Function of The Metal Detector

The RAPID 5000 metal detector is used for the inspection of bulk materials in free-fall conveyor pipes. It detects all magnetic and non-magnetic metal contaminations (steel, stainless steel, aluminum, …) – even if such contaminations are embedded in the product. Metal contaminations are rejected by means of the separation unit (“Quick Flap”).

The RAPID 5000 metal detector primarily is used in industries with very high hygienic demands.

• Food industry

Advantages of The Metal Detector:

• Versatile metal detection: the metal detector can identify both magnetic and non-magnetic metal contaminations in various materials.

• Efficient separation: metal detector utilizes a stainless-steel reject flap for effective removal of detected contaminants from bulk materials.

• Hygienic design: the metal detector is designed without corners and edges in the separation unit, ensuring cleanliness and suitability for sensitive environments like food production. The use of stainless steel (1.4301 or aisi 304) for the separation unit and product-contacting metal parts supports hygienic standards.

• Compliance with standards: the metal detector complies with ifs and haccp, meeting rigorous quality and safety standards in the food industry.

• Adaptable integration: with a low mounting height, metal detector easily integrates into existing pipe systems. Separate detection and separation units allow flexibility in adjusting free-fall height and positioning the reject outlet to match the collecting container.

• Ease of installation: the metal detector features quick and straightforward installation with the standard jacob connection system.

• Auto-learn function: the metal detector includes an auto-learn function with product compensation, adapting to the intrinsic conductivity of the specific product being inspected for accurate metal detection without manual adjustments.

• Interference immunity: the metal detector has increased interference immunity to electromagnetic pollution and vibration, ensuring reliable operation in challenging industrial environments.

• High sensitivity: the metal detector offers the highest scanning sensitivity for all metals, ensuring the detection of even small metal contaminants for comprehensive quality control.
