Safety system certified for burner management applications

The DeltaV SIS system receives NFPA 85, EN 298, and EN 50156-1 certification from TÜV, confirming use in burner management applications.

02/01/2011


Emerson Process Management’s DeltaV SIS process safety system has proven compliance with three burner management system (BMS) standards. TÜV has certified the DeltaV SIS system as meeting the requirements for the National Fire Protection Association NFPA 85: Boiler and Combustion Systems Hazards Code, the European Standard EN 298: Automatic gas burner control systems for gas burners and gas burning appliances with or without fans, and the European Standard EN 50156: Electrical equipment for furnaces and ancillary equipment. All of these standards cover the design and installation of fuel burning equipment and their associated systems.

Fire-heated equipment plays a critical role in the production process, so safety, reliability, and availability are paramount. Emerson says the DeltaV SIS system has the flexibility to meet BMS needs (large or small), gives operators increased visibility for BMS operations, and reduces engineering and complexity for BMS applications. DeltaV SIS simplex and redundant logic solvers are certified for use in SIL 3 applications in accordance with IEC 61508.

“With many existing DeltaV SIS installations already being used in burner management applications, the NFPA 85, EN 298 and EN 50156 product certifications give users additional assurance that the DeltaV SIS system is well-suited for use with fired equipment,” says Mike Boudreaux, brand manager for the DeltaV SIS system.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
