High Integrity Pressure Protection System (HIPPS)

HIPPS are Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) designed and managed to achieve high integrity (e.g., SIL 2 or SIL 3)

The major elements of these systems are :

* Sensor(s): Detect abnormal operating conditions (over/under pressure, temperature, flow, etc.).
* Logic solver: Electrical / Electronic / Programmable Electronic System that process
* Input conditions and change outputs to initiate final element action.
* Final element(s): Take the process to the safe state.



* The increased reliability of the HIPPS system minimises the need for other safety related devices such as relief valves
* Prevent Against - Fatal accidents
   - Damage to expensive equipment
   - Production down time
* Allows a reduction in the downstream pressure ratings for equipment / pipelines
* Substantially reduce flare capacity.

Pressure Range : ANSI 150 to ANSI 2500, API 2000 to 15000

Materials : Alloy Steel, Alloy Steel internally Clad with Inconel 625. Duplex, Super Duplex, Inconel, etc.

Sizes : ½” to 42”
