Gas max. high gas pressure protection device (SIL 2, PL d)

The Gas max. high gas pressure protection device described in EN 746-2:2010 subclause is designed to monitor the static gas pressure during the burner start and the burner operation of the system. If the level exceeds the set limit value, the system must perform a fault lock-out.

Requirement as per EN 746-2


CO formation due to excess gas → 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: as the maximum gas pressure is controlled by a pressure regulator and safeguarded by a safety shut-off valve, the probability that a hazardous event occurs is rather low. → 2 points

Avoidance Av: the hazard can be avoided by regular maintenance and the use of an SSV and RV. → 3 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: possible under certain conditions → P1
