RAPID 6000


Metal separator for free-fall applications 

The RAPID 6000 metal separator 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, aluminium, …) – even if such contaminations are embedded in the product. Metal contaminations are rejected by means of a swivel hopper. The RAPID 6000 metal separator primarily is used in industries with high hygienic demands. The chemical industry, pharmaceutical industry and food industry are the typical fields of application.

  • Metal separator for the inspection of coarsegrained, flaky, light, fibrous, crumbly, and moist bulk materials
  • Detects magnetic and non-magnetic metal con- taminations
  • Separation by way of swivel hopper
  • Hygienic design for easy cleaning
  • Complies with IFS and HACCP
  • Separation unit and product-contacting metal parts completely made of stainless steel 1.4301 (AISI 304)
  • Low mounting height guarantees easy integration of the metal separator in existing pipe systems
  • Separation unit with large cleaning opening
  • Auto-learn function with product compensation for optimal adaptation to the intrinsic conductivity of the product to be inspected
  • Increased interference immunity to electromagnetic pollution and vibration
  • Highest scanning sensitivity for all metals
