Safety Instrumented Systems design

Safety Instrumented Systems- Design

Many process plants handle large amounts of hazardous materials (including flammable, explosive or toxic chemicals)  at high temperatures and pressures (or in vacuum conditions)via complex processes. Hence there is a risk that there could be a disaster if something goes wrong and we could have fires, explosions and toxic chemical releases that can harm people and the environment. These incidents also damage assets and cause large scale destruction. In …
