It is important that a plant does not encounter spurious trips, therefore disrupting process and losing time and money. Even more important is preventing the occurrence of an accident that could result in a loss of a plant, damage to the environment, or even loss of life.
This webinar will discuss how calculating the spurious trip rate is important and what can be done with that number (saving time and money). It will also cover dangerous detected failures, and how those play a part in the Safe Failure Fraction calculation and how they are compared to spurious trips. How simple mechanical devices and/or final elements can still partake in SIL ratings by means of the 2H method of evaluation without adding additional safe failures will also be presented.
