Key Technology introduces the Veryx B210a high-capacity digital sorter. With an inspection area over 80 in. wide, the belt-fed Veryx B210 maximizes throughput on high-capacity lines. Like all sorters in the Veryx family, the new B210 features advanced detection technology and a system architecture that improve sorting accuracy. Recognizing objects’ color, size, shape, and/or structural properties, these sorters remove foreign material (FM) and product defects to improve product quality, while virtually eliminating false rejects to increase yields.

Featuring a 2100-mm wide inspection zone, Veryx B210 offers a production capacity in excess of 50,000 lb of product per hour, depending on the application. With an inspection area more than 10 percent wider than other sorters with a similar footprint, the sorter optimally singulates product on the belt to improve sorting accuracy and enables processors to increase their throughputs by up to 15 percent, while conserving floor space.

“In many food processing plants, there is a trend toward new, higher capacity production lines, as well as efforts to maximize throughput on existing line installations,” said Marco Azzaretti, advanced inspection systems product manager at Key. “Our Veryx B210 supports both of these scenarios. In some layouts, the B210 is capable of replacing two smaller capacity sorters to make the line flow more efficient.”
