Siemens Obtains Explosion-Proof Approvals for Sitrans Magnetic Flow Meters

ATLANTA – Siemens has introduced the addition of FM Class 1 Division 1, Groups A, B, C and D, and FM Class 1, Zone 1 AEx d (ia) ia/IIC/T3-T6 approvals for the company’s half-inch to 12-inch line of Sitrans magnetic flow meters.

For line sizes larger than 12 inches, Siemens is now offering sensors and transmitters that carry the FM Class 1, Zone 1 AEx d e (ia) ia/IIC/T3-T6 approval.

The approvals are available for Siemens Mag 3100 Series # 7ME6310, Mag 3100 HT Series #7ME6320 and Mag 3100 P Series # 7ME6330 flow sensors.

Siemens Sitrans FM magnetic flow meters (magmeters) are designed to measure the flow of almost any electrically conductive liquid, as well as sludges, pastes and slurries.  A prerequisite is that the medium must have a certain minimum conductivity.  The temperature, pressure, viscosity and density have little influence on the result.
Siemens Sitrans FM magnetic flow meters are designed for flexibility at the operational level, easy commissioning, simple operation, maintenance and service, expandability and in-depth diagnostics.

The new approvals are relevant to customers in the water/wastewater, chemical and industrial markets, where magnetic flow meters are used potentially explosive environments.
