Recommends the use of a permanently legible tag for identification of materials in pipes less than 3/4 in. (19 mm) in diameter.
Valve tags help relay important pipe content information, valve identification or operation information at the point of need. Some stock valve tag options, like our brass valve tags and energy source tags, are available with preset legends. All of our tags are available for customization or as blanks so you may stamp or print your own tag text or legends.
