An out-of-the-box proof testing solution, ProofCheck, is available to provide all the elements of proper SIS testing in a single solution, including field devices, wiring, signal conditioners, safety logic, basic process control system (BPCS) logic, final control element response, and manually entered data. It automates safety validation and proof test procedures.
In a Safety Solutions article, Improve plant safety with location monitoring technology, Emerson’s Bala Chinnappan shares another use case, tracking the path of individuals that have tested positive for infectious diseases, such as COVID.
When is it possible to use control valves like final elements for SIS [safety instrumented system] application? I am looking for other useful documents and technical requirements when it is possible to use only control valves as the final element instead of on/off valves and not in combination with it in the SIF [safety instrumented function] application.
As a complimentary technique to manual inspection methods, wireless corrosion monitoring can greatly enhance visibility into plant and asset health while also keeping personnel out of hazardous areas. In order to drive a plant to its maximum capability, operators must continuously monitor its corrosion risk in real time.
In a Process Industry Informer article, Redundant Solenoid Valve Architecture Improves Safety and Reliability, Emerson’s Mike Howells describes the importance of these valves for safety and architectures to exercise and test these valves for ongoing reliable performance.
In a Hydrocarbon Engineering article, Improving safety shutdown valve reliability, Emerson’s Stanley Amirthasamy and Lura Parrent share ways to improve the reliability of final elements when they are safety valves. They open noting how safety valves are used to bring a process to a safe state.
Enabled by WirelessHART® technology, advanced location technology offers an added level of safety for at-work employees, visitors, and contractors. Learn how a site-specific location solution streamlines safety processes while addressing up to 70% of recordable injuries.
In an AIChE recorded webinar, Digital Innovations for Improving Safety in Chemical Plants, Emerson’s Michael Machuca and Marty McDonough highlight was to drive safety improvements for this important industry.
In a Tank Storage article, Overfill Prevention, Emerson’s Richard Ireland shares updates about the API 2350 standard 5th edition (published September 1, 2000) which addresses overfill prevention in these storage tanks.
In a Process Engineering article, Improve the reliability of safety instrumented systems with advanced measurement technologies, Emerson’s Julie Valentine and Meha Jha share how technology advancements combined with best practices helps drive process safety improvements.
Riyaz Ali provides clarity on when to assign the SIL suitability for valves used in different scenarios (process control vs. safety shutdown) and establish criteria to assign SIL applicability for the “Final Element”.
Emerson’s Kevin Thomas discussed corrosion and erosion monitoring at the 4C Health, Safety & Environmental conference. Kevin opened citing some statistics.
