Siemens Obtains Explosion-Proof Approvals for Sitrans Magnetic Flow Meters

Siemens has received explosion-proof approvals for its half-inch to 12-inch line of Sitrans magnetic flow meters. The company has added i 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 to the Sitrans line.

For line sizes larger than 12 inches, Siemens now offers 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) have been designed to measure the flow of almost any electrically conductive liquid, as well as sludges, pastes and slurries. Measurable mediums must have a certain minimum conductivity. The temperature, pressure, viscosity and density have little influence on the result.

Siemens Sitrans FM magnetic flow meters have been 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 and chemical and industrial markets where magnetic flow meters are used potentially explosive environments.
