This week we performed a customer video testing of 50 lb. bags of pet food in one of our test spirals. This included fully loading the spiral with bags and running at the line speed that the end-user will be running.
We video-taped a start-stop test showing that the spiral can start fully-loaded with up to 1,800 lbs. of product and that the bags would not re-orient or slide back during intermittent operation of the line.
Finally, the video-tape showed the areas potentially affected in the event of a leaking bag on the spiral and our options available to allow for thorough cleaning of that residue.
Ryson is happy to offer video product testing for our customers. It is part of our commitment to customer service, and is a win-win because it allows them to better familiarize themselves with our equipment, and be assured how smoothly their product will be conveyed on a Ryson Spiral. It can also address any concerns they might have specific to the shape/size/weight of the unit they are trying to convey. It also gives us the opportunity to give recommendations to address any concerns – all before a final model/design is chosen.
You can easily contact us with your spiral project questions, and we will respond promptly. You can also read more application stories about Ryson Spirals handling bags. You can also watch some Ryson Spiral application examples on our YouTube Channel.
