How to install a tall spiral in a tight space.

This week we shipped a tall spiral that left our factory floor in five sections. This 35′ tall Spiral – High Capacity 1700-600 – will be installed in an existing 3 level order picking mezzanine, so it would be impossible to install it in one piece.

Our Integrator Partner, lntelligrated, worked with our engineering and service departments on a method of rigging the five sections by stacking them on top of each other, because the deck penetrations are internal to the structure and each section needs to pass through the clearance between levels, which is why you see the castered base sections in the time lapse video below.

Disassembling a tall spiral 5-piece

 

This tall spiral will be running at 180 feet per minute and will see a throughput rate of  30 products per minute. It will be one of seven spirals implemented into the distribution centers layout, including one in a -10 degree F freezer. This spiral also has an induction conveyor on level 2 where sealed cases and totes will be inducted into the spiral.

We will be sending one of our senior technicians to the project site to assist the lntelligrated riggers and millwrights on the installation and re-assembly of this tall spiral. We also plan a future site visit to oversee start-up and provide operator and maintenance personnel training on the use and care of our spirals.

This project was an example of how Ryson’s modular design and flexibility allowed us to support our integrator partners with a solution to a rather challenging project. It’s not the kind of project we do every day, but it is a testament to our customer support and the flexibility of our products.
