We 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.
