Model ProSort SC series of sorters consist of a belt conveyor
fitted with divert modules that are powered from the belt.
The divert modules contain high friction wheels that pivot
in order to direct cartons from the main belt conveyor onto
take-away lines. The ProSort SC1 diverter can direct products
to take-away lines located either on the right or left side
of the conveyor while the ProSort SC2 diverter can direct
products to both the right and left sides of the conveyor.
Take-away lines may be either gravity skatewheel or powered
rollers. Spurs may be slave driven from the diverter when
the application requires powered take-away rollers but where
the additional drives on the spurs would not be cost effective.

Hytrol’s ProSort SC is ideal for sortation applications
requiring up to 100 cartons per minute to be sorted to shipping
lanes for distribution of product. The ProSort SC utilizes
slave driven diverters that are directly powered from the
main belt without the use of chains. This, along with all
precision bearings in the rollers, provides quiet running
and low maintenance operation in applications where up-time
is critical to output.
ProSort SC has been utilized for both full case and split
case sortation applications. Products that may be handled
on the ProSort SC range from standard household items to automotive
components to almost any product in a cardboard box or tote.
Hytrol is always willing to test your specific product on
the ProSort SC. In applications where powered spurs are critical
for accurately diverting product, the spurs may be slave driven
from the diverter. This eliminates costly drives,
therefore providing a more cost effective solution for many
applications. Drives also may be synchronized together in
order to provide one induction area on solutions requiring
multiple drives due to long overall lengths.
Hytrol also offers a ProLogix control solution specifically
design for controlling and tracking the performance of the
