We continue our review on Functional Safety. After talking about Risk Analysis in the previous article, the next step is presenting our services for the design and implementation of Functional Safety systems:
Our approach to Functional Safety guarantees several advantages: we strictly follow the requirements of the Risk Analysis while respecting the production and maintenance needs of the process / machine.
This in-depth procedure avoids writing generic documents, which would lead to issues during the risk mitigation phase or, on the other hand, would lead to excessively rigid countermeasures.
PRISMA has carried out Functional Safety projects in many industrial sectors, such as Iron&Steel: design and realization of safety systems for blast furnaces, coke batteries and sintering plants, steel shops, as well as all the downstream production lines, such as continuous castings, hot and cold rolling mills, industrial furnaces, continuous process lines, galvanizing lines, finishing and cutting lines. These systems are mainly based on SIL2 / SIL3 requirements with dedicated or hybrid controllers.
PRISMA developed Functional Safety projects for non-ferrous metals too, e.g. the access control of cleaning and coating lines for aluminium.
In the Oil&Gas industry we supplied, for instance:
In the chemical industry we support a safe production of polymers:
Furthermore, PRISMA has successfully completed several other challenging projects:
