High-Integrity Pressure Protection System



High-integrity protection for your personnel, equipment, and environment

Suitable for onshore and offshore installations requiring reliable pressure protection of downstream systems, a HIPPS prevents a system from exceeding its rated pressure level. A HIPPS system is considered as the barrier between the high pressure section of an installation or production facility.

The SIL 3–certified Cameron high-integrity pressure protection system (HIPPS) is designed with higher integrity compared with conventional process shutdown and ESD systems. Each HIPPS is independently instrumented and incorporates field-proven Cameron components, including LEDEEN actuators and GROVE valves.

Protect against overpressure through functionality

The Cameron HIPPS reliably isolates the source of overpressure, reducing the plant’s risk profile. The safety loop consists of one or more initiators, a logic solver, and final elements. In addition to providing a complete system to meet safety integrity requirements, we incorporate functionality to ensure that the safety device is ready and able to function when required.

Monitor the system and determine system health

We incorporate system status feedback and condition-based monitoring feedback, enabling the operator to remotely monitor the system and, during routine proof testing, to conduct a system health check against predetermined criteria. This helps reduce operation expense with less human intervention.
