SORTATION CONVEYORS

Sortation conveyors are a vital component in material handling. These conveyor systems rapidly move products to specific desitinations within a facility. Hytrol provides a line of sortation conveyors that can be customized to meet your material handling needs.

ProSort 1000 Series

Sliding Shoe Sorter

Sliding shoe sorters provide high-speed sortation where product diverting needs to be positive and gentle. They are found in distribution centers and other facilities for their overall versality and ability to gently sort various package sizes and weights at a high rate.
 
Hytrol offers two models of shoe sorter conveyors : the 1100 (small packages) and 1400 (large packages). They are available with 22 and 30 degree diverts and speeds ranging from 350-700 fpm. The sorters offer a wrap-around shoe designed for easy break away in case product jamming occurs to avoid damage to the equipment and/or the package. They also feature autotracking for the induction belt and aluminum extrusion on the bed channels for better alignment and easier installation.

ProSort MRT

Narrow Belt Sorter

Narrow belt sortation conveyors are a space-saving solution with close divert centers for sortation of small to medium sized packages. The conveyors use multiple narrow belts for transport and pop-up rollers for 30 and 90 degree diversions.
 
The ProSort MRT 30 and 90 are Hytrol’s narrow belt sorters and are cost-effective solutions for sortation. The MRT 30 maintains the product’s orientation and creates minimal gaps to produce higher throughput rates. The MRT 90 produces a change in product orientation with the right-angle diversion. It is a space saver for your facility because the 90 degree divert lanes can be placed next to each other if needed.

ProSort SC

Belted Pivot Wheel / Pop-up Wheel Sorters

Belted Pivot wheel sorters, or pop-up wheel sorters,  are belt powered conveyors with divert wheels at the infeed and the exit of the conveyor. They are able to sort 90 packages a minute with belt speeds up to 300 fpm. The conveyors also maintain product orientation during sortation.
 
Hytrol’s ProSort SC is a belted pivot wheel sortation conveyor that allows several diverts to be powered by one drive with speeds up to 300 fpm. The SC is a great solution for totes or boxes, and the takeaways can be slave driven to save on cost. Widths of 18″, 24″, 30″, and 36″ are available with left, right, or dual sided diverts of
30 degrees.

ProSort SS

Sweep Sorter

Sweeps sorters are ideal for hard to sort packages and can integrate with various conveyor systems. They provide right-angle sortation and when chutes are not used, they change the package’s orientation.
 
The ProSort SS is Hytrol’s sweep sorter and a sortation solution for standard poly bags, blister packs, small packages, and other hard to convey packages weighing less than 8 pounds. The dual-tiered configuration conserves spaces and is available with single- or dual-sided chutes. The sorter is designed to interface with Hytrol’s Connex™plastic chain belt line, but can be incorporated with other models.
