Spiral Chutes from Interroll Portec provide a safe and economical way to
lower products from mezzanines,
work platforms, overhead conveyor lines,
pick modules, or multi-level installations of any kind.
Specially designed fiberglass
module profiles help control the descending
speed of your products. In
high humidity situations, the self starting
characteristics of the gel-coated fiberglass
assists products to flow freely,
gently and safely.
A ChuteMaster spiral chute is built with standardized 90 fiberglass
modules and an exit scoop. Entry and exit slides, and/or sort tables can be
customized to your application.
These components are made of durable hand-laid fiberglass and have a special
gel-coating to provide long wearing low-friction
The spiral chute provides at least three times the floor space savings over conventional decline conveyors.
Greater space savings can be realized by multi-floor applications. The size of the chute allows it to be used in tight
situations, such as elevator shafts and other small spaces.

The ChuteMaster Fiberglass Spiral Chute saves floor space, is economical and virtually maintenance free. It provides a safe, secure means of lowering your products. Specially designed fiberglass module profiles help control the descending speed of your products. In high humidity situations, the self-starting characteristics of the gel-coated fiberglass assists products to flow freely, gently and safely.
An efficient and effective design that utilizes gravity and skatewheels to move trays from one level to another. Each module has a flat bottom with vertical sides to contain the trays/totes and assist in maintaining tray/tote orientation. Product descent is controlled through the unique spiral design. It is constructed out of durable hand-laid fiberglass and is an inexpensive alternative to conventional equipment.

"Spiral conveyors transfer loads from level to level quickly and efficiently, without interrupting the conveying process, without extra manual handling or transfers to other equipment. They're ideal for mezzanines, multilevel buildings, or elevated conveyor lines. Because they convey loads continuously, they're extremely fast and utilize little space in vertical conveying applications. Multiple cartons are always packed into spirals, where inclines can process only a few. Call or chat us today for help."

Space savings is one of the many benefits of spiral incline or decline conveyor. Spirals take up a fraction of the floor space of traditional conveyor, resulting in potentially significant financial savings. Merging capabilities on or off the conveyor is another advantage. Pick modules specifically benefit with vertically merging products from multiple levels onto one take away conveyor line. Accumulation of product is another benefit provided by spiral conveyors which allows increased buffer time with requiring minimal floor space.
Accumulating products is essential to most conveyor applications, yet not many spiral conveyors can accumulate. Through the utilization of 24V DC technology, the spiral conveyor can be divided into separate accumulation zones with each accumulation zone being controlled independently. This ability to accumulate product allows for more buffering time between operations and is a tremendous use of floor space. Bastian Solutions has pioneered the advancement of zero pressure accumulating spiral conveyors. These units can add a significant amount of accumulation to your conveyor system.
Continuous chain-slat conveyors are controlled by one drive unit and are extremely simple and robust workhorses. Other than a chain-slat, motor and a couple photo eyes, there is very little to these units. Installation is relatively simple since the units ship assembled. Once the unit is raised into position and power is connected, the unit is ready for operation. They are extremely efficient and reliable means to conveying products from one elevation to another.
If there is middle ground in the world of spiral incline and decline conveyors it would be the Helix Spiral Incline and Decline conveyor. This unit offers similar reliable transportation capabilities of the chain-slat conveyor and product accumulation features of an accumulating spiral incline/decline conveyor. A helix belt spiral incline/decline conveyor is comprised of a series of 90 or 180 degree belted conveyor sections (each with their own drive) put together. The belt is captured on the outside radius thus eliminating any tracking concerns. Since each section has its own drive, photo eyes can be added to allow for accumulation of products.
In many applications multiple conveyor lines need to be elevated. The dual lane spiral incline/decline design allows multiple conveyor lines to share one central column. This not only allows for space savings, but also financial savings.
The ability to merge onto and divert off of one spiral conveyor is a relatively new advancement in spiral conveyor technology. Just as you would merge onto or exit off a spiral ramp in a parking garage, this technology allows for considerable space savings and is especially beneficially in pick module applications.
Gravity controlled spiral chutes are another option for declining product. This is an extremely economical option. However, considerable evaluation should be given to each application and product specifications.

The Apollo Single Lane Spiral Conveyor transports products up or down in a continuous flow, and has proven to be a very reliable concept which increases efficiency while conserving valuable floor space.
The JP Spiral Belt Conveyor is designed for hygienic conveying of packed or unpacked products. The rigid construction and the strong hybrid belt allow high capacity conveying. This makes the conveyor ideal for highly demanding food-processing industries. The flat belt surface is suitable for variety of loads. The conveyor belt combines plastic panels with stainless-steel rods. This design provides a very smooth and efficient conveying surface.
The Vertical Spiral Conveyor consists of a moving belt which revolves around a central column. It can be used to move a wide range of products between floor levels or over walkways. The belt guide system runs on precision bearings so there is only rolling friction and noise level is very low.
There are multiple products which are suitable such as; bags, bundles, totes, trays, cans, bottles, containers, cartons and wrapped and unwrapped items. Spiral Conveyors are able to work many types of industries: food industry, beverage industry, newspaper industry, pet food & personal care industry and others.
At MONK Conveyors we can design and install conveyor systems using the J P Poerink Spiral Belt Conveyor system. Our engineers have a vast experience of designing and installing efficient handling systems.
The all-plastic contact surface ensures an excellent product release of unpacked food products such as poultry, meat and fish. The open design allows for an exceptionally large open area (up to 67 percent when the belt is expanded).
JP FD Spirals have a compact and floor space-saving design. With their small footprint and a curve radius of 1.5 x belt width they optimise your floor capacity. The compact spiral fits into almost any plant design.
The use of bearings in the chain ensures a low friction coefficient and the spiral is diven by just one motor for up to 50 metres of belt length. Long tracks mean fewer transfers and therefore economical conveyance.
