Continuously conveying full and empty bottles, cans, jars and similar containers up or down are mass flow spiral conveyors. The conveyor’s small footprint yields space savings. Equipped with extended in- and out-feed tangents to facilitate smooth side transfer to and from external conveyors, the spirals come with 12-, 16- or 20-inch wide slats. Capacities reach 2,000 bottles or cans per minute. Powdered coated carbon steel, stainless steel and washdown finishes may be specified. Ryson, 757-898-1530, www.ryson.com
