Ryson Spirals shown on “Ultimate Factories” in Coca Cola Bottling Plant
One of Coca-Cola’s new bottling plants was featured on National Geographic Channel’s Ultimate Factories Series. A Ryson Spiral Conveyor was shown in the packaging process of both the bottle and can lines.
Machines in this modern Coca-Cola bottling plant pump out almost 800 bottles per minute and cans are filled at an astonishing rate of up to 1,700 cans per minute in a process more complex than meets the eye. Maintenance and down time is costly to the company when it interrupts production. That is why top quality equipment like Ryson Spiral Conveyors are finding their way to the most modern and efficient plants in the world.
You can view all segments of National Geographic – Ultimate Factories Coca Cola here. The Ryson Case Elevator on the bottling line is featured in Part 2 (4 minutes in). The spiral conveyor moving fridge packs are featured in part 3 (at 2 minutes). There are 8 Ryson Spirals installed in this modern bottling plant, moving cases, trays and fridge packs from packaging to palletizing areas. This plant is near Baton Rouge, LA and the systems integrator on the project is Sentry Equipment.
This is an impressive new plant and Ryson International is proud to have vertical conveying solutions there and in many of the top branded packaging companies in the world.
