Special Installation of a Two Piece Spiral

Due to Ryson’s modular design, our Spirals can be designed to be shipped in two (or more) sections. Often a two piece spiral can simplify installation, as this weeks story illustrates.

Ryson Two Piece Spiral
This Installation used a Ryson Spiral shipped in two pieces to ease installation through a small mezzanine opening.

This week, we follow up with a manufacturing story and report about the installation of a spiral that shipped in two pieces to facilitate the installation for our integrator partner, Volm Companies. Their customer, a fresh produce packer and distributor is utilizing a 1700-600 spiral that will take cases of produce down from a mezzanine deck to the floor level.

The 20’ tall spiral will handle 50 lb. cases at rates up to 25 per minute once the plant is up and running.

Our PMMI Certified Trainer technician  joined Volm’s on-site millwright to supervise in the installation of the machine and conduct training to the customer’s maintenance team. The project had been scheduled for installation in June, but in the midsts of the COVID pandemic, things were delayed.

The spiral will pass through a hole penetration in the mezzanine.  They hoisted the upper section up through the opening, while setting the lower section below, onto it’s legs and then lower the upper half to join the flanged center tube.

As is often the case, a Ryson Spiral is the first thing to be placed during an installation, and it helps determine the position of  the rest of the conveyor line.

Find more information about the many ways a Ryson Spiral can be customized to adapt to special requirements, or read more application stories on our weekly news blog.
