Safety by design

We carefully manage risks in design and manufacturing to reduce your operation risks

Process instruments are often installed in hazardous areas, inserted into extreme process pressures and temperatures, and exposed to all types of materials. They must have designs that manage the risks of these conditions over their life cycle. Each Endress+Hauser instrument begins with safe design and manufacturing procedures built on generations of past knowledge and experience, ensuring the highest level of mechanical integrity.

Safety in the design phase

  • All our instruments are manufactured based on common standards in our own facilities. This reduces complexity and design risks.

  • We bring the right materials together to meet your specific application requirements. Our people have broad experience in selecting materials sourced from approved and qualified suppliers.

  • Design simulations reduce risks in the final product development phase.

  • With rigorous stress testing we establish safe operating ranges.

Inherently safe designs

  • Mechanical assemblies with predictable failure modes help define how process materials are released.

  • Containment designs make certain what's inside a pipe/vessel stays.

  • Non-intrusive technologies don't compromise process equipment containment.

  • Pressure-rated containment & process seals prevent hazardous media from escaping.

  • Instrument intelligence evaluates sensor signal & transfers status data to the safety process logic.

  • Software components designed according to IEC 61508.

Safety in the manufacturing phase

Rely on our people, tools and skills to ensure controlled manufacturing of 250 certified product lines.

  • Each employee in our organization shares the responsibility for consistently producing the products you expect and maintaining a safe production environment.

  • All of our processes are certified: Quality management systems are based on ISO and IEC standards (ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001) and regularly audited by independent entities (TÜV, EXIDA, SQS, DEKRA).
