Pipeline (PMC) - Always in Flow
Smart Pipeline Management
Leak detection and location systems monitor pipeline operation to reduce risks. However, not only are conventional systems prone to false alarms, but there are also rising legal requirements to contend with. In this white paper, you will learn about a new approach to pipeline management that combines leak detection with an SIL 3 safety control system. As a result, you can minimize false alarms and reduce losses and liability risks, while fulfilling safety and cybersecurity requirements.
How Pipeline Management Becomes Part of a Plant Safety Strategy
A typical refinery or chemical plant contains miles of pipelines. Identifying and correcting leaks in these pipelines recently has been problematic. The potential cost of remediation and possible financial penalties due to pipeline leaks in plants has increased, as has the threat of damage to the operator’s reputation from the possible negative environmental impact.
Pipeline Management 4.0
Modern pipeline management systems must not only be able to identify and deal with issues such as leaks, but also be cybersecure. Reliable leak detection is also vital for quickly dealing with hazards such as corrosion or theft. Using HIMA solutions as its foundation, the Pipeline Management 4.0 concept automates pipeline monitoring and will shut off the flow if a hazardous situation occurs.
Turbomachinery (TMC) - Transforming Critical to Safe
A Holistic Approach for Turbine and Compressor Safety: The All-In-One System for TMC Applications
Conventional control and monitoring solutions for rotating machinery are usually made up of numerous devices and are overly complicated. This reduces operational efficiency and increases costs. Operators require their machines to run reliably, safely, and cost-effectively. Find out how you can achieve this by implementing predictive maintenance, integrating your machinery into the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and acting on machinery performance data, using safety hardware and software from HIMA.
Rail - On the Right Track for the Future
Benefitting from COTS Controllers
Proprietary safety technology currently prevails in the railway industry. However, the situation is changing, with more and more system integrators, rolling stock manufacturers and railway operators worldwide opting for standardized, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems. Learn how you benefit from a more cost-effective and sustainable safety solution, and what you should know when selecting a COTS system.
