Conveying with Spiral Conveyors
Convey products from level-to-level in a small footprint

conveyors are ideal to transfer loads from level to level quickly and
efficiently, without interrupting the conveyor process, without extra manual
handling or transfers to other equipment. They're ideal for
multilevel buildings, or elevated conveyor lines.
Spiral conveyor advantages
- Small operating footprint: For space savings, it's difficult
to imagine a solution that out performs spiral conveying
- High throughput: Spirals convey the load in a
continuous flow, creating high throughput. Ryson spirals can operate at
speeds up to 200 FPM - and many can be reversed
- Single drive: Typically, only one drive is required for spiral
conveying. This means cost savings, noticeable energy savings, and
easier controls integration
- Ease of installation: Many spirals are shipped as
one piece, pre-assembled and tested
Convey cartons, totes, or any other load from level-to-level with unit load spiral conveyors & lowerators. Ryson Spiral Conveyors need less floor space than conventional conveyors and are faster and more reliable than any elevator or lift.
In dual-track spiral conveyors, 2 tracks operate within 1 spiral, allowing cases to be conveyed in either direction. Both tracks can convey loads up or down,
and can be reversed. The system allows for further space savings in a small footprint, and offers versatility when conveying cases.
Handles double the capacity of conventional conveyors and ship in one piece to reduce time and cost installation costs. Since the load capacity is 75 pounds per linear foot of conveyor for speeds up to 200 feet per minute, a wide variety of loads can be conveyed on these systems.
Loads can enter these conveyors from different locations and elevations, when loads are uniform in both size and weight. Speedy induction conveyors provide controlled entry to the spiral tower. Traffic controls are required to prevent loads
entering from different levels colliding in the spiral.
Conveyors handle bottles, cans, jars and other similar containers. Products are conveyed up or down in a continuous mass flow. Excellent for bottlers, recyclers, and other applications where many similarly-sized items must be conveyed vertically, en masse.
Utilize overhead space for dynamic storage and buffering through reversible spiral conveyors that aid in cooling, drying or curing processes and spacing goods while preserving precious floor space.
Compact in size, this spiral conveyor handles small loads with space saving agility by only taking up a centerline diameter of less than 4 feet. Capable of high throughput with remarkable elevation change between infeed and outfeed.
Fiberglass spiral chutes save floor space while delivering loads from level-to-level (multilevel installations, mezzanines, overhead conveyors, or machinery). Can be interfaced with conveyor lines, workstations, or other equipment on the decline side.
Spiral conveyors are high-throughput, small footprint conveying solutions
For high-throughput applications, spirals are ideal. We have
utilized them in snack food applications where space was tight and high
rates of throughput were needed to deliver cartons from suspended belt
conveyor systems. Multiple cartons are always
packed into the conveyor, where an incline can process a few (based on
capacity rating and spacing) and a VRC typically just one.
