Ryson is the number one manufacturer of spiral conveyors in the USA.

ryson spiral conveyor modular

A Spiral Conveyor from Ryson needs less floor space than conventional incline conveyors and are also faster and more reliable than any elevator or lift. Central to our design is the proprietary slat-type belts with rolling friction and without any sliding movements or wear-strips.

Ryson Spiral Conveyors are based on an innovative modular technology, offering many features and benefits. 

All Ryson Spiral Conveyors are made to order and comes in a wide range of sizes and configurations. Our proprietary modular design allows Ryson to customize with ease and to modify in the field to accommodate emerging needs.

Ryson Spiral Conveyors have many unique features that make them ideal Vertical Conveying Solutions. Many of our features are designed to save money in the long term, essentially lowering your total cost of ownership.

Design Flexibility: Our unique design offers flexibility of configuration. It also adds the ability to field modify to accommodate changing future needs at a fraction of the cost of a new conveyor.

Overlapping slats provide a smooth and efficient conveying surface, ensuring gentle product handling and suitable for all types of conveyable items. Our efficient rolling friction chain-slat design only needs a single drive, resulting in substantial savings in energy, controls and systems integration.

Our innovative chain-slat design enables a low friction operation without any sliding movements or wear-strips. This allows the Spiral to stop and start fully loaded.

Our efficient rolling friction chain-slat design only needs a single drive, resulting in substantial savings in energy, controls and systems integration.

Most Spirals ship in one piece and leave our factory pre-assembled and pre-tested. Installation is generally an efficient process and reduces time for implantation and integration.

space saving in warehouse with spiralSmall Footprint saves space. Our spiral convey vertically within a very small footprint which is beneficial to reduce production space needed in a new facility and also to replace existing equipment in a very tight layout.

Our Spirals and components are designed for reliability, low maintenance and long life. They have an impressive up-time record reducing the total cost of ownership.

The Spiral Conveyors convey loads up or down in a continuous flow, facilitating high throughput.  Many spirals can operate at speeds in excess of 200 FPM and are optionally reversible.

Only one drive motor is required, resulting in substantial savings in energy, controls and systems integration.

All Ryson Spiral Conveyors are made to order and comes in a wide range of sizes and configurations.

Ryson Spirals are designed for low maintenance and long life.  Only high quality components are used throughout.  All bearings are sealed for life and need no further lubrication.  The chain is of heavy duty nickel plated construction and needs only infrequent lubrication.  The slats are made of a nylon composite, need no maintenance and can easily be replaced as single components without the use of special tools. Ryson has a full staff of factory trained service technicians ready to assist. All of our service techs are PMMI Certified Trainers. All of these factors contribute to Ryson’s low total cost of ownership.

The Ryson modular design makes it easy to field modify our spirals  in case of unplanned installation changes or to reconfigure and repurpose the spirals at a later date. Click to see some examples:

All Ryson Spiral Conveyors are equipped with an automatic chain tensioning device and built-in overload protection as a standard. This helps save both the Spiral and the product it is conveying.

 

Ryson Spirals are powder coated carbon steel with choice of any standard RAL color. They are also available in hybrid versions suitable for wet environments or stainless steel versions for washdown applications.
