Graphic Products, Inc., the world’s leading safety and industrial label printer and supplier, has introduced an all-in-one pipe marking kit for busy facility safety managers. No need to invest hours researching the appropriate labeling supplies. The DLP 300 Pipe Marking Kit gives you everything to get started creating custom pipe labels for your facility.
The DLP 300 Pipe Marking Kit contains:
•DL 300 thermal transfer printer
•Two and four-inch wide color vinyl label supplies that comply with ASME/ANSI A13.1 pipe identification standards
•Yellow for flammable
•Brown for combustible
•Orange for toxic and corrosive

Facility safety managers are responsible for ensuring compliance with safety regulations, preserving worker health and safety, monitoring worker compliance and implementing corrections as needed.
Large facilities have thousands of fluid, air, gas or vapor carrying pipes and all must be properly identified. Pipe markers must clearly convey the contents of the pipes and give further details if special hazards such as extreme temperatures or pressures exist.
The DL 300 thermal transfer printer which prints at 300 dpi resolution and makes up to four-inch pipe markers, makes creating a custom label straightforward. Coupled with word processing software, OSHA-compliant templates and extensive fonts, you may select layout, text and symbol, printer speed and quantity of pipe labels.
The printer ribbon ink and supply is as important as the printer itself. Choose the wrong ribbon and your message won’t last. Choose the wrong supply and your label or sign will fade, fall off, or be damaged by exposure to weather, sunlight, temperature changes, debris and moisture or other fluids. Choosing the right materials is crucial for pipe markers and safety labels to deliver their message over extended periods.
Requirements for pipe marking include:
•Indicating flow direction with arrows at one or both ends.
•Being visible from the point of normal approach.
•Placement near valves, flanges and changes in pipe direction.
•Placement at both sides of ceiling, wall or floor penetrations.
•Visibility at any line entry or re-entry point.
•Appearing on straight pipe runs.
•Placement every 50 feet.
