque shutdown, because the previous spirals did not have them.

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.
