The Spiral Conveyor Advantage
The OutRunner Spiral conveyor 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, the spiral conveyor design allows each tier to share the load, offering many advantages including great flexibility in loads, speeds and incline angles.
Some products require time to rest for various reasons – bread dough needs time to rise (proofing), some glues or chemical reactions need time to cure, other products need time to cool off or dry after being baked, washed, cooked, etc. A spiral system allows for a very large amount of product to be temporarily held while still being in the production line.
