What is a Pipe Marker?

A pipe marker is a visual aid that is used to identify the contents of a pipe, as well as the direction of flow and other important information. Pipe markers are typically used in industrial and commercial settings, such as factories, warehouses, and power plants, where the transport of various types of fluids or gasses is a common occurrence.

Pipe markers are designed to be highly visible and are typically made of durable materials that can withstand exposure to the elements, as well as chemicals and other harsh environments. They can be affixed to the pipe using adhesive, magnets, or other methods, and are typically located at regular intervals along the length of the pipe.

Adhesive labels are typically made of vinyl and are applied to the pipe using a strong adhesive. You can order common pipe labels to use on your system or have an industrial label printer on-site to create the custom labels you need. 

The information that is typically included on a pipe marker includes the name of the fluid that is being transported, the direction of flow, and any other relevant information such as the fluid’s hazard level. Pipe markers can also include safety information such as the appropriate protective gear to wear when working with the fluid.

It’s important to note that the use of pipe markers is not limited to piping systems conveying gaseous elements. Pipe markers are also used for piping systems transporting other types of fluids, such as water, oil, and chemicals. The specific information that is included on the pipe markers may vary depending on the industry or application.
