Rapid Pro-Sense


High-performance metal separator for free-fall applications

  • Accurate inline detection and separation of magnetic and non-magnetic metal contaminations, even if such contaminations are enclosed in the product
  • Accurate and reliable metal detection for quality inspection in plastics and compound production
  • Protects against customer complaints
  • Protects processing machines and moulds against damage and choking, reduces production downtimes
  • Offers a rapid return on investment
Performance features
  • Highest scanning sensitivity for all metals due to innovative HRF technology (High Resolution Frequency)
  • Modular system design for optimal adaptation to customer- and material-specific requirements
  • Auto-learn function or manual product effect compensation for optimal compensation of the intrinsic conductivity of the material to be inspected
  • Cleaning and auto-clean systems available as an option
  • Low mounting height even with large nominal widths guarantees easy integration of the metal separator in existing pipe systems
  • Quick and easy installation due to Jacob standard connections
  • Increased interference immunity to electrosmog and vibration
  • Outstanding ease of operation with GENIUS+ Control Unit with LCD graphic display
  • Product-contacting metal components completely made of stainless steel 1.4301 (AISI 304)



The RAPID PRO-SENSE metal separator is used for the inspection of bulk materials in free-fall conveyor pipes. It detects and separates all magnetic and non-magnetic metal contaminations (especially also stainless steel, aluminium, non-ferrous metals, …) – even if such contaminations are enclosed in the product. The reject unit reliably separates metal contaminations from the conveyed material flow. The RAPID PRO-SENSE metal separator predominantly is used for the quality inspection of bulk materials in plastics and compound production.

The RAPID PRO-SENSE metal separator primarily is used for quality inspection (product purity) in the production and compounding of plastic granulate, where it typically is installed directly before the material is filled in bigbags, octabins, or silos. The metal separator also is used for quality inspection in the incoming goods department of plastic-processing plants (product purity, machine protection).
