About Process Safety Verification of Pressure Equipment
With our comprehensive know-how and many years of practical experience, DEKRA’s pressure equipment experts are fully accredited to offer support in process safety verifications of pressure equipment. Functional safety refers to the reliable provision of the safety functions of a system and is intended to significantly limit possible risks by avoiding systematic errors, recognize random errors and react to identified errors. To check safety functions of pressure equipment DEKRA uses microcomputers: They monitor the correct pressure in the steam boiler, trigger protective systems when necessary and prevent accidents when using machines.
Failures and constellations of a system that are foreseeable should not have a dangerous effect on the system’s lifecycle. In order to identify as many hazards as possible in advance, DEKRA uses HAZOP (Hazard and Operability) analyses.
DEKRA is accredited for Process Safety Verification in accordance with EN 61508 / 61511 and EN 13849 and performs safety and CE conformity assessment of pressure equipment according to PED 2014/68/EU.
