What Is a Spiral Conveyor?

Like its name suggests, a spiral conveyor uses power or gravity to transport objects to different elevations via a looped design that saves floor space. It can be used in tight spaces and is capable of handling slow speeds or rapid acceleration and deceleration.

There are different types of spiral conveyor systems:

  • Spiral accumulation conveyor—Allows the conveyor to store products, feed them onto other areas of the conveyor and control their movement. This type of conveyor is typically used for applications such as assembly lines, packaging systems and material sorting.
  • Gravity spiral conveyor—Uses a wide bed of skate wheels and gravity to control material movement. Conveyed items are gravity fed down an inclined plane, which provides a smooth, continuous flow due to the low-friction surface. This type of conveyor is typically used for packaging lines and sorting systems, providing an efficient and effective solution for moving items from one level to another. This type is also available as a gravity roller spiral conveyor, which has rollers that move items via gravity.
  • Spiral chute conveyor—A reasonably priced alternative that uses gravity to move soft goods or items in envelopes. A spiral chute conveyor has fewer turns, as opposed to other types of spiral conveyors, which means items may travel at a faster speed and may come out at a less-than-optimal orientation.
