Fruit processingKey Technology’s fruit processing equipment helps to ensure that your product is clean, uniform and marketable. Utilizing cutting-edge, industry-leading technologies, our machines will increase your plant’s productivity while minimizing product damage.
Our VERYX® digital sorting platforms are well-suited to fruit processing, and use advanced machine intelligence, Multi-sensor Pixel Fusion™ and predictive system diagnostics to define a new standard for digital sorting. Key Technology’s Belt-Fed VERYX® is the first sorter to deliver total, sustained product inspection throughout the production cycle. Our VERYX® digital sorting platform is also available in a Chute-Fed configuration, using the same Pixel Fusion™ technology for the most precise ejection system on the market.
Fruit processing sometimes requires the separation of the product flow into multiple streams. Our range of distribution conveyors can gate and divert produce efficiently while maintaining exceptional levels of surface hygiene that resist bacterial growth. Key Technology’s distribution conveyors for fruit processing are available in four different ranges: Horizon™, Impulse®, Iso-Flo® and Marathon.
Our Tegra® In-Air Digital Sorter has the ability to thoroughly inspect a product from all sides, in-air. Gaining a superior view of each surface, you can utilize the Tegra® In-Air Digital Sorter to accurately identify and separate by color, texture or shape.
