Making safety loops even more reliable with measurement technology
Functional Safety is a fundamental part of human and plant safety in the process industry. KROHNE has implemented all relevant aspects into a comprehensive portfolio of measurement equipment, meeting the latest international safety standards, and incorporating advanced safety features.
Optimisation of safety loops
Optimization of safety loops can be useful in many respects. On the one hand, the effort and frequency of the proof tests can be optimized, but at the same timethe failure probability of the safety loop can also be reduced
Selected instrumentation solutions
In recent years the safety standards for instrumentation could be improved in many areas. Many novelties could be realized throughout several measurement techniques, some are specific for individual ones.
Below a few examples:
Electromagnetic flowmeter for safety instrumented systems (SIS) and high-accuracy requirements
Variable area flowmeter for low flow gas or liquid applications and sample flow monitoring
Integral orifice meter run assembly
DP flowmeter for process applications with small line sizes (down to DN15 / ½")
Averaging pitot tube flowmeter
DP flowmeter for applications with liquids, gases and steam to high-temperature applications with dust-laden gases
