Ma­chin­ery pro­tec­tion sys­tem earns SIL 2 rat­ing

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH - DE­TAILS, WWW.EMER­SON.COM/ MACHINERYPROTECTIONSYSTEMS.

Ma­chin­ery Health Mon­i­tor is now cer­ti­fied for Safety In­tegrity Level (SIL) 2, pro­vid­ing users greater con­fi­dence against as­set and process fail­ures, says the com­pany. Com­mon ex­am­ples of process ap­pli­ca­tions where SIL 2 ad­vanced safety in­tegri­ties are needed are steam and gas tur­bines in power plants and crit­i­cal re­fin­ery and nu­clear in­dus­try as­sets.

The AMS 6500’s cer­ti­fi­ca­tion gives users added as­sur­ance that it will re­li­ably de­liver the ap­pro­pri­ate in­sight into the health of crit­i­cal as­sets. Whether or­gan­i­sa­tions need SIL cer­ti­fied equip­ment to meet com­pany guide­lines or to com­ply with le­gal re­quire­ments, SIL rat­ings help eval­u­ate whether a spe­cific tech­nol­ogy meets the se­lected risk tol­er­ance for in­dus­trial ap­pli­ca­tions.

“More and more or­gan­i­sa­tions are find­ing they need SIL 2 cer­ti­fi­ca­tion to meet in­ter­na­tional stan­dards and ma­chine di­rec­tives re­quir­ing cer­tain SIL rat­ings,” said Björn Müller, prod­uct man­ager for sen­sors and sys­tems, Emer­son Au­to­ma­tion So­lu­tions. “SIL cer­ti­fi­ca­tion is one more way we can help cus­tomers achieve com­pli­ance while demon­strat­ing our com­mit­ment to risk re­duc­tion.”

For crit­i­cal me­chan­i­cal equip­ment, the AMS 6500 pro­vides pre­dic­tive in­tel­li­gence and pro­tec­tion ca­pa­bil­i­ties, help­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions achieve Op­er­a­tional Cer­tainty through im­proved re­li­a­bil­ity and safety.
