The Wide Trak Spirals can handle double the weight capacity of standard spirals, and can provide an elevation change of up to 50 ft. with only one drive. The Ryson proprietary slat belt enables a low rolling friction operation without any sliding movements or wear strips. The load carrying capacity of the belt is up to 75 lbs./linear ft. This enables the spirals to start and stop fully loaded, and they can run at speeds up to 200 fpm. The slats are overlapping and provide a reliable and safe conveying surface.
The Wide Trak Spirals can optionally be configured to allow loads to enter and exit the spirals at several intermediate elevations. Ryson spiral conveyors need less floor space than conventional conveyors and are also faster and more reliable than any elevator or lift.
