Key Technology expands its VERYX family of digital sorters with the addition of the new VERYX C70, a small chute-fed sorter, ideal for low- to mid-capacity production lines.

VERYX sorters maximize the accuracy of defect and foreign material (FM) removal and/or product grading based on objects’ color, size, shape and/or structural properties. This extreme precision enables food processors to achieve their product quality specifications while virtually eliminating false rejects to increase yields.

The VERYX C70 is designed to sort line capacities ranging from less than one metric ton (2,220 lbs.) up to five metric tons (11,000 lbs.) of product per hour. Its 700-mm wide inspection zone is more than 10% wider than other sorters in its size category. This wider inspection zone enables VERYX to maintain a higher throughput within a similar footprint and better single out products, to improve sorting accuracy.
Like the high capacity VERYX C140 sorter, VERYX C70 sorts free-flowing foods such as vegetables and others. These two chute-fed sorters complement Key’s belt-fed VERYX sorters, which can be configured for wet and frozen potato strips and specialty potato products, fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables, leafy greens, potato chips and other snack foods, confections and more.
Chute-fed VERYX sorters feature Key’s patented Chycane chute, a unique concave-shaped slide that stabilizes product as it enters the inspection and ejection zones to produce a consistent trajectory that improves sorting accuracy. The systems include specialized infeed and collection shakers designed specifically for each application to maximize sorting performance. Extremely gentle handling minimizes product breakage and degradation, which is especially important for fragile, high-value products.
