The Ryson High Capacity and Wide Track Spirals can be configured to allow loads to enter or exit at several intermediate elevations.

Ancillary induction and divert conveyors can be utilized to allow loads to enter or exit the spiral at intermediate elevations. An ideal spacesaving solution for multi-tiered product flow – like pick modules.

This is a perfect application for multi-level warehousing, e-commerce and other order picking operations. Loads can enter or exit the spirals at multiple elevations, reducing floorspace and the number of elevating conveyors. This concept is also commonly used in applications where a single spiral is utilized for multiple production or packaging lines.

Our proprietary induction conveyor uses powered rollers introduce loads onto the spiral. They are designed with the spiral’s radius and are adjustable to match the pitch of the spiral, assuring a safe and reliable product transfer.

Our Divert Out Conveyors have a pivoting arm with a powered face belt assuring proper product orientation and gentle handling when diverting out of the spiral at intermediate elevations. The powered out feed conveyor is similar to the induction conveyor in that they have individually adjustable rollers that allows you to match the spiral pitch, assuring a reliable product transfer out of the spiral.

The multiple entry and exit spirals are equipped with slats that have special rounded friction inserts. They provide just enough friction to prevent products from back sliding without preventing smooth side movement during induction or diverting out.

Integrated traffic controls are required for all Multiple Entry and Exit Spirals. There are some limitations with regards to the placement (location) of these ancillary conveyors so we encourage you to contact the Ryson sales team for layout assistance early in your project.

These conveyors are manufactured by Ryson and have the high quality and long life that our customers have come to expect from us.

All Ryson Spirals are thoroughly shop tested prior to shipment, but they do depend on proper integration with the overall conveyor system for optimum performance and long life.

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.

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 proprietary low friction chain slat belt allow Ryson Spiral Conveyors to operate within a small footprint, saving valuable floor space. See the chart below for specific dimensions on our most popular models.


Our innovative modular design allows Ryson to customize any spiral conveyor with ease and can also be economically modified in the field to accommodate changing needs.  All spiral conveyors are made to order and  can operate up or down in a clockwise or counterclockwise rotation and can optionally be reversible.  The position and length of the in feed tangent on up spirals and out feed tangent on down spirals can be customized to meet specific layout requirements. 

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

This innovative belt enables a low rolling friction operation without any sliding movements or wear strips on the spiral conveyor.  The belt is pulled by a heavy duty steel roller chain and the slats are supported by precision steel roller bearings which ride on a polyurethane surface.  This arrangement effectively takes up the side forces created by a tight radius and at the same time increases the load carrying capacity of the belt up to 75 lbs per linear foot.  This enables the spiral conveyors to start and stop fully loaded and facilitates high speed, low noise and long life.

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.

Our proprietary chain slat belt assures a low noise operation, less than 75 db in most cases.

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:

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.

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.
