Ryson Dual Track Spirals are an ideal solution for even more space savings because they allow 2 lanes of product flow within one spiral structure.

 Ryson Dual Track Spirals

This week we shipped another one of our Dual Track Spirals for our Integrator partner, Garvey Corporation.

This 1300-400/2300-400 machine contains two independent lanes of 16” wide overlapping slats in a nine foot diameter footprint. In this case, Garvey will take the output of the case packer and split them into two lanes prior to the spiral. The high level palletizer requires a dual infeed (cases infeeding two-abreast). The spiral conveys various cases of cans of paint at 120 FPM at rates up to 75 cases per minute to a discharge height of 10’-6”.

Two tracks operate independently within one spiral structure. Both tracks can go up or down and can optionally be reversible. Only one drive motor is required for each track, resulting in substantial savings in energy, controls and systems integration.

Hartness pack expo boothIn addition to running our Case Spiral, Bucket Elevator and new High Capacity Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor with 10″ wide slats in the Ryson booth, we had Ryson Spirals running in demo loops at two of our integrator partners.

Hartness featured two Ryson Spirals in their impressive demo loop showcasing their new DYNAC carton mass flow buffer, a new wrap-around packer for shelf ready packages and an end-of-line robotic palletizer.

Storcan with SpiralAnother integration partner Storcan, featured a Ryson spiral in a case handling loop.

It is gratifying when our partners proudly feature our equipment in their booth. This year it was also nice that both booths showed the application of a spiral in a loop, to help illustrate how a spiral is beneficial in a packaging line.

Many of our customers have found that reconfiguring a Ryson Spiral Conveyor can cost for less than the cost of a new spiral. The proprietary modular design of the Ryson Spiral Conveyor allows us to change the configuration so the spiral can serve a new purpose.

Ryson Spirals are easy to Reconfigure

Ryson’s proprietary modular design allows a spiral to be reconfigured.

In the photos above, one of our Systems Integrators – Stokes Material Handling – had us reconfigure a spiral that was to be installed in a updated palletizer line for his customer Colgate Palmolive. After the spiral was delivered, their customer purchased a different palletizer than originally planned, requiring a different configuration and the addition of an extended in-feed. Since the unit had not yet been installed, they decided to have us do the modification in our manufacturing plant, instead of in the field, but reconfigurations in the field are the most common.

In this case, the spiral went from an A model counter-clockwise down spiral with a 7′-0″ elevation change  to a BC-EX clockwise down spiral with a 6′-1″ elevation change and an extended in-feed. Repurposing is one of the many reasons we call our spiral conveyors green and sustainable. Read more reconfiguring/repurposing application stories on our weekly blog.
