The new Ryson High Capacity Spirals are in response to customer needs to go higher and handle more weight. The new spirals handle double the capacity of the company’s regular spirals and ship in one piece, drastically reducing the time and cost of installation.

The load capacity is 75 lbs per linear foot of conveyor for speeds up to 200 feet per minute. The total weight capacity in the spiral at any one time is 3200 lbs. Only one drive motor is required, resulting in substantial savings in energy, controls and system integration. Models with 16-inch and 24-inch wide slats are currently available. Ryson Spiral Conveyors need less floor space than conventional conveyors and are faster and more reliable than any elevator or lift.

All Ryson Spirals are of the chain slat type and incorporate a unique proprietary low friction design which facilitates high speed, low noise, smooth operation and long life. An innovative modular design allows Ryson to customize with ease and modify in the field to accommodate emerging needs.

Ryson Spiral Conveyors support sustainability. They consume less energy and need less floor space than conventional methods. Ryson Spirals require little maintenance. All bearings are sealed for life and do not need further lubrication. The Mass Flow Spirals do not require water lubricants for proper flow. All Ryson spirals are modular in design and are easily convertible.

Ryson specializes in vertical conveying solutions and is the number one manufacturer of spiral conveyors in the USA. All products can be delivered in powder coated carbon steel, stainless steel or washdown versions.
