The Impact of Spiral Conveyors on the Supply Chain

The Ryson Wide Track and High Capacity Spiral Conveyors are ideal in multi-level warehousing operations and Omni channel distribution centers. The High Capacity unit can reach 35 feet high using a single drive motor, resulting in substantial savings in energy, controls and system integration. The load capacity is 75 lbs. per linear foot of conveyor for speeds up to 200 FPM. The total weight capacity in the spiral at any one time is 3600 lbs. The Ryson Multiple Entry and Exit Spiral allows loads to enter or exit the High Capacity Spirals and Wide Trak Spirals at intermediate elevations. This is a perfect application for omni channel warehouses, micro distribution centers and ecommerce order picking operations. Loads can enter or exit the spirals at multiple elevations. This multi level spiral concept is also commonly used in applications where a single spiral is utilized for multiple packaging and manufacturing or packaging lines. The Ryson Wide Track Spirals can handle a variety of load sizes, big and small with their 30” or 36” wide slats. For more information, visit –
