  • BAE Systems Case Study
    Safewell recently supplied BAE Systems with our ATEX Breathing Air Compressor with the addition of wheels and a handle for easy manoeuvrability. This solution provided BAE Systems with a reliable source of compressed breathing air from a machine which was safe to use in a potentially explosive atmosphere.

Join the Internet of Things (IoT) to Provide Real Time Insight

In all businesses there are a number of key critical parameters which can be measured and used to enhance safety, improve efficiency, reduce energy consumption, improve process availability, mitigate environmental risk and automate routine maintenance. The advent of industrial automation over the last 50 years has brought about many of these benefits and Safewell have been involved in engineering automation systems for over 30 years.

The use of the internet and cloud based services to remotely capture critical process data is an emerging logical paradigm and the 'Internet of Things' IoT is being broached as an inevitable future with predictions that there will be more processes and machines using the Internet than people.

Safewell has been at the leading edge of thought in this area since the late 1990s when it engineered a number of pilot automation systems which linked into corporate IT networks to leverage the benefits of real time information. The benefits of this approach are numerous and include:

Safer Process Operations using high integrity (certified) safety hardware and software to implement risk mitigation and bring systems to a safe state,

Providing sophisticated instantaneous oversight to automatically manage complex operations and risks,

Capturing long term data for analysis and business improvement,

Eliminating human error during repetitive work tasks which may arise from tiredness or temporary lack of focus.

In recent years SafeWell has developed an internet based process and asset monitoring tool, Viewprocess which allows key business data to be collected in real time and uploaded to our secure servers for display and evaluation.
