SIL certification identifies all process hazards, estimates the risk of failure and determines that if a failure occurs; that the product will “fail safely.” Every component in the instrument must be examined and verified in respect to these crucial criteria in order to comply with the SIL restrictions.
The SOR line of pressure, differential pressure, temperature, vacuum and level switches are certified fit for use in Safety Integrity Level environments. SOR is one of only a few manufacturers in the industry to offer its entire range of switches certified to the IEC 61508 safety standard.
When implementing Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) in process plant environments such as power plants, offshore oil platforms, refineries and chemical plants, the SIL certification helps reduce risk at the process instrument level.
“Many customers are now requiring SIL certified products, as safety is essential. We wanted to provide an informational video and quick guide to help our industry understand the basics of the SIL system”, says Jason Aldrich Product Manager at SOR.
The SOR line of pressure switches and level switches are rugged field-mounted instruments. Nearly every SOR product can be designed to meet the demands of a variety of process applications and built to exact specifications. SOR instruments are engineered to order with off-the-shelf-speed.
