Tall Ryson Mass Flow SpiralRyson Mass Flow Spiral new 10” wide slat model with its small footprint is the perfect solution for moderate to low filler rates.

Next week we’ll be shipping one of our model 1900-260 Mass Flow Spiral Conveyors to a Canadian manufacturer of organic fruit spreads. The Spiral will take full glass jars from the discharge of the cooler and elevate them to their second floor for labeling, case packing and palletizing, at a volume up to 250 per minute.

Our expertise and market experience in being able to handle the weights and an elevation change of over 14 feet sets Ryson apart in the mass flow spiral world. Our new 10” wide model with its small footprint is the perfect solution for moderate to low filler rates.

The jars side transfer in to and out of this 9 1/2 turn spiral, which has stainless steel legs and feet, due to it’s proximity to the cooler. Our Integrator partner, Arrowhead Conveyor worked with the end-user on an expansion project and they chose Ryson for the vertical conveying requirements.

Spiral Modular Construction

Spiral Modular Construction

Quick Service Turnaround.

During the installation of a new packaging line at a Southeast bottler it was discovered that the spiral needed to be 7″ taller than ordered. Our service department quickly suggested the most time efficient solution was to increase the height in the field. New parts were made in two weeks and the height was changed at the time of installation without delaying the start-up date.

This is another example of how the Ryson modular design enables us to effectively modify our spiral conveyors. It can be a cost effective solution and is implemented in a short time. This folds into the high level of service costumers and integrators have come to expect from Ryson.

The proprietary modular design of the Ryson Spiral Conveyors allows us to quickly build vertical conveyors customized to the the customer’s specific needs, and to modify them in the field if need be. Read more stories on Ryson’s ability to reconfigure spirals.

Ryson Video PresentationNew Ryson Video: Ryson has finished producing a nice informational presentation video about our vertical conveying solutions and introduces the Ryson product line. It shows how the proprietary design of our vertical conveyors is utilized to maximize throughput while minimizing floorspace. Additionally the Ryson feature-rich design lowers installation cost, saves energy and ultimately reduces the cost of ownership.

As a convenient service to our customers and systems integrators, Ryson offers video FATs (Factory Acceptance Tests).  This is an effective and efficient way to see and approve the spiral conveyors running prior to shipment from our production facility in Yorktown, Virginia.

In the video above, a customer wanted to see “worst case scenarios” for their product line. Ryson ran damaged packaging and performed start/stop tests to ensure product orientation and stability. The video also highlights components of the spiral’s construction to help orient the customer when the spiral arrives.
Ryson also offers product testing for customers having questions on how their specific product would convey on a Ryson Vertical Conveyor. Simply send samples and we will videotape your product on one of our test spiral conveyors and send you a private and secure link to watch on YouTube. If you have not already done so, you can also visit Ryson’s YouTube Channel to view examples of Ryson’s Vertical Conveying Solutions.

Installing Tall High Capacity Spiral

Installing a tall Ryson High Capacity Spiral Conveyor in a distribution center in Australia.

Four high capacity spiral conveyors are currently being installed in a large distribution warehouse for electronic products in Austrailia. These spiral elevators will service several order picking levels. The Tallest spiral feeds in product at 2′ – 6″ and discharges at 29′ – 0″. The Ryson High Capacity Spiral Conveyors easily handle the tall height requirements with only one drive. The 24″ wide slats will be able to handle loads with variable sizes and weights. There is also an intermediate high-speed induction conveyor at the 12′ – 6″ elevation to accommodate an additional order picking level with the same spiral conveyor unit. The induction conveyor adds additional operational flexibility and reduces the number of vertical conveyors required.

Two-Ryson-Spirals The Ryson Spirals are very easy to install and most spirals are shipped in one piece, pre-tested which drastically reduces the time and cost of installation.  These spirals were loaded fully assembled into 40′ containers and shipped as ocean freight to Australia. A member of our service team traveled down under to supervise the installation and provide maintenance training to ensure the longevity of the vertical conveyors. The integrator on this project is Bastian Material Handling.

The Ryson High Capacity Spiral Conveyors are designed in response to our customers’ need to go higher and handle more weight.

These high capacity vertical spirals handle double the capacity of our regular spirals and ship in one piece which will drastically reduce the time and cost of installation. Ryson Spiral Conveyors need less floor space than conventional vertical conveyors and are faster and more reliable than any elevator or lift. The load capacity is 75 lbs. per linear foot of conveyor for speeds up to 200 FPM.  The total weight capacity in the spiral at any one time is 3600 lbs.  Only one drive motor is required, resulting in substantial savings in energy, controls, and system integration.

Multiple Entry Spirals.

The Multiple Entry Spirals allow loads to enter the spirals from several different elevations. A new high speed induction conveyor provides controlled spiral entry. The conveyor belts are individually adjustable to match the spiral pitch. Traffic controls are required to prevent loads entering from different levels colliding in the spiral.

Ryson High Capacity Vertical Spiral Conveyors handle double the capacity of our standard spirals and the Multiple Entry Spirals allow loads to enter the spirals from several different elevations, both are perfect for multi-tiered pick modules in warehousing and distribution.

tall ryson Stainless wash-down SpiralA 22 foot tall stainless steel washdown Ryson Spiral Conveyor is in the process of being installed at a major food manufacturer in Michigan. The spiral is 8 1/4 turns and will convey single serve microwavable meals down from a spiral freezer in a single file to a packaging line at floor-level.

This application offers substantial savings compared to conventional spiral freezer methods. Products are conveyed down to floor level on the outside the freezer. This design allows the cost savings of both a smaller freezer and only having to use one up spiral freezer. Traditionally, a larger freezer would be required to house a a pair of the more expensive freezer spirals.

All Ryson Spiral Conveyors are made to order and are manufactured in a wide range of sizes and configurations. All our vertical conveyors can operate up and/or down in a clockwise or counterclockwise rotation. All Ryson Spirals are available in powder coated carbon steel, stainless steel, washdown, stainless hybrid and freezer versions.

The integrator on this project is Selectpack out of Michigan.
