NE 154: Functional Safety New Namur Recommendation About Functional Safety in Batch Processes
A new Namur Recommendation has been released. The NE 154 Functional Safety in Batch Processes may now be obtained from the Namur Office.
Leverkusen/Germany – Batch processes pose a challenge on implementing SISs, since batch produced products often require the selection of different trip points and/or SIFs depending on the recipe being used or the phase the process is in. However, the relevant safety standards (e.g. IEC 61511-1) do not explicitly make a distinction between functional safety in batch processes and functional safety in continuous processes. This recommendation describes an approach to implement SIFs in batch processes.
