The Ryson Wide Trak Spiral can add line compatibility in applications where different sized products are conveyed.The Ryson Wide Trak Spiral can add line compatibility in applications where different sized products are conveyed.

A perfect example is this spiral that was recently installed for a frozen pizza manufacturer. The pizzas are presented to our 30” wide slat surface either single file (for the large pies) or two-abreast (for the smaller ones). A simple diverter at the discharge conveyor directs them to the correct exit route, based on which size they are running at the time.

We specified our new Wide Trak model 2200-760 to accept over-wrapped pizzas from the freezer discharge, down nine feet to the packaging line. We see a great deal of applications where there’s a need to decline from a spiral freezer.

This Wide Trak was built in our hybrid stainless steel version. The spiral runs between 150 and 200 FPM and has an optional inside guide rail.

Next week we ship this special Wide Trak Spiral to a food manufacturer in the Midwest. It is designed to operate in a wet environment.

Stainless Steel Wide Trak Spiral to Operate in Wet EnvironmentThis spiral is the stainless steel version of our new Wide Trak model 2200-760. It features a 30” wide slat surface and stainless steel bearings, which allows it to operate in a wet environment.

The spiral is a incline conveyor, elevating frozen wrapped pizzas from a spiral freezer discharge at 3’-0” up to mezzanine packaging operation at a 12′ – 0″. The pizzas run single file or two abreast at rates up to 120 per minute. The Ryson Wide Trak Spiral models feature either a 30” or 36” wide conveying surface. This model spiral is perfect for this kind of freezer application.

 The spiral will be shipped partially disassembled so that the largest sections can fit through passageways and under the newly installed drop ceiling in the installation area. The spiral will be re-assembled on site by one of our experienced service technicians, along with the on-site installers.

Modex 2018 logoThis week Ryson is exhibiting at Modex 2018 in Atlanta. 

This show is our biggest show to reach our logistics, warehousing and distribution industry customers and integrators.

We are running our new Wide Trak Spiral Conveyor in our booth. This spiral can have a slat width of up to 36 inches. It is in our family of High Capacity Spirals that can optionally be configured with our proprietary induction and divert-out conveyors that allow loads to enter or exit the spiral at intermediate elevations. This is a clear space-savings advantage for companies that have multi-tiered product flow.

The multiple entry ability is most often utilized in two main areas:

In the manufacturing and packaging market, an induction conveyor is typically installed at ground level, near the Spiral’s infeed. This configuration simply allows flow from separate production lines to feed a single spiral.

In the distribution and warehousing industry it is most often used to feed materials from a multi-tiered mezzanine onto a single spiral. (see drawing on left). This is an ideal application and an efficient use of space when compared to traditional methods.

MODEX provides attendees access to the latest manufacturing and supply chain equipment and technologies. MODEX 2018 will be held April 9-12, 2018 in the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA.

An increasing number of Ryson Spirals are equipped with our proprietary induction and divert conveyor design that allows loads to enter or exit the spiral at intermediate elevation levels.

Ryson Induction and Divert Conveyor

Ryson 30″ and 16″ wide induction conveyors

The Ryson Induction and Divert conveyors are designed as an integral part of our multiple infeed or outfeed spirals. In addition to our belt-type induction conveyors, we have also developed new versions utilizing powered rollers. With 2 options now available, we are able to provide the optimal Induction and Divert Conveyor solution depending on the size and shape of the load that will be handled.

Both belt and roller versions are individually adjustable to match the spiral pitch, assuring a safe and reliable product transfer. These induction conveyors are available for all High Capacity and Wide Trak models and match their 16″, 24″, 30″ and 36″ wide slat widths.

The new Ryson Wide Trak Spirals are in response to our customers’ need to handle bigger loads and reach higher elevations.

Ryson Wide Trak Spirals ConveyorThese spirals can handle a variety of load sizes, big and small with their 30′ wide slats. They are ideal for warehousing and order picking operations.

The Wide Trak Spirals can handle double the weight capacity of our standard spirals, and can provide an elevation change of up to 50 feet with only one drive.

The Wide Trak Spirals can optionally be configured to allow loads to enter and exit the spirals at several intermediate elevations. New special induction and divert out conveyors have individually adjustable conveying surfaces to match the spiral pitch, assuring a safe and reliable product transfer.

The Ryson proprietary slat belt enables a low rolling friction operation without any sliding movements or wear strips. The belt is pulled by a heavy duty steel roller chain and the slats are supported by precision steel roller bearings which ride on a polyurethane surface. This arrangement effectively takes up the side forces created by a tight radius and at the same time increases the load carrying capacity of the belt up to 75 lbs per linear foot. This enables the spirals to start and stop fully loaded and can run at speeds up to 200 fpm. The slats are overlapping and provide a reliable and safe conveying surface.

Ryson Wide Trak spirals Size ChartThe Ryson value proposition is to deliver products with a low total cost of ownership. Ryson Spiral Conveyors need less floor space than conventional conveyors and are also faster and more reliable than any elevator or lift.

All Ryson Spirals are designed for low maintenance and long life. Only high quality components are used throughout.  All bearings are sealed for life and need no further lubrication.  The chain is of heavy duty nickel plated construction and as a result, needs only infrequent lubrication.  The slats are made of a nylon composite, and need no maintenance and can easily be replaced as single components without the use of special tools.

Ryson at promatThis week Ryson is exhibiting at two trade shows at the same time, in the same convention hall. We also officially unveiled our brand new Wide Trak Spiral Conveyor.

The Promat show caters to the warehousing, distribution and logistics markets, and Profood Tech covers the food and drink industry.

We unveiled our Wide Trak Spiral Conveyor at Promat. It has our widest slat width to date – a 30″ wide conveying surface. It can also have an elevation change in excess of 40′, and be configured with intermediate entry and exit points. This makes it ideal for multi-level distribution centers and warehouses.

We have some very BIG news. Make sure you stop by our booth at PROMAT – We will be unvailing our brand new WT Spiral Conveyor.

This new High Capacity Spiral is in response to our customers’ need to handle bigger loads and go to higher elevations. This new spiral is especially well suited for warehousing and order picking systems.

This new spiral can also be configured to allow loads to enter or exit the spiral at intermediate elevations. New special induction and divert conveyors have individually adjustable conveying surfaces to match the spiral pitch, assuring a safe and reliable product transfer.

Ryson Narrow Trak Spiral Conveyor

Visit Ryson at ProFood Tech in Chicago, April 4-6, 2017 in Booth 1207

The Narrow Trak spirals offer a significantly larger elevation change capacity than what is currently available in the small package marketplace. They are also a good alternative to side gripper conveyors because they can run at high speeds and do not need to be adjusted for varying product sizes.
