RAPID 4000


Metal separator for free-fall applications 

  • Detects and separates magnetic and non-magnetic metal contamination, even when enclosed in product
  • Reduces expensive machinery failure and minimises production downtime
  • Ensures product quality
  • Prevents customer complaints
  • Break even within a very short period of time
  • Separated detection and separation units: – Free-fall height can be individually adjusted on site – Position of waste reject unit can be turned to match position of collecting tray
  • Learn automatic or manual product compensation (not pre-adjusted) to improve adaption to product and conveyor belt conductivity
  • Pre-installed parameters simplify operation
  • High scanning sensitivity to all metals
  • Minimal waste through „Quick-Flap“ rejection system
  • Low installation height, the metal separator can be easily fitted into existing pipeline systems
  • Standard adaptor system Jacob-Rohrbau (= Jacob pipe system) enables quick, hassle-free installation
  • Increased signal-to-noise-ratio towards electromagnetic pollution and vibrations
