Functional safety and hazardous area

Safety that is built in

Tracerco performs functional safety activities during product development, life cycle services and quality assurance.

We custom-design and assess nucleonic instruments to meet our customers’ safety requirements. ‘Functional safety’ refers to the overall safety of these systems, which relies on instruments to operate correctly in response to process inputs.

Tracerco develops and manufactures safety-related measurement instruments that are intended for use in safety instrumented systems, up to Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 2, in accordance with IEC 61508 and IEC 61511. These standards have strict requirements on the integrity of the safety functions performed by all parts of process safety systems.

Functional Safety Management is embedded in Tracerco’s Quality Management Systems. There are clear responsibilities and procedures in place for the realisation (design and manufacture) and servicing of nucleonic density and level detection systems, for use in safety instrumented systems.

In addition to functional safety, Tracerco designs, manufactures and maintains equipment for use in flammable atmospheres. These are in compliance with the IEC 60079 range of standards and include nucleonic density and level detectors that are approved to ATEX, IECEx, FM and CSA.

We also provide a range of radiation monitors for use in flammable atmospheres approved to ATEX, IECEx, FM and CSA.

Functional safety and hazardous area training are both a priority within Tracerco’s innovative approach. To learn more about Tracerco, visit our what we do page, or contact us  today.
