Emerson Process Management’s DeltaV SIS process safety system has received certification from TÜV Rheinland, a German organization similar to Underwriters Laboratories in the United States.

Based in Cologne, TÜV is a product safety and quality assurance testing firm for North America, Europe and Asia. It has certified the DeltaV SIS system as meeting the requirements for the following three burner-management standards:
  • National Fire Protection Association, NFPA 85: Boiler and Combustion Systems Hazards Code.

  • European Standard, EN 298: Automatic Gas Burner Control Systems for Gas Burners and Gas Burning Appliances with or without Fans.

  • European Standard, EN 50156: Electrical Equipment for Furnaces and Ancillary Equipment.
All the standards cover the design and installation of fuel-burning equipment and their associated systems.

“With many existing DeltaV SIS installations already being used in burner-management applications, the NFPA 85, EN 298 and EN 50156 product certifications give users additional assurance" that their systems are well-suited for use with fired equipment, says Emerson’s Mike Boudreaux, Delta’s brand manager.
