Spirals used in Filling Operations
When you think of Ryson Spirals in filling operations, typically you’d think of our Mass Flow Spiral Conveyors. Here is a clever operation utilizing our Case Spirals.
This week we shipped five spirals to a Distillery in the upper Midwest. The plant engineer utilized our 1500-400 model spirals for a new production line.
Incoming cases with empty glass bottles decline (Spiral #1) from a case depalletizer- feeding an un-caser. The empty cases are then feed onto an up spiral (Spiral #2). The cases are conveyed across the plant on an overhead conveyor to a Case packer.
The bottles are then removed from the boxes, filled and put back in the same box. Next, they decline back down (Spiral #3). The packer discharges to an up spiral (#4), which conveys the sealed cases of liquor up into another overhead conveyor. Finally, cases with filled bottles decline (spiral #5) to the floor level and out to a Robotic case palletizer.
The Ryson Unit Load Spiral Conveyors – or case spiral – convey cartons, cases, trays, totes and all sorts of packaged goods up or down in a continuous flow. They feature a small footprint, high speed, low noise, low maintenance and a long life. Ryson Spirals are available in powder coated carbon steel, stainless steel, hybrid and freezer versions.
