In todays oil and chemicals market, time and budgets are strained to remain operational with a slight profit. Many facilities are making difficult operational and turnaround decisions to survive while possibly putting their operation at risk at the same time. There might be a significant way to reduce time and cost during operations and [...]

A prior blog on the Kenexis web site related to the requirements for tight-shutoff (TSO) for valves that are part of a safety instrumented function generated a lot of interest in the engineering community.  A link to that blog is shown below. Tight Shutoff Requirements in SRS Blog After writing that blog, Kenexis routinely received [...]
