Wide Trak Spiral
A Spiral for the Big Loads
The new Ryson Wide Trak Spirals are in response to our customers’ need to handle bigger loads and reach higher elevations.
These spirals can handle a variety of load sizes, big and small with their 30′ wide slats. The Wide Trak Spirals can handle double the weight capacity of our standard spirals, and can provide an elevation change of up to 50 feet with only one drive. They are ideal for warehousing and order picking operations.
The Wide Trak Spirals can also optionally be configured to allow loads to enter and exit the spirals at several intermediate elevations. New special induction and divert conveyors have individually adjustable conveying surfaces to match the spiral pitch, assuring a safe and reliable product transfer.
The Ryson value proposition is to deliver products with a low total cost of ownership. Ryson Spiral Conveyors need less floor space than conventional conveyors and are also faster and more reliable than any elevator or lift. All Ryson Spirals are also designed for low maintenance and long life and 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 as a result, needs only infrequent lubrication. The slats are made of a nylon composite, and need no maintenance and can easily be replaced as single components without the use of special tools.

Our innovative modular design can be customized with ease or be modified economically in the field to accommodate changing needs. All spirals are made to order and are available in 4 basic configurations ( A, B, C and D), accommodating most requirements relating to the location of the in and out feed tangents. All configurations 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. Samples A-EX, B-MA and C-EX are shown.
Proprietary Slat Belt:
This innovative belt enables a low rolling friction operation without any sliding movements or wear strips. 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 spirals to start and stop fully loaded and can run at speeds up to 200 fpm. The slats are overlapping and provide a reliable and safe conveying surface.

Controls and Integration:
Each spiral includes an inverter duty gear motor and two proximity switches, one to sense a slack chain and one to sense any overload. A Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) is required for proper operation of the spiral. Several pre-wiring and controls options are available. Visit www.ryson.com for more information.
All Ryson Spirals are thoroughly shop tested prior to shipment, but depend on proper integration with the overall conveyor system for optimum performance. Spiral integration instructions are available on www.ryson.com or give us
