Save Floor Space with Vertical Spiral Conveyor

Space savings is one of the many benefits of spiral incline or decline conveyor. Spirals take up a fraction of the floor space of traditional conveyor, resulting in potentially significant financial savings. Merging capabilities on or off the conveyor is another advantage. Pick modules specifically benefit with vertically merging products from multiple levels onto one take away conveyor line. Accumulation of product is another benefit provided by spiral conveyors which allows increased buffer time with requiring minimal floor space.

Accumulating Spiral Incline and Decline Conveyors

Accumulating products is essential to most conveyor applications, yet not many spiral conveyors can accumulate. Through the utilization of 24V DC technology, the spiral conveyor can be divided into separate accumulation zones with each accumulation zone being controlled independently. This ability to accumulate product allows for more buffering time between operations and is a tremendous use of floor space. Bastian Solutions has pioneered the advancement of zero pressure accumulating spiral conveyors. These units can add a significant amount of accumulation to your conveyor system.

Continuous Chain-Slat Spiral Incline and Decline Conveyors

Continuous chain-slat conveyors are controlled by one drive unit and are extremely simple and robust workhorses. Other than a chain-slat, motor and a couple photo eyes, there is very little to these units. Installation is relatively simple since the units ship assembled. Once the unit is raised into position and power is connected, the unit is ready for operation. They are extremely efficient and reliable means to conveying products from one elevation to another.

Helix Belt Spiral Incline and Decline Conveyors

If there is middle ground in the world of spiral incline and decline conveyors it would be the Helix Spiral Incline and Decline conveyor. This unit offers similar reliable transportation capabilities of the chain-slat conveyor and product accumulation features of an accumulating spiral incline/decline conveyor.  A helix belt spiral incline/decline conveyor is comprised of a series of 90 or 180 degree belted conveyor sections (each with their own drive) put together. The belt is captured on the outside radius thus eliminating any tracking concerns. Since each section has its own drive, photo eyes can be added to allow for accumulation of products.

Dual Lane Spiral Incline and Decline Conveyors

In many applications multiple conveyor lines need to be elevated.  The dual lane spiral incline/decline design allows multiple conveyor lines to share one central column.  This not only allows for space savings, but also financial savings.

Spiral Incline and Decline Conveyors with Multiple Merge Points

The ability to merge onto and divert off of one spiral conveyor is a relatively new advancement in spiral conveyor technology.  Just as you would merge onto or exit off a spiral ramp in a parking garage, this technology allows for considerable space savings and is especially beneficially in pick module applications.

Spiral Chutes

Gravity controlled spiral chutes are another option for declining product.  This is an extremely economical option.  However, considerable evaluation should be given to each application and product specifications.
