Ryson Spiral Conveyors in Packaging LineSpiral conveyors have several advantages over traditional incline conveyors. These photos show how a series of Ryson Case Spirals are used to streamline the packaging area of a winery.

The  first two spirals lift the product overhead to clear aisle space and provide an open space for traffic and storage options. An incline conveyors’s footprint would have taken up considerably more floorspace.

The second series of spirals lowers the product and provides transportation to either a bundler or palletizer. This gives the customer ultimate packaging flexibility, un-clutters the conveyor footprint and streamlines the packaging process.

If you have any questions or have an application in warehousing or packaging that would benefit from a spiral conveyor, please fill out our form for more information. The integrator on this project was our sister company Apollo BV.

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.

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.

Ryson is committed to a continuous product development program, with a focus on sustainability and reducing the cost of ownership.

Ryson Chain Slat System

Ryson’s proprietary chain slat track gives super efficient rolling friction.

The proprietary rolling friction design of the slat chain makes Ryson Spiral Conveyors extremely efficient. As a result, our spirals only need one drive motor, which saves power and the cost of  integration. Vertical spiral conveyors take a fraction of the floorspace and drive motors required by traditional incline conveyors.

Ryson vertical conveyors need very little maintenance and all bearings are sealed for life and do not need additional lubrication. The rolling friction also greatly reduces the wear and tear of moving parts, which aids in long-term durability. Water lubricants are not required on our Mass Flow Spirals for proper product flow. Ryson manufactures solid heavy-duty machines that are designed for long life. All Ryson products are modular in design and are easily repurposed in the field to meet emerging needs.

Factory Acceptance Test on Spiral Conveyor

Temperature, and noise levels were recored over an 8 hour period of a running spiral conveyor.for a factory acceptance test

Periodically, our clients request “dry run testing” on their vertical spiral conveyors before leaving our Virginia facility. One such customer asked us to combine this with a video FAT (factory acceptance test).

During the dry run, we take hourly temperature readings on the motor, gearbox and bearings and monitor noise level of the spiral conveyor. This is conducted during an 8 hour period and the data sent off to the customer along with a video of the spiral running their test product.

This service saves the customer valuable time and the cost of travelling to our facility to witness the testing of the spiral lift. Just another “extra” that we do that sets Ryson apart from all our competitors.

Ryson Multiple=The new Ryson High Capacity Spiral Conveyor design is getting many of our integrators excited. Especially when they learn it can come with multi-level in-feed options. We are showing off it’s capabilities this week at Pack Expo in Chicago.

The new Ryson High Capacity Spirals are in response to our customers need to go higher and handle more weight.

Ryson Multi Entry Spiral at Pack ExpoThe load capacity of the vertical spiral conveyor is 75 lbs. per linear foot of conveyor with speeds up to 200 FPM. The total weight capacity in the incline spiral at any one time is 3600 lbs.

The Multiple Entry option 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.

Visit the www.ryson.com for more information on the High Capacity Spiral Conveyor and how it can be used in a multi tiered system. You can also see some footage on Ryson’s YouTube Channel.

Spiral Conveyor Factory Acceptance Tests: Ryson International always welcomes our system integrators to bring their clients to our manufacturing plant to perform final inspections (FAT- Factory Acceptance Test). It is another step we take to ensure customer satisfaction and confidence in our product.

Spiral Conveyor Factory Acceptance Tests

Ryson Service Manager and Customer Look over a New Spiral Before Final Shipment

This week we hosted Kimberly-Clark for a pre-shipment inspection of two new spiral conveyors handling bundles of diapers. Ryson’s spiral lifts are perfectly suited to handle fragile packaging, but often the customer wants to see the handling first-hand. The visit also allowed their engineer to inspect the spirals conveyors in operation, review our integration/installation guidelines, preventative maintenance procedures and to ensure our machines meet their requirements.

It was time well spent and we received the following feedback. “Thank you for hosting my Visit. I really appreciated the flexibility and hospitality of your team. The overall equipment design was very good and I can tell there is a high degree of commitment to customer service. I look forward to receiving the photos and temperature data. Please pass along my thanks and appreciation to the rest of the team.”
