Understanding NFPA 85 & 86 2011 Revisions For Development Of Flexible, Cost-Effective Burner Management Design


Burner Management Systems (BMS) are one of the most wide-spread process safety applications utilized throughout the Chemical, Petrochemical, and Oil & Gas Industries. Historically, there hasn't been much guidance on the use of automation systems for BMS other than older standards that left much to interpretation. Fortunately, NFPA 85 & 86 have been revised and can now assist you in devising a better, more flexible and cost-effective BMS design.

Join us for this 45-minute educational webinar that will quickly bring you up to speed on the latest revisions in NFPA 85 & 86 for Burner Management Systems. Learn how this revised standard can assist you in designing a compliant BMS that minimizes risks and reduces costs, while enhancing safety in process and control facilities.

Key topics:

  • Determining if your existing BMS is compliant to the latest (2011) NFPA standards
  • Assigning safety integrated levels (SIL) to your BMS
  • Understanding strategies that will help drastically reduce operator errors
  • Designing a more flexible, yet cost-effective, BMS
  • Reducing need for manual manipulation by automating combustion permissive sequences during start up, shutdown and dynamic transitions
  • Bridging communication gaps between operations and software design teams
