Tech/Engineering - Petroleum Eng/Sci / process control/SPC
German term or phrase: Aggregateschutz
Process control sytem and SPC in a plant for extracting basic oils from used oil. Neben dem Prozessleitsystem kommt für die MSR-Sicherheitseinrichtungen und -Schutzfunktionen eine sicherheitsgerichtete speicherprogrammierbare Steuerung zum Einsatz, die alle sicherheitsrelevanten Steuerungs- und Schutzfunktionen unabhängig vom Prozessleitsystem realisert. Hierarchisch aufgebaute Verriegelungen werden, wie in der bestehenden Anlage, einerseits programmiert, teilweise auch durch hartverdrahteten Aggregateschutz realisiert, der, soweit erforderlich, in der Hand-und Vorort-Steuerebene wirksam ist.
