Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor
Handles full bottles as well as empty bottles, cans, jars and many more up to 2,000 units per minute!
The Apollo Mass Flow Spiral Conveyors are perfectly designed for handling full and empty bottles, cans, jars, other similar single containers and many more. The products are conveyed vertically in a continuous mass flow and similar to our other Spiral Conveyors, it saves valuable floor space by means of vertical transportation.

How it works
The design of our Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor is based on the already proven and reliable Apollo Spiral technology: just like the conventional Spiral Conveyor, the Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor runs on only one motor. The products are loaded and guided towards the conveyor belt, after that the products will be transported downwards or upwards. The Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor can be integrated with your conveyor for the most efficient material handling solution.
Because the Mass Flow runs on just one motor, maintenance is low while ensuring a long durability and a long life expectancy. Similar to our other Vertical Spiral Conveyors, the Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor is equipped with a guiding system, including precision low friction bearings: the slats run free from supports so there’s only rolling friction. No lubrication is needed, which results in a low noise level, clean transport and less maintenance. The conveyor can handle up to a high capacity 2.000 units per minute, depending on the unit size and the chosen chain slat width. It is also equipped with an extended in- and outfeed to facilitate smooth side transfer to and from external conveyors. The Mass Flow Vertical Conveying System is designed to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and delivers a high continuous throughput.
For what types of products can it be used?
The Mass Flow Conveyor is especially suited for the food and beverage industry, easily conveying products such as beer bottles, soda cans, yoghurt cups, water bottles, wine bottles or plastic juice cans.
Types and models
The Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor consists of 4 standard set-up models which can be customized and modified in the field to accommodate emerging needs and requirements. All Spirals are equipped with an infeed and outfeed, which can be placed in different directions and can be extended to make the Mass Flow Spiral fit easily into most layouts. Spirals can transport products up and down and can be made reversible, it is also possible to choose from several belt widths and spiral diameters. Additionally a side guard can be selected (coated in a RAL colour of your choice or stainless steel) as well as the base structure and chain configurations.
Apart from the Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor System, we offer many more options for vertical conveying, such as the Single Lane Spiral Conveyor and the Narrow Trak Spiral Conveyor.
