Product description
The RAPID 4000-FS metal separator is used to inspect bulk goods under free-fall conditions. It detects all magnetic and non-magnetic metal contaminations (steel, stainless steel, aluminium) – even when enclosed in the product. Metal contaminations are rejected through the “Quick Flap” reject unit. The RAPID 4000-FS is used mainly in industries with low hygiene applications. 
Advantages
• Highest scanning sensitivity to all metals
• Separation unit and product-contacting metal parts
completely made of stainless steel 1.4301 (AISI 304)
• Low installation height; the metal separator can be
easily fitted into existing pipeline systems
• 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
• Standard Jacobs adaptors for inlet and outlet ensure
quick, hassle-free installation
• Learn automatic or manual product compensation
allow flexible adaption to product conductivity
• Pre-installed parameters for simplified operation
• Enhanced signal-to-noise-ratio minimises electromagnetic
pollution and vibrations
