The protection of personnel, processes, and the surrounding environment remains a significant part of any automation strategy. There are hazards and risks with any industrial application. Process safety is a major concern to anyone who works in the process industries. We provide a broad portfolio to meet your unique process safety requirements.
There are fundamental steps to determine if your existing systems are acceptable. The first step would be to identify all safety instrumented functions and determine what level of performance they need to meet. This includes establishing the required safety integrity level (SIL) of each safety instrumented function (SIF).
The Functional Safety for Process provides an introduction to functional safety for process applications and guidance in the application of IEC61511. This is the process industry-specific implementation of IEC61508 that covers the safety management of electrical, electronic and programmable electronic systems throughout their lifecycle.
You need to reduce start-up time, increase turbomachinery cycles, get the most out of your assets, and maintain a safe work environment.
We can help. We have performed thousands of installations of turbomachinery control systems around the globe, which range from self-contained steam turbine governors to plant-wide triple redundant platforms.
With our coordinated turbomachinery control systems, you can achieve optimized train control that helps to:
Recent events in the oil and gas industry have emphasized the importance of maintaining the highest standards of safety. These events have spotlighted the potential worker, environmental, and business ramifications of a significant safety event. Oil and gas producers and the operators who manage their production facilities demand the highest level of safety. This high level of safety helps protect personnel, the environment, and assets while maintaining maximum uptime and minimal operational disruption.
The decision to upgrade a safety system in a process plant is never one that is taken lightly. The drivers behind this decision are often complex and influenced by many factors and stakeholders. Asset owners commonly find themselves faced with a primary and secondary set of reasons for a safety system upgrade.
We provide a wide range of services to help increase productivity, optimize plant assets, and improve financial performance. We also offer flexibility in the delivery and support of the PlantPAx® system through the global reach of the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork™.
Whether you are an engineer, operator, or maintenance professional, ongoing training can help improve performance and assist with knowledge transfer. We offer various forms of training including tailored, on-site, virtual and standard instructor-led courses.
