Siemens Flow Instruments
– A world of possibilities
Flowmeters from
Siemens are designed
for individual customer
demands, which means
they are fully compatible
for integration in future
system extensions.
Siemens Flow Instruments is the
competence center for flowmeters
within Siemens Automation and Drives.
We develop, manufacture and market
all Siemens‘ flowmeters worldwide –
under the brand SITRANS F. Our range
extends from electronic meters based on
electromagnetic, coriolis and ultrasonic
technologies to more classical mechanical
flowmeters. We offer a wide range of
electronic flowmeters, all fulfilling the
highest demands in terms of accuracy
and reliability in industries such as water
and wastewater, chemicals, food and
beverage, pharmaceutical, mining, pulp
and paper, power and utilities.

A liner for every purpose
Flowmeter liners
The liners from Siemens Flow Instruments
are designed for flowmeters covering the
following applications:
• Drinking Water
• Wastewater
• Abrasives Liquids
• Chemicals
• Food & Beverage / Pharmaceutical
• Pulp & Paper
The flowmeters differ in terms of materials,
size, corrosion resistance, pressure and
temperature performance.
The right combination depends on the specific
application area. Some of the liners are especially suitable for drinking water – such as
EPDM – whereas others are designed for use in
food and beverage industries – such as PFA or
Ceramic.
Several of the liners have obtained international approvals for specific purposes. For
instance in drinking water applications, different national authorities dictate a variety of
strict limitations and demands.
In any situation, you can find a Siemens flowmeter to suit your requirements exactly.
Use this Selection Guide to see the exact specifications for the various liner types, and get a
quick overview of the best liners to use within
different application areas.

Soft Rubber is a versatile synthetic rubber, originally developed
as an oil-resistant substitute for natural rubber. Soft Rubber
possesses a unique combination of properties, which has led to
its use in thousands of applications in various water application
environments.
Wear Resistance
Performance

Recently, due to new drinking water requirements and the risk
of swelling in water, other rubber materials such as EPDM and
Ebonite have replaced Soft Rubber in many water applications.
Soft Rubber facts and features
• Performs well in contact with oils, many chemicals and some
solvents
• Well-suited to wastewater applications where oil is present
• Good abrasion resistance properties
• Due to compression set the liner tolerates a maximum temperature of +70ºC (+158ºF).

Siemens Flow Instruments – Index Pricing
The liners from Siemens Flow Instruments vary in terms of material
and technical specifications – and thus differ with regard to benefits,
features, usability and price. In the charts below you can see the
price of each liner type stated as an index compared to other liner
types. For MAG 1100 with flowmeter size DN 2 to DN 15 the index
liner is ceramic. And for MAG 3100 with flowmeter size DN 25 to DN

Stainless Steel
The Stainless Steel AISI 316 electrode from Siemens
Flow Instruments is a general purpose electrode for
non-aggressive liquids, such as drinking water, sewage
and district heating.
About Stainless Steel (AISI 316)
AISI 316 is an iron-carbon alloy with chromium, nickel and
molybdenum being the main alloying elements.
Chromium will form a protective oxide layer when exposed
to oxygen and thus the corrosion resistance of Stainless
Steel increases compared to plain carbon steel. The general
corrosion resistance of AISI 316 is therefore depending
on the resistance of the protective oxide layer.

Hastelloy ®
Hastelloy ®
The Hastelloy® electrode from Siemens Flow
Instruments is the preferred choice for applications
in water and wastewater, chemical, food and
beverage, and pharmaceutical industries.
About Hastelloy®
Application
Hastelloy® is a family of nickel alloys with a very wide application area. The Hastelloy® electrode is characterized by having
a high resistance towards localized corrosion which is a
great advantage in chloride-containing environments at high
temperatures. Furthermore, Hastelloy® has a high level of
all-round corrosion resistance which can be attributed to the
content of chromium and molybdenum. Chromium increases
the resistance to oxidizing conditions and molybdenum
increases the resistance to reducing environments.
Siemens Flow Instruments uses the grades, C22 and C276 as
electrode material in its electromagnetic flowmeters.

Titanium
Titanium
The Titanium electrode from Siemens Flow Instruments
is a good choice for applications in the process and
chemical industry requiring a high corrosion resistance.
About Titanium
Application
Availability
The Titanium electrode has an excellent corrosion resistance
in many aggressive environments, particularly oxidizing and
chloride-containing media. The only corrosion limitation of
titanium is applications in reducing acids such as sulphuric
and hydrochloric acids. The corrosion resistance of Titanium
relies on the formation of a passive surface film composed
of Titanium oxide (mainly TiOx2). This passive film is very
stable and has a self-healing effect as long as the surrounding
environment contains oxygen or other oxidizing agents.

Tantalum
Tantalum
The Tantalum electrode from Siemens Flow Instruments
is the perfect choice for aggressive media and almost
immune to all kinds of chemical attack. This makes it a
superior choice for applications in the chemical industry.
About Tantalum
Application
Tantalum is very corrosion-resistant and has a resistance level
similar to glass. Once the metal is exposed to air, a thin layer
of highly resistant Tantalum oxide is formed, which makes it
resistant to almost all kinds of chemicals. Corrosion can only
take place in fluor-containing media and unwanted scale
formation can occur in alkalis. It is a rather soft metal and
thus not very abrasive-resistant.

Platinum
Platinum
Platinum is the ultimate electrode material for difficult
applications with high temperature and corrosive
media. Platinum is chosen when tantalum is not
sufficiently corrosion-resistant.
About Platinum
Application
Platinum has a very noble and immune character which makes
it extremely corrosion-resistant. Corrosive attack of platinum
at room temperature will mainly take place in mixtures of
strong oxidizing acids. Furthermore, platinum has excellent
high-temperature characteristics with stable electrical
properties.
Different grades of platinum are available as electrode
material at Siemens Flow Instruments.

Chemical Resistance Chart
Introduction
Corrosion and degradation depend on many parameters:
•Temperature
•Pressure
•Concentration
•Impurities
•pH-value
• Materials and surfaces characteristics
• Joinings (e.g weldings, soldering)
• Mechanical stress of materials
Due to the many parameters influencing the process the corrosion table can
only be used as guidance and does not always apply to the actual process
conditions at the end-user. Thus the final responsibility of material selection
resides with the user who knows the specific process conditions.
The data presented in this guide is based on published data and field
experience.
Disclaimer
Siemens Flow Instruments can provide assistance with the selection of sensor
parts in contact with the media. However, the full responsibility for the
selection rests with the customer and Siemens Flow Instruments can take
no responsibility for any failure due to material incompatibility.
How to use this guide
The names of the chemicals are listed in alphabetic order.
The table is valid for pure chemicals at 20°C where nothing else is stated.
