FineTek’s Guided Wave Radar helps optimize working processes and reduce maintenance procedures. A case study shows how the transmitter enhances a spaghetti sauce manufacturer’s CIP process.  

The Guided Wave Radar level transmitter from FineTek Co., Ltd uses advanced echo wave processing technology with a wide range of product applications. It can measure the low dielectric constant of solid level, liquid level and two different liquid medium levels and their interfaces.

Guided wave radar devices have no moving parts and require minimum maintenance. The product models include coaxial, tube/rod, steel wire cable type for the customer's choice, suitable for high temperature and high pressure medium liquid level measurement.

FineTek Guided Wave Radar

Dual liquid level interface measurement

High frequency microwave pulses travel along the steel wire cable or tube/rod. When they reach the medium surface, part of the microwave pulses are reflected. The other part penetrates through the upper layer of medium and generates the second reflection at the interface between upper and lower layers of the medium. Two pulse operating time periods are calculated and outputted by the electronic instrument of this meter as the dual liquid level heights.

Spaghetti sauce manufacturer achieves reliable various level control in CIP process with FineTek Guided Wave Radar


Making spaghetti sauce involves different ingredients and liquids such as tomato slices, mixed herbs, and lemon acid. The tank in which the sauce is cooked daily are cleaned afterward using high temperature. The primary level measurement on the tank were capacitance level transmitter which can only measure the actual level of one main medium.


FineTek JTR Guided Wave Radar installed at spaghetti sauce making facility


As a result, the onsite systems engineer decided to explore the possible use of alternative technologies to improve the reliability of different medium level measuring in high working temperature level instrumentation. With support from FineTek experts, they installed FineTek JTR Guided Wave Radar sanitary connection which enable to stand CIP process.


The following are the outcome after installing the FineTek JTR Guided Wave Radar

•             Reduced maintenance with no calibration required

•             Increased accuracy with more rapid level readings

•             Enable to measuring different liquid used in CIP tank
