The Value of Safety Instrumented Systems

By Mike Klein |

A safety instrumented system (SIS) is important to ensure the safe operation of a plant. The SIS requires up-to-date sensors — recent developments in vortex flowmeters are presented here There are four key areas of concern for chemical producers that are always top of mind in daily operations. These are, in no specific order, ensuring safety, optimizing production efficiencies, minimizing emissions and improving reliability. In many ways, these concerns are interconnected and are governed by many of the same standards. To meet the stringent standards that govern this industry, safety instrumented systems (SIS) are one of the solutions that make the difference, precisely because they not only impact worker safety, but also environmental and safety issues around the plant. Not only do these risks impact workers and the environment, they also impact the financial health of a company. Any time something happens that violates codes, standards and regulations, it can have a significant impact on the balance sheet. Though engineers can create systems that monitor and manage the safety and operations of a plant down to the smallest detail, it doesn’t always mean that is what’s called for. If a shutdown is triggered over a deviation…
