Veryx digital sorter for pet food

Tuesday, 02 November, 2021 | Supplied by: Heat and Control Pty Ltd

Key Technology’s VERYX digital sorter system is designed to remove foreign materials and defective products from pet food. It can sort through a large amount of a variety of different pet foods and comes in a range of widths for different sorting capacities.

The system can be integrated with other machinery from its product line to boost its functionality but the sorter can also be used with third-party machines.

It can sort a range of foods and can be adapted to be used at different points on the production line. When installed at the end of the line, food such as kibble, chews and treats can be checked to help ensure a high quality. When used earlier in the line, such as near raw receiving, it can inspect ingredients like frozen proteins and other ingredients for wet food. The sorter has been designed to detect and remove a variety of foreign matter such as plastic, glass and paper and does so by analysing the individual objects passing through it.

The sorting system has cameras, laser scanners, lighting and an ejection system, all of which can be used to effectively sort food to ensure its quality. In-air inspection can be performed, allowing for all sides of a food product to be inspected without blind spots. The high resolution of the cameras results in smaller pieces of foreign matter and defective products being detected.

Finally, the included software lets the system record, analyse and share data. This means that patterns and trends will be revealed in order to improve efficiency and sorting methods.
