ABB Limited and its Instrumentation Alliance partner, JWF Solutions, will be hosting two half-day workshops at the Instrumentation Scotland and Offshore Systems exhibition as well as showcasing the latest temperature, pressure, data recording and flow metering equipment.

The first workshop, Achieving SIL Compliant Safety Systems, will be held on September 3, and will review the requirements placed on Safety System Integrators and EPC contractors to supply a SIL compliant safety system. Vikram Baliga of ABB will cover all aspects of setting up a SIL compliant safety system, including how to select the right certified instrumentation and safety systems and an explanation of the support data needed to meet the requirements of the standard. The second workshop, Oil and Gas production in the North Sea presents some difficult challenges for the measurement of flow, will help delegates understand the various flow metering options available for North Sea oil and gas applications. Starting September 4, the workshop will be presented by Paul Gibson, ABBCOs DP Flow Product Sales Manager. Gibson will explain the key technologies available for handling the often highly viscous mixtures of crude oil, sand and other production chemicals common to heavy oil production processes. The workshop will explain the key benefits of the various flow technologies and how to select the right flow meters for specific applications. The event will also provide an opportunity for visitors to see a raft of new ABB products. A major attraction will be ABBCOs ProcessMaster flow meters, a new range of flow meters targeted at the process industries. With a choice of liner and sensor electrode options, plus other features including a host of diagnostic capabilities, the ProcessMaster is ideal for oil and gas applications demanding enhanced performance with reduced complexity. Equipment on display will include ABBCOs 364 family of pressure transmitters. Up to 50 per cent smaller and 60 per cent lighter than conventional pressure transmitters, the range comprises of absolute, differential and gauge pressure options, together with new models incorporating ABBCOs chemical diaphragm seal technology. The 364 series is designed to suit a range of industries, including those in hazardous environments, such as chemicals or offshore oil and gas. These products will be accompanied by ABBCOs surface mount temperature assemblies for demanding applications, plus the SM500F field mountable data recorder, an electronic data recorder that can be installed anywhere with a choice of pipe, panel and wall mounting options.
