Duravant’s newly formed Food Sorting and Handling Solutions group includes operating companies Key Technology, Multiscan Technologies, PPM Technologies, and WECO. The group provides a range of optical sorters, specialized conveyors, and advanced turnkey processing line solutions.

Duravant’s Food Sorting and Handling Solutions group brings together complementary technologies and expertise from several of its brands to offer turnkey lines for a wider range of food applications, catering to processors and packers that are increasingly looking to phase out in-house production line engineering in favor of equipment suppliers that provide seamlessly integrated solutions with single-source responsibility. Duravant is continuing to evolve and add value to its customers’ operations through research and development, as well as by strategically acquiring industry leaders like PPM, which joined the Duravant family of brands in July.

Examples of technologies offered by Duravant’s Food Sorting and Handling Solutions group include Key Technology’s new COMPASS® food optical sorter and its reversible Zephyr™ horizontal-motion conveyor, WECO’s integrated Sortivator fresh-pack line for blueberries, Multiscan’s vision technology for sorting, and PPM Technologies’ Mini VF electromagnetic vibratory motion conveyor for product handling.
