Facilities with safety instrumented systems can now take advantage of the new SIL (safety integrity level) 2/3 functional safety certification of the Rosemount 8800 Vortex flowmeters (photo), per IEC 61508, which can help mitigate risk, enhance plant safety and protect personnel. The non-clog Rosemount 8800 Vortex portfolio offers safety and reliability features, such as online removable sensors to reduce process downtime and a critical process valve for aggressive applications, which increases personnel safety by preventing exposure to hazardous fluids. A variety of configurations are available to suit a many different requirements, including flanged, wafer, reducer, dual and quad meter body styles, supporting installations in lines up to 12-in. in diameter. Per an accredited third-party assessment, a single Rosemount 8800 Vortex meter may be used in processes requiring up to SIL 2 protection. The Dual Vortex meter is capable of up to SIL 3 and offers a simple drop-in solution to reduce installation costs. — Emerson, St. Louis, Mo.
