Process controls is the heart of the facility. Whether they are DCS, PLC, or single loop controllers, all need to work in harmony to ensure products are on specification and process upsets can be safely managed.
Certain critical processes may utilize redundant backup systems for critical shutdowns and first out management. Failure positions of various devices need to be determined and implemented to ensure they can actually go to the proper positions under adverse conditions.
Does your facility have documented interlock matrices and are emergency shutdown systems checked on a regular basis to meet regulatory requirements?
Haward Technology's staff can assist in these areas to ensure maximum integrity.
