Manufacturing companies are often looking for reliable and flexible equipment that preforms its duties with little to no interruptions for maintenance or change-parts. They need to reliably move items from one area of production to another quickly, efficiently and without interruption.

Often times machinery is so specialized, that conveying from one process to another is a lower priority in the design plan. Then when it comes time to layout the product flow, there isn’t any floorspace available. That is where Ryson equipment comes into play.

Ryson Spiral conveyors are a very efficient vertical conveyor that takes up very little floorspace. They are often used to transport product from production to the packaging area – sometimes on a different level. They integrate well with horizontal conveyors, and can also be used to add drying, cooling or curing time to a process. Depending on the shape, size and weight, Ryson has a highly configurable solution for your vertical conveying needs.

Save valuable floorspace
Ryson Spiral Conveyors

Save Space

The Ryson Spiral Conveyors need less floor space than conventional conveyors and are faster and more reliable than any elevator or lift. Lifting conveyor lines overhead makes more room for production and prevents land-locking between processes.

Low Maintenance

Low maintenance means low down time. Ryson equipment has a reliable up-time record, leaving you to focus on production.

Reliable Conveying Surface

Our slat-style belt enables a low rolling friction operation without any sliding movements or wear strips. The load carrying capacity of the belt up to 75 lbs per linear foot. It enables our Spiral Conveyors to start and stop fully loaded and facilitates high speed, low noise and long life.

From Process to Storage:

Spiral Conveyors can be used to transport materials from a process to a storage or packaging area. Our conveying surface can handle temperature up to 180ºF so they are frequently used to convey hot material slowly, allowing the product to cool or cure during transit. Because the conveying surface in a Ryson spiral rolls on its support structure, rather than sliding, the spiral can start and stop as often as required, even fully loaded, allowing product to be indexed, slowing and surging to balance product flow on the production line.

Feeding Multiple Hoppers:

Our Bucket Elevators are ideally suited to deliver granular materials to hoppers or mixers. They can also be configured to have multiple individually selectable discharge stations. This flexibility allows a single Bucket Elevator to feed multiple stations at different locations.

Overhead Transportation:

Another common application for Spiral Conveyors it to transport parts or sub-assemblies to a different part of the building. To save production floorspace this transportation may happen overhead or even on a different level of the building. This is also beneficial because it helps prevent lang-locking different areas of the production area.

No matter what your process is, and what you manufacture, Ryson equipment is the go-to solution for conveying vertically – with a very small footprint. The Ryson modular design has been field tested for decades and has proven to be a reliable, and efficient solution to vertical conveying – with a track record of superior up-time and low maintenance.

Vertical Accumulation Buffer

Configure two Ryson Spirals to preserve valuable floor space white sending product overhead for overhead dynamic storage or buffering. The Ryson Accumulation Buffers can be used to provide dynamic storage where products need time for cooling, drying or curing. Additional dynamic buffer storage capacity can be obtained by adding pairs of spirals.

Bucket Elevators are heavy duty, totally enclosed, have pivoting buckets and can be supplied with multiple in and outlets. Ryson’s Bucket Elevators or Bucket Conveyors combine vertical and horizontal transportation of bulk materials in one robust unit. Their modular design and configurable options make them a unique and highly effective solution for your bulk material conveyor needs.

The Ryson Unit Load Spiral Conveyors – or case spiral – can convey cartons, cases, trays, totes and all sorts of packaged goods up or down in a continuous flow. Central to our design is the Ryson proprietary slat-style belts designed with rolling friction without any sliding movements or wear strips. This facilitates a small footprint, high speed, low noise, low maintenance and a long life. Ryson Spirals are available in powder coated carbon steel, stainless steel, hybrid and freezer versions.
