Version 1.0 December 2005
Series 8316 Solenoid Valve
ASCO, Florham Park, NJ, USA
Systematic Integrity: SIL 3 Capable
SIL 3 Capability:
The product has met manufacturer design process requirements of Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 3. These are
intended to achieve sufficient integrity against systematic errors of design by the manufacturer. A Safety
Instrumented Function (SIF) designed with this product must not be used at a SIL level higher than the
statement without prior use justification by end user or diverse technology redundancy in the design.

Random Integrity for standalone solenoid valve:


Type A Device: SIL 3 @ HFT=1 / SIL 2 @ HFT=0
For solenoid valve used in final element assembly, SIL must be also verified for the
specific application using the following failure rate data.
Table 1 Failure rates Series 8316 3/2 Solenoid valve

Failure rate (in FIT)


Failure category 8316A 8316B
Fail Safe 85 135
Fail Dangerous Undetected 159 160
No Effect 443 479

Table 2 Failure rates Series 8316 3/2 Solenoid valve, with partial valve stroke testing[1]

Failure rate (in FIT)


Failure category 8316A 8316B
Fail Safe 85 135
Fail Dangerous Detected 157.4 157.9
Fail Dangerous Undetected 1.6 1.6
No Effect 443 479

SIL Verification:
The Safety Integrity Level (SIL) of an entire Safety Instrumented Function (SIF) must be verified via a
calculation of PFDavg considering redundant architectures, proof test interval, proof test effectiveness, any
automatic diagnostics, average repair time and the specific failure rates of all products included in the SIF.
Each subsystem must be checked to assure compliance with minimum hardware fault tolerance (HFT)
requirements.
