Sesotec Rapid 6000

Metal separator for free-fall applications

  • Metal separator for the inspection of coarsegrained, flaky, light, fibrous, crumbly, and moist bulk materials
  • Detects magnetic and non-magnetic metal contaminations
  • 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

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.

Two control units (GENIUS+ and SENSITY) with graded performance features are available. Common features:

  • Highest sensitivity for all metals (2-channel technology)
  • Digital signal processing and quartz-stable search frequency
  • State-of-the-art microprocessor technology with self-monitoring, auto-balancing, and temperature compensation
  • Product compensation with auto-learn function
  • Multi-product memory
  • Password protection / access protection
  • Special EMC combifilter for suppressing external interference

(For further information please refer to the “Control Units” GENIUS+ and SENSITY brochure).

  • Incoming inspection (product purity and machine protection) of spices, ingredients, raw materials, etc. prior to the processing machine (e.g. mill).
  • Quality inspection (product purity) of herbs, tea, fibres, etc. directly before filling in bigbags and cartons.
  • Quality inspection of breakfast cereals, noodles, chips, directly before a bag-forming, filling, and sealing machine.
  • Chemical industry
  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Food industry
