Gravity Free-Fall Style Metal Separators – Recycling and Plastics

Separate Metal in Gravity Free-Fall Applications

Gravity Free-Fall Style Metal Separators automatically detect all ferrous and non-ferrous metals without process interruptions by separating contaminated materials from product flow. For HACCP safety, this detector is an efficient Critical Control Point (CCP) when detecting metal in any free-falling product. The products below can be used in the Recycling and Plastics Industries.


quickTRON™ 03 R

QT_03RLow-cost triple-coil separator offers superior sensitivity, simplicity, and reliability. Specifically designed for use in plastics and recycling.

Our Quicktron 03 R are designed for demanding plastics applications. They feature:

  • Economical, compact design
  • Detects and rejects small fine materials
  • Accurate even with abrasive products
  • Recommended wherever removal of fines is critical
  • Housing Controls are contained

*For the Recycling and Plastics Industries

Quicktron 03 R units provide consistent performance in demanding applications. High-speed stainless steel reject mechanics allow for compact design. This advanced transmitter/receiver detection system comes in a money-saving package. Units are fully self-monitoring. Integral brackets simplify mounting.

quickTRON™ 05 (Flap or Cowbell Style Diverters)

Quicktron05A_foodUses CR coil for reliable detection and is cost effective for the examination of bulk material in gravity free-fall applications.

  • Flap option is recommended for powders, fine granular or dry products.
  • Cowbell option is recommended for abrasive, sticky or non-powdered products.
  • Simple 05 controls. Remote mounted controls available.
  • Stainless steel, washdown, or painted versions available.
  • Utility-grade and food-grade models are available.
  • ATEX (Explosion proof rating) hazardous environment rating available for Flap style unit.

 *For the Food, Grain & Milling, Powder & Bulk, Plastics and Recycling Industries.



HS 9050/9100

HS9100Entry-level, economical HS Separators pneumatically reject isolated metal debris from powders, granules, and other bulk materials. The HS Metal Detector is designed for all Gravity-Fed applications in Plastics and Recycling. It features:

  • Economical, compact, and versatile
  • Fully self-monitoring
  • Adjustable sensitivity and rejection
  • Low-maintenance operation

*For the Recycling and Plastics Industries

HS Detectors have a single electronics board enclosed in a dust-tight steel housing and feature single-coil detection. Air-powered stainless steel flap offers rapid rejection cycling for cleaner results. HS Detectors monitor their sensors, mechanical function, voltage, and air pressure.



Machine Mounted All-Metal Separators (MMS)

mmsDesigned to be a last chance metal separator to be mounted on an injection molding machine or extruder. Provides efficient rejection of both ferrous and nonferrous metal contaminants.

  • Designed especially for choke-feed applications
  • Can be bolted directly to the in-feed of processing equipment and support the weight of hoppers and bins.
  • Fast pneumatic rejection mechanism aided by precise timing results in accurate cycling and conservation of good material. Slide gate rejection design eliminates contamination “leaks”.
  • Hi-Temp version available for use where the product is at a higher than normal temperature. Handles temperatures up to 350°.

*For the Plastics Industry
