One of Ryson’s commitments to excellence is that we run and test each unit prior to spiral shipping. This helps assure an smooth installation on site. The challenge is that some of the newer spiral models we manufacture are taller than our building.
Last week, we shipped one of our tallest spirals, but had to test it outdoors. Thanks to our new bay door, this was made much easier to accomplish.
This 2200-760 model spiral features an over 30’ feet elevation change and is equipped with a 30” wide slats. It will be conveying products of varying product sizes, but the key design consideration is that we had to have enough clearance between turns to convey a 40” maximum tall carton.
This unit uses our standard modular design and only requires one drive motor only to operate at speeds up to 200 fpm. The weight capacity is at 75lbs. per foot with a maximum capacity of 3,600lbs fully loaded.
Power efficiency is the name of the game and it is part of our constant effort to lower the total cost of ownership to our end users.This project was built for our integrator partner Siggins to be installed in a warehouse for an industry leader in the storage industry. This spiral was shipped on a flatbed in one piece to minimize the reassemble and installation time on site.
Before Spiral shipping, live FATs and video FATs are available upon request. find out more information about Wide Trak shipping and site support, on our weekly news blog.
Ryson Case Spirals in Filling Operations: Here, Ryson Spirals convey boxes of empty bottle to a filling station. The bottles are then removed from the boxes, filled and put back in the same box. Spirals then send them to a robotic case palletizer.
