246 Pipe Markers Pipe Identification Guide * For pipes less than 3/4" dia. use a permanently legible tag. *White on brown available upon request. Marker Placement Standards: ASME (ANSI) A13.1-2007 Standard Visibility "Markers shall be located so that they are readily visible to plant personnel from the point of normal approach." Brady Pipe Markers instantly tell you all you need to know about pipe contents, direction of flow and whether hazardous or safe. White On Red Black On Orange Black On Yellow White On Brown White On Green White On Blue Fire Quenching Fluids Toxic & Corrosive Fluids Flammable Fluids Combustible Fluids Potable, Cooling, Boiler Feed, and Other Water Compressed Air Pipe Classification Color Scheme Outside Diameter of Pipe or Covering Length of Color Field Size of Letters 3/4" to 1-1/4" 5" 1/2" 1-1/2" to 2" 8" 3/4" 2-1/2" to 6" 12" 1-1/4" 8" to 10" 24" 2-1/2" Over 10" 32" 3-1/2" Adjacent to all valves and flanges. Adjacent to changes in direction. At both sides of floor or wall penetrations. Every 25' to 50' intervals on straight runs. Placement of the marker may be above or below the centerline of the pipe depending on the normal approach of personnel. Text Standards: ASME (ANSI) Size Recommendations The legend (name of pipe content) and directional flow arrow is the primary means of identifying pipe content. A13.1-2007 standard makes recommendations as to the size of letter height and length of color field for various pipe diameters. ASME (ANSI) Standard A13.1-2007 The ASME (ANSI) Standard for pipe identification is a widely used guideline in determining pipe identification requirements. The purpose of the standard is to: "assist in identification of hazardous materials conveyed in piping systems and their hazards when released into the environment." "Pipes are defined as conduits for the transport of gases, liquids, semi-liquids or fine particulate dust." Color Standards: ASME (ANSI) Color Recommendations Unmarked pipes mean danger - to both life and property. Numerous injuries have occurred through ignorance of pipe contents, particularly when outside agencies are called in under emergency conditions.
