The new Ryson Wide Trak Spirals are in response to our customers’ need to handle bigger loads and reach higher elevations.
These spirals can handle a variety of load sizes, big and small with their 30′ wide slats. They are ideal for warehousing and order picking operations.
The Wide Trak Spirals can handle double the weight capacity of our standard spirals, and can provide an elevation change of up to 50 feet with only one drive.
The Wide Trak Spirals can optionally be configured to allow loads to enter and exit the spirals at several intermediate elevations. New special induction and divert out conveyors have individually adjustable conveying surfaces to match the spiral pitch, assuring a safe and reliable product transfer.
The Ryson proprietary slat belt enables a low rolling friction operation without any sliding movements or wear strips. The belt is pulled by a heavy duty steel roller chain and the slats are supported by precision steel roller bearings which ride on a polyurethane surface. This arrangement effectively takes up the side forces created by a tight radius and at the same time increases the load carrying capacity of the belt up to 75 lbs per linear foot. This enables the spirals to start and stop fully loaded and can run at speeds up to 200 fpm. The slats are overlapping and provide a reliable and safe conveying surface.
The Ryson value proposition is to deliver products with a low total cost of ownership. Ryson Spiral Conveyors need less floor space than conventional conveyors and are also faster and more reliable than any elevator or lift.
All Ryson Spirals are designed for low maintenance and long life. Only high quality components are used throughout. All bearings are sealed for life and need no further lubrication. The chain is of heavy duty nickel plated construction and as a result, needs only infrequent lubrication. The slats are made of a nylon composite, and need no maintenance and can easily be replaced as single components without the use of special tools.
