      Chemical Safety: Protect Your People and Processes

      Are Your Safety Instrumented Systems up to Current Standards?

      It’s the nature of this business. Most chemical processes present potential hazards. Some of these hazards can have an adverse effect on people, assets, the environment, or your market perception. A correctly designed, installed, and maintained safety instrumented system (SIS) can reduce that risk.

      Whether you are facing an expansion, a new process, or upgrades to existing SIS, ESD, BMS, or TMC, we can help. Get the facts from an experienced functional safety certified engineer. They witness many different scenarios. So, they’re poised to offer direction on both process and machine applications. The technologies that we deploy are scalable from small to large, simplex to triplicated, and capable of up to SIL 3. We provide full lifecycle services to support you in design, build, operation, and maintenance of your chemical process safety solutions.

      What Our Customers are Saying
      "We are continuing to realise the many benefits that the new automated system is providing. It has met all of our key requirements by allowing us to reduce labour costs, while also improving quality control and safety. In addition, the solution has established a low base cost to run the plant over time which helps to improve our productivity and competitiveness."
