Custom Engineering: One of the many benefits of the Ryson proprietary modular design is that we can extend the spirals lower section (the infeed in the case of an up spiral, or at the out feed of a down spiral). This comes in handy when placing the spiral into an existing layout, where our integrator needs to fill in the gap between existing line conveyors and machinery. This is common when we’re replacing vertical case elevators and it allows us to swap that less-reliable, less flexible, lower throughput technology with our less complex, high throughput conveyor over a weekend.
The photo shows one of our Hybrid stainless steel washdown spirals that was designed to fit into an existing line layout. The extended infeed also saved our Integrator partner, Kaufman Engineered Systems, an additional section of driven conveyor, saving on additional implementation cost and higher on-going energy costs. This spiral was also outfitted with a pre-wired motor disconnect switch, another way we save our integrators on field wiring expenses.
This is one way that Ryson equipment can lower your over-all cost of ownership. To find out more, please visit www.ryson.com.
