Powered by next-generation inspection technology as well as a sort engine and ergonomic user interface, the Key Technology Compass optical sorter achieves accurate foreign material (FM) and product defect removal and simplifies system operation, sanitation, and maintenance. It sorts processed, frozen, and pre-processed vegetables and fruits, nuts, leafy greens, potato chips, confections, and other food products.

Thanks to its advanced sensors and lighting technology, as well as Key’s NEXT sort engine, the sorter identifies and separates plastic, glass, paper, and other organic and inorganic FM from the line, in addition to sorting specified product defects.

Designed for ease of use, the sorter has an intuitive user interface that mimics the navigation of smart device apps and enables an operator without any technical background to quickly become proficient in using the sorter. Operators can quickly create and edit Compass sort recipes to ensure consistent performance on every product run.

The sorter features Key Discovery, a data analytics and reporting software that turns it into an IIoT-connected device, delivering product quality and sort process information that gives food processors valuable insights into the operation of their line.

The Compass sorter is offered in a configurable range of system types and sizes to meet individual application and capacity requirements. It can be installed in-line at the start of a process to sort incoming product, after critical transformational processes on the line, or at the end of the food processing line to ensure final product quality and safety prior to packaging.
