Functional safety and fuel cells may seem to have little cross-over on first glance. However, stationary fuel cell safety standard IEC 62282-3-100 requires a written hazard and risk assessment, and fuel cell functional safety design principles.Such assessments may not seem challenging at first, but certain early decisions are critical to success. How do you approach
Introduction Safety Integrity Level, SIL Calculation is necessary when a Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) is one of the critical independent protection layers for process safety. Applications of SIS include automated isolation, trips or interlocks found commonly in oil & gas upstream, refining, chemical and pharmaceutical production.Get the correct inputs first Before a SIL calculation is
