Bryan Preem joins valve safety specialist Netherlocks as Branch Manager Middle East & Africa

Bryan has been living and working in Dubai since 2011, leading local sales teams and successfully implementing strategic sales objectives for Daikin McQuay Middle East. He is now keen to further develop the huge growth potential for oil and gas safety products in the Middle East and Africa with Netherlocks.

He was particularly interested in Netherlocks’ recent product innovations, such as Intelligent Interlocking: “This new breed of applications is highly sought for in a market that is rapidly adopting products that combine both mechanical as well as electronic features – and Netherlocks is clearly at the forefront of these developments.” He is also expecting great demand for directly deployable operational products that make lives safer and safe work easier, such as the Power Wrench portable pneumatic actuator.

After defining key markets in the Middle East and Africa and setting up a commercial plan of action, Bryan will focus on intensifying relationships with local Netherlocks agents. He believes that trust, transparency and mutual understanding will lay the foundations for rapid expansion as Netherlocks develops its role as a key supplier of process safety products in the Middle East and Africa.

New ATEX Certification for Netherlocks FAITH Partial Stroke Testing System

Netherlocks has received new EX certification for the Netherlocks FAITH Partial Stroke Testing (PST) system, recognising the addition of a dedicated grounding means for the system.

FAITH PST from Netherlocks gets new ATEX Certification

FAITH PST from Netherlocks gets new ATEX Certification

The FAITH partial stroke product categorisation with this new certificate is now as follows:

net0513faithexmark

The FAITH PST device uses mechanical pins to limit the degree of valve closure, allowing for easy, safe testing of system-critical components such as ESD (Emergency Shut Down) and HIPPS (High Integrity Pressure Protection System) valves without affecting normal online process or operation. There is no risk of test angle overshoot or process interruption, the test can be performed at ‘real’ speed and will always return results.

For most cases, the FAITH is suitable for SIL3 applications, with an FMEDA (Failure Modes, Effects and Diagnostic Analysis) assessment carried out by Exida showing 0 Fail Safe Detected, Fail Safe Undetected and Fail Dangerous Detected conditions recorded from the test.

The new ATEX certification of the Netherlocks explosion-proof FAITH system is a good step forward in raising the level of applicability of mechanical PST in various process industries, bringing the highest levels of safety to as many environments as possible.

Houston, Texas (February 13, 2013) –The Interlock System Information (ISI) Touch Screen from Netherlocks enables offshore oil and gas facilities to comply with new mandatory guidelines from the American Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE).

The ISI Touch Screen from Netherlocks.

The ISI Touch Screen from Netherlocks.

The ISI Touch Screen stores all relevant information about interlocks, flow charts, instrument diagrams and other plant specific information in a central place, as required by the mandatory BSEE regulations. It is used in conjunction with Netherlocks key interlocking systems, integrating into the key cabinet or mounting separately. Combined with the Netherlocks key interlocking system, ISI eliminates human error and clearly displays information about each specific key and its corresponding interlock. Information is easily accessible to every operator in every location.

The regulations are part of the Workplace Safety Rule on Safety and Environmental Management Systems (SEMS), which covers all offshore oil and gas operations in federal waters. SEMS also mandates the previously voluntary requirement that facilities develop and maintain a Safety and Environmental Management System as outlined in the American Petroleum Institute Recommended Practice 75 (RP 75). This includes making safety and environmental information available at every facility, including design data, flow charts of facility processes, and diagrams of mechanical components and instruments.
