Hytrol's Resources
ProSort MRT 90˚ and 30˚
The ProSort MRT family of sorters is specifically designed to handle medium sized product and is capable of high throughput rates. The ProSort MRT 90˚ makes use of multiple narrow belts to transport items. It is equipped with right-angle rollers that rise between the belts to divert items off the unit and is designed for dual-sided diverting. With the ProSort MRT 30˚, wheels rise between the belts to transfer items at 30 degree angles for increased rates. The sorters are designed with individual pneumatic take-ups for consistent belt tensioning and are equipped with the HyPower distributed cabling system. Applications include but a re not limited to quality control stations, manual palletizing, automated and robotic palletizers, and value-added workstations.

E24™ 24-Volt Conveying System
Hytrol's E24™ sets the standard by delivering a powerful, long-lasting, low-voltage means for product transportation.
The 24-volt motor driven roller (MDR) conveyor systems are being widely used due to their simplicity and flexibility. Since the drive train is distributed along the conveyor length, a single piece of equipment can perform multiple functions. This includes different speeds, multiple directions and starting/stopping individual sections. Because E24™ is a Hytrol innovation, it also works great with EZLogic® zero-pressure accumulation systems. Hytrol’s E24™ has been designed from the ground up to provide the best 24-volt conveyor drive technology in existence.
