About Us

SafetySIL is a private company founded in 2003.  The vision of SafetySIL was to develop technology that could eliminate hidden failures in Safety Instrumented System (SIS) devices.

The company is sole assignee of three U.S. patents which represent the safety systems technology developed by SafetySIL.  Each of the patents, while different in functionality and operation, were designed so that there would be only a minimal chance of a hidden failure anywhere in the safety loop, not just in the end devices.

Our vision has been realized in the SafetySIL Block Valve System and is being extended with the development of the SureSIL Pressure Sensing System.
