When a storage facility's tank level rises above safe limits, a logic solver that is part of a Safety Instrumented System (SIS) initiates final elements to restore the process to a safe state. This can include shutting off input feeds to the tank by isolating the pump and closing the input valve. This white paper explores the possibilities available to SIS designers of tank overfill protection systems when using a logic solver. It includes examples of system topographies and their associated Safety Integrity Level (SIL) calculations.12/05/2013
