A Testament to Smooth Product Handling

Smooth Product Handling: This week we shipped two model 2300-400 spirals to a specialty packaging manufacturer. This spiral model is typically used for high volume mass flow of glass bottles and cans, but because of this special application, we substituted our mass flow slats with our standard carton and case (overlapping-style) slats.

The customer needed to incline stacks of bliss box ends at 90 fpm with no orientation change and without shingling. Because the stacks were not strapped together, a delicate ride and a low angle of incline was required for smooth product handling.

Pre-testing of the various products was done at our Yorktown, Virginia manufacturing facility and it was ultimately determined that this wide-diameter model would work perfectly for their application. Our chain and overlapping slat design allows smooth transportation of the stacks at around a 3.8 degree inclination angle.

One of our field technicians will be on-site in the coming weeks to assist in the re-assembly and start-up of their system.  For more information on special applications solutions, visit www.ryson.com, or browse through our weekly blog.
