Understanding SIL: Functional Safety

The conversation around Safety Integrity Level (SIL) has picked up among the industrial community; but what exactly is everyone saying and how does it apply to YOUR process? 

Let’s attempt to break down this often-misunderstood concept and learn how it can be implemented properly. To fully understand a complex concept like SIL, there are a few other aspects to consider, this week we’ll focus on functional safety. 

Safety & Sustainability: Energy Consumption & Costs

When industrial processes are designed with sustainable programs in mind, energy savings is at the forefront. It has been shown that through optimization of energy, money can be saved and costs cut to keep processes running more efficiently and most profitable.

"Sustainability is not just about what is done, but how it gets done", by using the appropriate technology to measure and control solvent vapors and fuel levels, there are often many opportunities to lower energy consumption and save on costs:
