Spiral conveyors are a great solution to achieve vertical conveying of your product and are widely used in a wide range of industries and different types of spiral conveyors are available to meet the different needs of different products and environments.

We offer three types of Spiral Conveyors:
- Unit Load Spiral Conveyor
- Narrow Track Spiral Conveyor
- Dual Track Spiral Conveyor
Unit Load Spiral Conveyor
A Unit load spiral conveyor, is one of the most popular material handling spiral conveyors in the market, both in food and non-food industry and has been proven effective in light-duty and heavy-duty conditions.
They offer flexible layout options and operate at speeds of up to 60m/ min. They commonly use either a 400mm or 600mm slat chain resulting in an outer diameter of 1,800mm to 2,000mm.
Narrow Track Spiral Conveyor
Narrow Track Spiral Conveyors offer a more compact design that minimises the Spiral's foot print and power consumption, and are especially suitable for the light-duty conveying of small size objects.
They commonly use either a 135mm or 165mm slat chain. The outer diameter of type 135 is 1300mm and 1365mm for the 165mm versions.
Dual Track Spiral Conveyor
Dual track spiral conveyors operate with two independent tracks driven by two motors which doubles the throughput compared to other single track spirals. The operation of each track is flexible, and adapts to the diversified needs of a modern factory.
Different track widths of the slat chain are optional.
The slat width of each track is customisable and 135mm, 165mm, 250mm, 400mm and 600mm are standard widths, other widths on request. Each track is equipped with an independent motor. SEW motor as standard. Other brands available as an option.
