Process industries utilize an integrated control and safety system (ICSS) for control, safeguarding and third parties. Beimco assist his clients to develop required documents which are requested by ICSS manufacturers for proposal and manufacturing. Beimco provide engineering consulting services in providing process control and safeguarding narrative, cause and effects, I/O list, RATS as well as ICSS requisitions and specification based on the project requirements. In addition to document generation, we assist our client in the ICSS manufacture supervision during the manufacturing and delivery and set up the factory and site acceptance test in the system delivery.
Factory automation, or industrial automation, is the connecting of factory equipment to improve the efficiency and reliability of process control systems. This in turn leads to lower costs, improved quality, increased flexibility, and less environmental impact. PLC and SCADA programming with ladder diagram (LD), function block diagram (FBD), instruction list (IL) and sequential flow chart (SFC) methods. Selection the control system components like CPU, I/O cards, communication, power supply, memory, drivers. Design and prepare the control panel location layout arrangement.
Design, develop, and test electrical devices and equipment, including communications systems, power generators, motors, and electrical systems. From the initial concept and first design, to the testing, implementation and handover stage. Power generation, grid and Transformer design and calculation, MV/LV power distribution, Single line Diagram, Busbar and switch sizing. Electrical motor and variable frequency drive (VFD) selection, Motor Control Center and Electrical supply and distribution - LV and MV Systems. Lighting protection systems.
SIL Classification and Verification
SIL determination and assignment of the risk-reduction required by the safety function. This will involve a safety integrity level (SIL) or performance level or other quantification assessment based on different methods including Risk graph or layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA).. SIL Verification to determine the Safety Instrumented Function (SIF) total probability of failure on demand (PFD) and architecture constraint. Safety Requirement Specification (SRS) of functional and integrity requirements for each SIF. Proof Test Procedures development as required by IEC 61508 and IEC 61511, or the review and enhancement of existing performance test procedures.
Process Safety Management
Functional Safety Management Plan to specify the competency and methods required for verifying and validating the activities in the design, installation, operation, and decommissioning. Hazard and Risk Assessment to identify what the required safety functions are. This means the hazards and safety functions should be known. A process of function reviews, formal HAZIDs, HAZOPs and accident reviews are applied to identify these.
Machinery Automation and Safety
Robotic automation system implementation is growing nowadays due to the cost interoffice, accuracy and optimal control in the production lines. following engineering services are given to production owners to develop this technology. ISO 12100, ISO 13894 and IEC 62061 specify basic terminology, principles, and a methodology for achieving safety in the design of machinery. It specifies principles of risk assessment and risk reduction to help designers achieve this objective.
Operational Cyber Security
Control and safeguarding system networks could be subject to a cyber-attack. IEC62443 introduces a range of security level (SL) which correspond with different strength of cyber-attack. A proper Security Level (SL) should be defined based on SIL requirement for the safety function implemented in SIS. Due to the connectivity of the automation system (PLC/DCS) to the upper layers, network security is important to protect the process data as well as prevent the controllers against the cyber-attack.
Rotating Machinery Control Systems
Corporate and partnership with Petrotech in rotating machinery control systems engineering and manufacturing services in Benelux, France and Germany. The Petrotech mechanical drive solutions (pumps and compressors) provide end users with a variety of unit control options to protect the machine from unsafe operating conditions and optimized algorithms match the machine’s throughput to varying process requirements. Our generator drive solutions provide your unit the capability to operate in isochronous or droop mode and when necessary switch between the two modes. This operational flexibility allows you to extend Black Start capabilities to designated machines to increase system availability and reliability.
Embedded System Development
Controller with a dedicated function which is used for machinery control, digital signal processing like image processing, noise cancellation and so on or real time computing constraints. Equipped with a micro-controller or digital signal processor within a large mechanical or electrical system for a special application. The embedded system proper CPU and peripherals selection based on the application as well as the system the functional design specification. Mathematics calculation to implement the logic algorithm and develop the software using C/C++ or machine languages. Design and manufacturing the embedded system hardware, test and commissioning.
