Burner Management System Signal Splitter Application for a Pulp and Paper Mill

A pulp and paper mill had a black liquor BMS (Burner Management System) that per NFPA 85 requires that its safety logic system be totally independent from other logic systems.  The challenge was they required that key temperature and pressure signals also get monitored and recorded by their BPCS (Basic Process Control System). Learn how Moore Industries solved this problem.

Functional Safety Problem Solver Application Notes from Moore Industries

Functional Safety Problem Solver Application Notes from Moore Industries
When you add a single safety loop, have a few points to isolate or need to augment a larger Safety Instrumented System, Problem Solver application examples can help. They provide an at-a-glance example intended to convey solutions for particular application scenarios. Along with our white papers, this series of Problem Solvers for Functional Safety can be a useful resource for your functional safety project.

Moore Industries SIL 3 Capable STA Safety Trip Alarm Certified by exida®

Moore Industries SIL 3 Capable STA Safety Trip Alarm Certified by exida®

Part of the Moore Industries FS FUNCTIONAL SAFETY SERIES, the exida® certified SIL 2 and SIL 3 capable STA Safety Trip Alarm performs as a logic solver and acts on potentially hazardous process conditions; warns of unwanted process conditions; provides emergency shutdown; or provides on/off control in Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) and traditional alarm trip applications. The STA has a systematic integrity up to SIL 3 and random integrity up to SIL 2 which allows the STA to be used in a redundant architecture (1oo2, 2oo3, etc.) up to SIL 3.

EHELP: Using the STA for a high temperature Safety Instrumented Function

EHELP: Using the STA for a high temperature Safety Instrumented Function

Q. Currently we monitor the temperature level in our oven with a thermocouple and let our PLC control the oven. We now need to implement a high temperature Safety Instrumented Function (SIF).  Do we need duplicate temperature sensors and do you have a Functional Safety device that can provide oven shutdown capability on high temperature?
