Increased process and people safety through reliable measurements and diagnostics
In the area of plant safety, measurement technology can contribute two essential points in addition to the areas of functional safety and explosion protection: On the one hand, extremely reliable measured values are necessary to ensure process safety. An incorrect temperature measurement, for example, can directly cause a critical condition in the process. On the other hand, there are also ideas for measurement technology that can contribute directly to accident prevention, for example solutions that prevent the leakage of process fluids even better or make work processes significantly safer.
Safety by hardware design for accident prevention
Help with direct accident prevention through measurement technology can be divided into two main areas: Intelligent design of measuring devices and fittings for sensors can significantly reduce the likelihood of unintentional leakage of process media, especially during maintenance tasks. There are also solutions that can make plant operations significantly safer. For example, the ability to calibrate PH sensors offline means that the maintenance technician only needs to replace these sensors on site with sensors calibrated in the laboratory. This completely eliminates the need for on site calibration, which often takes place in locations that are difficult to access.
