Key’s VERYX belt sorter utilizes top and bottom sensors

Key Technology, a member of the Duravant family of operating companies, presents its most versatile VERYX belt-fed digital sorters, with specific design elements that benefit vegetable processors producing multiple products.

VERYX is the world’s only belt-fed sorter that can inspect product entirely in-air with top and bottom sensors in order to detect and eliminate all foreign material (FM) and the right amount of product defects to make grade. Featuring Key’s unique recipe-driven operation, along with the ideal hardware and software to sort any number of different products, VERYX can be changed over to handle a new product in seconds. With sort recipes saved to memory for quick recall, VERYX eases use and ensures repeatable results to optimize product quality and maximize yield.

For processors of both canned and frozen vegetables that are sorting a variety of wet products prior to blanching, Key tailors each belt-fed VERYX with the ideal sensors, sensor positions, lighting, ejection system, product handling and software dedicated to the processor’s products and objectives. Capable of detecting color, size, shape and structural properties of every object, including the presence or absence of chlorophyll, VERYX removes insects, animal parts, paperboard, wood, rocks, plastics, glass and extraneous vegetative matter (EVM) such as weeds and other plant materials, as well as product defects. VERYX comes in different sizes to satisfy a range of production capacity requirements.

VERYX can be configured to sort virtually any vegetable. It comes programmed, ready to run all the products specified by the customer. Recipes can be uploaded for each product type and/or for each final product specification, as defined by the processor.
