Mandatory Regulations Will Drive the Uptake of Safety Systems
This research service analyzes the safety systems used in process industries in Southeast Asia and Australia–New Zealand. End users include oil and gas, chemicals and petrochemicals, power, refining, and others including metals and mining, water and wastewater, and pulp and paper. The product segments are emergency shutdown systems, fire and gas systems, burner management systems, high integrity pressure protection systems, and turbomachinery controls. It is a growing market because of rising mandatory safety standard and investments in end-user industries.
-The Southeast Asia (SEA) and Australia–New Zealand (ANZ) process safety systems market generated revenues of $ million in 2013, at a growth rate of % over the previous year.
-Emergency shutdown systems is the largest segment in the market, and contributed % in the base year, 2013.
-An important factor that drives the safety systems market is the demand for energy. Oil and gas is one of the major end users of this market.
-End users would want to have safety systems in place not only to keep industrial accidents to the minimum, but also to ensure that their other processes, such as programmable logic controller (PLC) and distributed control system (DCS) operations, are not affected.
-The top participants are Yokogawa Electric Corporation, Invensys Triconex, ABB, Honeywell Process Solutions, and HIMA. Together they held % of the market shares, as they are active in most end-user segments.
-Other notable participants are Schneider Electric, Emerson Process Management, Rockwell Automation, and Siemens AG; however, these companies specialize only in – segments.
Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) guide a process into a safe state of operations when a predetermined set of conditions-such as pressure, temperature, level, or speed-are violated.
-These systems act like the power trippers used in homes, where they trip the process if it is unable to handle the pre-set parameters.
-Other terms commonly used for SIS include safety shutdown system (SSD) and safety interlock systems.
-These systems provide safety control functions and complement the basic process control system (BPCS).
-SIS consist of sensors, logic solvers, power supplies, field wiring, final control elements, and communication interfaces. Safety Integrity Level (SIL)
-SIL is the measure of the reliability of a safety system.
-International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 61508 has specified four levels of performance for a safety system-SIL 1 is the lowest level of integrity and SIL 4 is the highest.
-As the rigor of the requirements specified for these levels increases, the likelihood of dangerous failures reduces.
For the purposes of this study, SIS have been classified into the following categories:
-Emergency Shutdown System (ESD): These systems are designed to minimize the effects of hazardous conditions. ESDs can be integrated with other safety systems to shut down processes partially or completely in potentially dangerous scenarios.
-High Integrity Pressure Protection System (HIPPS): These are protective systems designed to ensure containment in excessive pressure situations. Inadequate containment can have catastrophic effects on the environment and on human life.
-Burner Management System (BMS): These systems are designed to achieve safe operation in ovens, boilers, furnaces, and process heaters, which involve combustion. The BMS is used in flame safety applications in the oil and gas industry, power plants, refineries, chemical plants, and gas plants.
-Fire and Gas Systems (F&G): The function of these systems is to monitor areas prone to an outbreak of fire or the buildup of a flammable gas.
-Turbomachinery Control (TMC): These controls are critical, as they control the entry level of pressure so that the turbine is always operated at maximum efficiency level.
