Spirals take up a fraction of the floor space as compared to other conveying systems. Some of the benefits of spiral conveyor systems include:

  • Vertically merging products from multiple levels onto a single take away conveyor line
  • Increased buffer time for accumulation with minimal floor space

A cost-effective solution for changing elevations, OutRunner Spiral Elevator conveyors give you the capacity to move several product types without taking up valuable floor space.

For elevation change with a minimal footprint, spiral elevator conveyors are ideal. The cost-effective, compact units are not only strong but gentle as well. No pressure is applied to the product so delicate items can pass through it without damage.

The Spiral Elevator Advantage

The OutRunner Spiral Elevator is driven by a single gearmotor, but each 360-degree revolution is individually driven. Rather than trying to drive all of the chain from one end, its design allows each tier to share the load, offering many advantages including great flexibility in loads, speeds and incline angles.
