Transforming Critical to Safe
FlexSILon TMC: Turbomachinery Control with Overspeed Protection
Around the world, the functional safety of turbines and compressors is becoming a focal point of industry. A small accident can have catastrophic consequences, endanger human lives, and incur high costs. The International Electrotechnical Commission reacts by introducing stricter safety standards – which can now be met with a single system for safety and critical control. FlexSILon TMC ensures all turbomachinery runs safely.
Here's How FlexSILon TMC Works
Monitor, regulate, and control your turbomachinery centrally. This eliminates the need for numerous single-purpose solutions from different manufacturers. FlexSILon TMC combines two proven HIMA products: The flexible HIMax platform ensures uninterrupted operation of your plants. SILworX enables you to configure and program turbines and compressors and diagnose problems.
The heart of every turbine safety system is electronic overspeed protection. Our engineers have developed a special solution for this that complies with the most rigorous international requirements: the SIL 3 standard. The module ensures consistent speed monitoring and reacts to changes within 20 ms. It can be individually adjusted, and the installation couldn't be easier.
From the flow rate calculation, to the setpoint specification: With standardized function blocks from FlexSILon you can commission your plants more quickly – and reduce costs. Whether you want to control turbines or compressors: with just a few clicks you can adjust critical thresholds and always keep track of the application's status.
With over 50 years of experience in industrial safety, HIMA has established itself as a market leader. We have successfully completed many TMC projects for endusers and OEMs around the world: ranging from revamp projects to turbomachinery solutions comprising hardware, software and services.
