Flame control (SIL 3, PL e)

The flame supervision device is a component of the automatic burner control unit which complies with EN 298.
Each burner is fitted with its own automatic burner control unit.

Requirement as per EN 746-2


Non-combusted gas in the combustion chamber → explosion

Determining the required SIL pursuant to IEC 62061

Frequency & exposure duration Fr: < 1 per h to ≥ 1 per day; > 10 min → 5 points

Probability Pr: without flame control, this event is likely to occur. → 4 points

Avoidance Av: avoiding the hazard is impossible. → 5 points

Effects: death, loss of an eye or arm

Determining the required PL pursuant to ISO 13849-1

Severity of injury S: severe (usually irreversible injury including death) → S2

Frequency and/or duration of hazard exposure F: frequent to continuous and/or long exposure to hazard → F2

Possibility of avoiding hazard or limiting harm P: hardly possible → P2
