Product description
The RAPID 5000 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 the separation
unit ("Quick Flap").
The RAPID 5000 metal separator primarily is used in industries
with very high hygienic demands. 
• 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
• Separate detection and separation units:
– The free-fall height can be adapted on site
– The position of the reject outlet can be swivelled to
match the position of the collecting container
• Quick and minimum-effort installation due to standard
Jacob connection system
• 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
