Kenexis - Network Security

Cyber security, industrial networking, change management, safety faults and failures, government regulatory efforts such as 6 CFR 27 CFATS and NERC CIP-002--CIP-009, and other concerns are driving an increased awareness that asset owners need to protect their industrial processes from cyber security threats.


Kenexis - Alarm Systems Engineering

Alarm systems tend to degrade over time as a result of poor change management and the addition of numerous alarms without following a rigorous alarm prioritization and rationalization process. Kenexis helps to identify alarm system problems by using a variety of data mining software tools and then to assist in developing solutions to the root causes of alarm problems.


Kenexis - Relief System Engineering

Kenexis can help customer to review their relief scenarios to ensure they are valid and complete, and also to calculate relieving rates generated by these scenario to ensure that the existing relief device sizing is appropriate under current operating conditions.


Kenexis - Process Hazards Analysis

PHA is a systematic, analytical task using one or more techniques to aid in identifying and evaluating the significance of process hazards, such as fires, explosions, uncontrolled chemical reactions, and toxic gas releases. We often encounter existing PHA studies that did not identify or evaluate the key hazards that are safeguarded by industry-standard safety systems on such equipment as fired heaters, or gas compressors.


Kenexis – Fire and Gas Systems Consulting Services

Although national standards such as NFPA 72 address numerous aspects of good engineer practice for fire and gas systems, the standard does not prescribe in detail how to site fire and gas detector install in industrial process facilities, nor does it address the selection of appropriate detection technologies.


SIS Safety Lifecycle Consulting Services

As a result of our vast experience in the field of SIS engineering, Kenexis has developed advanced software tools which allow our expert consultants to execute SIL Verification calculations more accurately and efficiently then our competition, providing our clients with superior results at a fraction of the price.
