Process safety in the chemical industry, strong availability

Sustain productivity and efficiency with compliant process safety driven by reliable measurements

Process safety in chemical industry operations is vital, particularly when working with materials that are hazardous to people, the environment, and infrastructure. Maintaining safety compliance whilst ensuring consistency of output, high productivity, and cost effectiveness, is the primary challenge facing today’s chemical manufacturer.

How we can help

Fully compliant to current safety standards, the Endress+Hauser portfolio of safety measurement technologies spans the critical parameters of complex chemical processes such as extraction, reaction, separation, and filtration, to ensure maximal process control with sustained plant availability and safety.

  • Broadest safety measurement portfolio developed according to safety by design and fulfilling hazardous area standards: e.g. ATEX, FM, TIIS

  • Smart sensors with functional safety according to IEC61508, up to SIL 3 for documented proof testing procedures

  • Worldwide support network of safety expertise

  • Safety and standards (e.g. ATEX. SIL, WHG) seminars and training for plant personnel

Applications

Accurate measurement for product batch purity

Consistent product quality and purity requires reliable, transparent and accurate metering of critical process parameters, as does ensuring a safe and efficient production process.

Accurate measurement for product batch purity
Our expertise in the field

Endress+Hauser equips your batch reactor with real two-wire devices for flow and level, ensuring the requisite measurement accuracy while enabling cost savings on cabling, and providing additional space on cable trays:

  • Increase safety thanks to intrinsically safe output

  • Enhance protection with comprehensive Ex ia concept with worldwide approvals

  • Avoid plant shutdowns with fast decision support in case of failure (according to NE 107)

  • Simplify proof testing procedures with Heartbeat Technology

Ammonia level detection in the separator

Evaporation of liquid chemicals such as ammonia or alcohols from water creates risks when heating the vessel. Maintaining the appropriate levels is critical, and yet controlling these levels requires highly sophisticated and accurate instrumentation and techniques.

Our expertise in the field

The innovative Endress+Hauser Levelflex FMP54 provides gas phase compensation, the ideal solution for precise level measurement in high-density gas applications:

  • Accelerate commissioning, maintenance and diagnostics with HistoROM data management concept

  • Drive time and cost savings with simple proof test concept according to SIL/WHG

  • Enhance process safety with double ceramic coupling and gas-tight feed through

  • Leverage real-time data and diagnostics capabilities with HART protocol

Ammonia temperature detection in the storage tank

Ammonia is a toxic gas when kept at room temperature, explaining why it is best to store it in its liquid state at -33 °C (-27.4 F). Measuring the temperature of both the fluid and the tank walls is essential for the avoidance of hotspots, however as accessing the filled tank is unfeasible, highly robust and accurate sensor technologies are required.

Our expertise in the field

Combining Endress+Hauser StrongSens technology with our MultiSens TMS01 delivers optimal monitoring for the safe storage of liquid ammonia:

  • Increase safety with complete tank mapping (up to 100m lengths) via a single process connection

  • Reduce maintenance costs with highly durable sensors
