MACHINERY HEALTH MONITOR IS CERTIFIED FOR SIL 2

17-01-2017

The Emerson AMS 6500 machinery health monitor is now certified for Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 2. Not only does this mean that the monitor can now be used in SIL 2 hazardous environments, it also provides users greater confidence against asset and process failures. Typical applications where SIL 2 safety integrity is necessary include steam and gas turbines in power plants and critical refinery and nuclear industry applications.

The AMS 6500’s certification gives users added assurance that it will reliably deliver the appropriate insight into the health of critical assets. Whether organisations need SIL certified equipment to meet company guidelines or to comply with legal requirements, SIL ratings help evaluate whether a specific technology meets the selected risk tolerance for industrial applications.

For critical mechanical equipment, the AMS 6500 provides predictive intelligence and protection capabilities, helping organisations achieve operational certainty through improved reliability and safety.
