Increasing Safety in the Middle East
The E+H Overfill Prevention System was first installed in the Middle East. Read more about this success story here. Risknowlogy witnessed the SAT as part of the OPS SIL certification. The OPS is SIL 3 certified and installed as an out of the box solution. It monitors thirteen tanks with spare for an additional three tanks. The OPS monitors the level and either gives an alarm or takes automated action in case their is a risk of overfilling the tank. In case of any error or alarm, visible and audible notifications are activated and the related messages are shown on the display and on cabinet with the possibility to have more details about the failures. The OPS can be proof tested and full logs are maintained.
