Separators in coffee machine processing
A metal separator
supplied by S+S Separation and Sorting Technology GmbH has been used by a
manufacturer of coffee roasting machines and plants, the company
von Gimborn Maschinenfabrik GmbH uses the separator in the raw coffee
line of its demonstrations and test facility as part of quality
The RAPID 4000-FS metal separator is integrated in free-fall conveyor
pipes to inspect dry bulk materials. It can detect all magnetic and
non-magnetic metal contaminants (steel, stainless steel, aluminium),
which, once detected are removed by the separation unit. Separation is
performed without any interruption in the material flow.
The separator features a low overall height and can thus be easily
integrated into existing pipeline systems. The detection and separation
units are designed as two separate components; the free-fall height is
therefore individually adapted to local conditions. The reject outlet
can be rotated to suit the position of the collecting container and
standard Jacob pipe connections allow installation with reduced effort.
For improved product effect compensation, the metal detector features
both auto-learn and manual adjustment.
