Hytrol’s ProSort 400 Elite family of sorters is specifically designed to handle high-speed applications. The ProSort 421 is designed to sort products at a 22-degree angle where high speeds are required. With the ProSort 421, speeds of 700 FPM are possible. The ProSort 431 is designed to sort products at a 30-degree angle where close divert centers are required. With this model, speeds of 350 FPM are possible. The ProSort 421 & 431 series is offered as single-sided, diverting from either side.
For systems requiring dual-sided sorting, Hytrol offers the ProSort 422 & 432. These models use a dual-sided wraparound shoe, which is similar to the single-sided shoe, but offers the ability to sort in either direction. The shoe fits the same slat and is designed to be jam-resistant. This allows for increased carton rate with higher throughput. The center switch used with the dual sided option is designed to require zero electric or pneumatic service for operation.
