When I inspect pipes, it makes my job safer and easier when pipes are marked according to ANSI standards. The inspection time is quick and my clients are happy when they receive the bill.
Lake Oswego, OR (PRWEB) November 06, 2012
Structures of all kinds from house dwellings, apartments, schools, shopping malls, office buildings and manufacturing facilities require pipes containing water, gases and chemicals in order to maintain daily operation. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has put regulations in place that require proper marking of hazardous materials in piping systems. Pipe marking will ensure that individuals either living or working in the facility will be kept safe from possible gas leakage or explosion. The standards set by ANSI provide information for both placement and industrial color code recommendations for marking the pipes correctly. A free Pipe Marking Guide is now being offered through Labeltac.com that will help in creating a standard pipe marking system that is easy to understand and work with. Regulations require three critical elements which are the color of the marker, the size of the marker and letter height of the text on the marker and where the pipes are marked.
When pipe inspection or pipe repair is required, the markings on the pipes will make it easier for repair service people or inspectors to identify what is contained in the pipe and the flow of direction. Inspections and repairs cost money by the hour and by having pipes labeled correctly will reduce the amount of wasted time that would have been spent on individuals reviewing blue prints to identify what is contained in each pipe. Safety is critical and pipe labeling will ensure no unnecessary accidents happen. A pipe inspector commented, “When I inspect pipes, it makes my job safer and easier when pipes are marked according to ANSI standards. The inspection time is quick and my clients are happy when they receive the bill.”
