Pipe markers ensure Pipes containing Ammonia refrigeration need to meet the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR) universal guidelines. GHS pipe marking is the uniform, worldwide system for the labeling of pipes that hold or transport chemical substances. Medical gas pipe markers identify the contents of medical gas. Use Duct markers to mark the air flow.
Safety is the priority - when pipes are properly marked, incidents are prevented and others remain safe.
Workers are not only aware of pipe contents, but potential hazards, and the direction of flow associated with the materials inside the pipe. Bold, simple, and consistent labeling methods convey this information to reduce hazards, and ensure OSHA pipe marking compliance and ANSI pipe marking standards are met.
Industrial pipe marking standards exist and requirements vary between local authorities. The most common standard, ANSI/ASME A13.1, provides a frame of reference for most pipe marking projects.
Effective pipe marking programs and pipe marking best practices help improve facility efficiency and increase safety through visual communication. Effective programs combine ANSI pipe marking color codes, label sizes, printed text and arrows, and marker positioning to create clear consistent messages for compliance and safety.
