In the process industries it is not uncommon to find hazardous processes. These hazards may arise from the materials being processed or the process itself may be hazardous. An of these hazards, if not properly addressed, could lead to fatalities. When dealing with hazardous processes th safety of personnel, plant equipement and the environment are utmost importance but it is also paramount that the systems put in place to ensure safety do not themselves compromise the production process through spurious trips.
In order to achieve this combination of safety and fault tolerance a reliable Safety Instrumented System (SIS) is required, which can bring the plant to a safe state when necessary but which can also meet the high availability requirements of the process industries.
Safety Integrated for Process Automation provides a comprehensive range of products and services for fail-safe and fault-tolerant applications in the process industry.
