Jan 30, 2013

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 flowmeters.

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 flowmeters (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.

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