Application Note: Transparent Bottle Detection in a Washdown Environment

Transparent Bottle Detection

This application involves regulating conveyor line pressure by monitoring clear bottles. 

When bottles on a conveyor touch and move together, the conveyor's force multiplies by the number of bottles, creating line pressure. The stored energy in the line pressure can cause product damage and loss, which means additional costs and delays. Regulating line pressure on beverage filling lines is critical. A sensor that can identify transparent or shiny objects and transmit a signal to the control when they amass is required. So that more containers can be added upstream till the bottles flow again.

The Q4X laser clear object detection sensor from Banner Engineering can detect clear objects without using a reflector. For reliable detection of challenging targets such as bottles and cans, it decides on the presence of a target based on both distance and intensity. By removing a reflector from a washdown area, you are also releasing a potential point of failure. The sensor has built-in on/off delays that ignore passing bottles while sending a signal if a bottle is still present or accumulation occurs. 

The Q4X COD laser sensor can detect a broader range of transparent objects and is built with sealed IP69K-rated stainless steel housing, making it an ideal choice for the beverage industry.

Banner is the leading manufacturer of photoelectric devices, machine safety devices, vision sensors, and wireless I/O systems.

The Tideflex TF-1 Check Valve

The TF-1 is the most popular Tideflex Check Valve configuration for outfalls. The TF-1 has a flat bottom and a flared top designed for in-structure and end-of-pipe installations. As a result, the valve can be installed at a lower overall elevation than in other configurations, requiring less bottom clearance.

The TF-1 is ideal for maintenance hole applications such as junction boxes, diversion chambers, and interceptors where the pipe invert is close to the vault floor. The invert pipe is as close to the floor as possible in these vaults to maximize the available gravity head. The TF-1 is designed to install within such structures and can be easily retrofitted to existing systems, frequently replacing failed flapgates.

Improve Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Production with Siemens LR560 Level Transmitter

Siemens LR560 Level Transmitter

PET is an abbreviation for polyethylene terephthalate, which is the chemical term for polyester. 

PET is a transparent, robust, and lightweight plastic widely used in packaging foods and beverages, particularly convenience-sized soft drinks, juices, and water. PET is used to make almost all single-serving and 2-liter bottles of carbonated soft drinks and water sold in the United States. 

PET containers are produced in two stages, employing injection molding and blow molding machinery. 


Storage tank monitoring of crystalline PET plastic pellets used to make plastic soft drink bottles is essential. The crystalline pellets have a density ranging from 30 pounds per cubic foot to 56 pounds per cubic foot, and the storage tanks can be up to 60 feet tall. 

Level measurement is crucial for inventory control and sustaining material availability during production times. If the inventory is running low, production needs to know whether or not tanks will need to swap. 

Some plants measure levels with a plumb-bob, and some use ultrasonic level transmitters. The plumb bob cord becomes a mechanical inconvenience, and due to excessive dust levels, the ultrasonic level devices experience frequent echo loss. 


The Siemens LR560 transmitter provides a continuous, consistent, and low-maintenance level measuring solution. The SITRANS LR560 unit's plug-and-play capability is appropriate for most solids level monitoring applications, even those requiring severe dust and high temperatures. Its one-of-a-kind design allows for safe and simple programming with the intrinsically safe handheld programmer without the need to open the instrument's lid. 


Savings in time 

  • Significantly reduced maintenance. Because the SITRANS LR560 radar transmitter is non-contact, there is no risk of product contamination or extended delays when plumb-bob cables become entangled or break. 

Process dependability has increased. 

  • Continuous level measurement provides a precise temporal indicator of how much is in the silo. When a plumb-bob wire becomes trapped at a certain distance, the accurate level data is lost. There is no level history before the last on-demand request from the instrument after the line is attached. 

Simpler to use 

  • The SITRANS LR560 transmitter employs a quick start wizard and requires no more calibration or maintenance. 


The local user interface facilitates setting and setup. Customers can save money by shifting the indicating component from unit to unit as needed because they only use the removable, local display during setup. The narrow, 4-degree beam angle allows for consistent depth penetration into the silo while ignoring possible silo wall interference. 

The SITRANS LR560 2-wire, 78 GHz FMCW radar level transmitter monitors solids in silos over a 100-meter (328-foot) range. Its plug-and-play performance is suited for most solids applications, including those with high temperatures up to +392oF and severe dust. Its one-of-a-kind design allows for safe and straightforward programming with the intrinsically safe handheld programmer without the need to open the instrument's lid. 

The SITRANS LR560 transmitter offers an optional graphical local display interface (LDI) that facilitates setup and operation by providing diagnostic support via an intuitive Quick Start Wizard and echo profile display. The QuickStart wizard makes it simple to get started, with only a few parameters needed for basic functioning. The SITRANS LR560 equipment monitors almost any solids material level up to 328 feet.

Process Technology, Inc. Combines Partner Technology and Delivers Innovative Industrial Effluent Wastewater Measurement Solution

Industrial Effluent Wastewater Measurement Solution

Due to the regulatory nature, readings are taken multiple times a day manually, and constant alarms require a technician's attention. Questionable flow data and an ultrasonic level sensor that would not read below 3 GPM did not collect accurate or consistent flow data over the flume. pH buffers and calibrations were up to date, but due to the device's questionable age and occasional data dropout, it did not meet the regulatory requirements.

This application aims to regulate pH and flow and improve wastewater monitoring data collection's accuracy and efficiency, stay in compliance and ensure instrument reliability with a cost-efficient solution, reducing downtime.

Siemens, Mettler-Toledo, Red Lion

The Mettler Toledo M300 with an iSense 3250i pH probe provides the most reliable and accurate pH capabilities in the industry, along with added digital monitoring. Calibrations are done on the bench in a controlled environment. The sensor will tell the transmitter the approximate life of the sensor, reducing system downtime.

The Siemens LU 240 for ultrasonic level (over existing flume) calculates flow and is a very cost-effective way to gather accurate levels. A single device with a local display and a 4-20mA output covers all communication bases and accuracy requirements.

A Red Lion 10” Graphite HMI consolidates data gathering and calculates flow using the existing cellular, returning data to the control room. Data is logged in the HMI via SD Card, so if there is an interruption in the system control room, no data is lost.

Process Technology, Inc. Delivers Automated Perlite Silo Level Measurement Solution

Automated Perlite Silo Level Measurement Solution


To increase measurement accuracy and reduce the risk of injury by eliminating the twice daily need to climb to the top of 60’ silos to measure the level of perlite. 

Safely and accurately measuring the level of raw and processed perlite, a very dusty low dielectric mineral, is a daily requirement for our customer. With the assistance of our engineering team, the technology from (2) leading instrument and technology manufacturers were combined for a solution that can be applied at several perlite plants to address silo level monitoring challenges.


Old and non-functioning cable fed level devices require an operator to take manual measurements twice a day from the top of (4) 60’ silos. This is a potentially dangerous measurement as the weather conditions could present a slip and fall, as well as the hazard and exposure to harsh elements. 

The measurement data needs to be logged twice a day for inventory purposes and a local display for filling or drawing material is necessary for the drivers and operators.


SITRANS LR560 Radar Level
Siemens SITRANS LR560 Radar Level Transmitter is a “Rockstar” in dusty tough solids level applications. The LR560 2-wire, 78 GHz FMCW radar level transmitter continuously monitors solids in the silos to a range of 100 m (328 ft).
