This week we are shipping a vertical conveying spiral to a large paint manufacturer to handle rectangular one-gallon cans at a rate of 40 per minute. The in feed is at 7′ – 7″ and the out feed is at 3′ – 11″. This spiral is equipped with 8″ wide slats and has a declination angle of only 7 degrees to accommodate the can’s relatively high center of gravity. The integrator on this project is MaxLine Inc.
The cans were tested at our manufacturing plant before shipping to the customer for installation. All spirals are fully assembled and test run prior to shipping. All but the widest diameter spirals are shipped in once piece, saving time and resources during installation.
