Sesotec Rapid 8000

Metal separator for free-fall applications

  • Metal separator for the inspection of powdery, fibrous and chunky bulk materials
  • Detects magnetic and non-magnetic metal contaminations
  • Separation by way of swivel hopper
  • Dust-proof reject outlet design
  • 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 even with large nominal widths guarantees easy integration of the metal separator in existing pipe systems
  • Quick and minimum-effort installation due to standard Jacob connection system
  • Auto-learn function or manual product compensation (no fixed setting) for improved adaptation to the intrinsic conductivity of the product to be nspected
  • Increased interference immunity to electromagnetic pollution and vibration
  • Highest scanning sensitivity for all metals

The RAPID 8000 metal separator is used for the inspection of bulk materials in free-fall conveyor pipes starting from a nominal width of 200 mm. It detects all magnetic and nonmagnetic 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 reject outlet is of dust-proof design during normal operation.

The RAPID 8000 metal separator primarily is used in the food industry in applications with high hygienic demands.

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 selfmonitoring, 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 Unit” GENIUS+ brochure).

  • Incoming inspection (product purity and machine protection) of coarse spices with a high dust content, bulk materials with coarse to fine-grained contents, ingredients, raw materials, etc. prior to the processing machine (e.g. mill).
  • Quality inspection (product purity) of food powders, sugar, salt, chemical additives (e.g. ascorbic acid, surfactants), etc. directly before filling in bigbags and silos.
  • Chemical industry
  • Food industry
  • Animal feed industry
