|HIMA vice president Friedhelm Best delivered a keynote on HIMA smart safety principles and practices|
For the first time, HIMA presented and exhibited in Vietnam at the International Society of Automation (ISA) Vietnam 2019, showcasing the HIMA FlexSILon boiler and burner control systems (BCS) solutions, with a full-sized mock-up of a burner process demonstrating how HIMA optimises the air and fuel ratio for customers.
Vietnam is expected to be the fastest growing economy in Southeast Asia this year. The main drivers of economic growth are the manufacturing and processing industries, production and distribution of electricity, gas, hot water, and air conditioning, construction, as well as the management and treatment of wastewater and waste.
Critical to power generation, processing, manufacturing, and chemical plants are the boiler and burner control systems. However, traditional burner controls are often insufficient and out of date in times of increasingly strict safety standards and environmental regulations,” said Friedhelm Best, vice president, Asia Pacific, HIMA.
“A small accident can have catastrophic consequences, endangering human lives, and incurring high costs. With the burgeoning economy and industrialisation of Vietnam, and the inflow of more human capital-intensive manufacturing into Vietnam, this is the perfect time for HIMA to introduce our smart safety solutions and best practices here," he added.
HIMA highlights the FlexSILon BSC, the all-in-one smart safety application for burner management, combustion control, as well as boiler protection and control. It is configured for multi-burner systems and multi-fuel burner systems, with centralised operation and observation of the firing process supported by extensive and powerful communication interfaces and protocols.
