High Integrity Pressure Protection System (HIPPS)

NEW! HIPPS is now available as a turn key product including all required documentation for ABSA approval.

MICA Controls Ltd. has done so many of these we are now offering it as a low cost product rather than an engineered solution.

HIPPS: MICA Controls supplies cost effective, ABSA approvable, High Integrity Pressure Protection System (HIPPS) for use in protection against overpressure scenarios without having to provide 100% reliance on relief valves and flare systems.

Based on our experience with Alberta implemented HIPPS projects, the main drivers for using HIPPS are to safely mitigate process risks to people, environment, and assets where conventional methods prove uneconomic or impossible. Our HIPPS Solutions ensure that you can confidently operate close to design limits, avoid unnecessary flaring and improve profitability.

The heart of the HIPPS Solution is a SIL3 rated PLC, consisting of logic solver and I/O system, integrated with SIL rated sensors and safety approved final elements.
