Custom Designed Floor-to-floor Spiral Conveyors Saves Space

Ryson Floor-to-floor Spiral Conveyors are commonly known for the floor space they save, but they can also save money when it comes to transporting materials between floors.

Belt incline (or decline) conveyors often require a large floor penetration because of the conservative angle required for product’s stability and the clearance needed for its height.  A spiral conveyor needs a much smaller opening, but sometimes space restrictions or other structural issues prohibit a simple way for the spiral conveyor to extend through the floor.

Custom Designed Floor-to-floor Spiral from Ryson
Because space was so tight, a custom infeed angle was engineered, and the spiral will be shipped in two pieces to aide in the tight installation

That’s the challenge our Systems Integrator,  Industrial Process Automation of Puerto Rico, faced when designing a packaging line for a food manufacturer. They designed the system to decline sealed cases through a small penetration in the second floor, to a Ryson Spiral Conveyor, which accepts the cases just below that floor. Space restraints required a custom engineered infeed that is at the same angle as their belt decline conveyor.

Because the Floor-to-floor spiral conveyor will be so close to the ceiling, it is being shipped in two sections. The installation crew will hoist the upper section from the second floor, while positioning the lower section in place under it. The upper section will then be lowered and the splice joints reconnected.

Being able to work with our systems integrators to come up with custom engineered solutions is part of what sets Ryson International apart. If you have a challenging project requiring vertical conveying, check out www.ryson.com for more information about our spiral conveyors.
