Siemens Verificator for Magflo

Verifying Flowmeter Operation and Accuracy

Need to make sure your magmeters are functioning properly? It only takes 15 minutes to validate the performance of your Siemens Magflo electronic flowmeters — and you don't even have to stop flow to get the job done.

Siemens SITRANS FM Verificator checks the operating condition of your flowmeter, and makes sure that it's functioning within specification. The fully automated test checks the transmitter, the insulation, and the integrity of the electromagnets.

It can be used with MAG 1100, 1100F, 5100W 3100, and 3100P sensors plus MAG 5000 and MAG 6000 transmitters.

Stock Transmitters and Seals Reduce Downtime

A couple weeks ago on a Saturday, one of our process customers called with an emergency. Part of their operation includes monitoring pressure in a vessel that processes toxic materials for safe disposal, and their existing transmitter was failing. Without this process, their entire operation has to stop, and there's no work-around.

They needed a pressure transmitter with a chemical seal (to protect it from the harsh materials), and they needed it fast. Our team was able to assemble a Honeywell smart transmitter with a diaphragm seal, and get the assembly out the door for next-day delivery. The customer's downtime was minimal, and they were back in operation that Monday.

When you're in a rush, look to Lesman to deliver. We can provide next-day delivery on these Honeywell SmartLine smart transmitters:

  • In-line gauge pressure: 0.5 to 50 PSI, 5 to 500 PSI, and 30 to 3000 PSI
  • Differential pressure: 0.1" to 10" or 4" to 400" WC, 1 to 100 or 30 to 3000 PSI
  • Hydrostatic pressure for level applications: 4" to 400" WC
  • Temperature: Universal input, digital accuracy 0.1°C

Assembled and filled with your choice of welded, clamped, and sanitary diaphragm seals and the appropriate fill fluid for your application.
