The simple answer to the question of whether SIS devices need to be certified is, "No," but operators and the industry as a whole continue to ask for certification anyway. Why is this? http://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3475537/Must-devices-be-certified-for-use-in-safety-instrumented-systems.htmlSat, 01 Aug 2015 00:00:00 GMTFree LiteraturePaper, publication, video and mobile library app support the spread of HPI information and technology.http://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3466845/Free-Literature.htmlWed, 01 Jul 2015 00:00:00 GMTNew DevelopmentsNew product developments in the hydrocarbon processing industry.http://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3466847/New-Developments.htmlWed, 01 Jul 2015 00:00:00 GMTSafety lifecycle management challenges in hydrocarbon processing plantsMany automation and SIS vendors to the downstream HPI do not provide safety lifecycle management software that extends beyond initial commissioning work. In many cases, only the bare minimum SIF proof testing has been performed for the most critical protective and mitigative functions.http://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3465636/Safety-lifecycle-management-challenges-in-hydrocarbon-processing-plants.htmlWed, 01 Jul 2015 00:00:00 GMTUse advanced automation and project management to simplify refinery constructionProcess automation in oil refineries is undergoing major changes, driven by customers frustrated by what they consider to be slow and incremental advances from the main automation OEMs in the industry.http://www.hydrocarbonprocessing.com/Article/3465779/Use-advanced-automation-and-project-management-to-simplify-refinery-construction.htmlWed, 01 Jul 2015 00:00:00 GMT
