• At least once in every room • At each point where the pipes pass through a wall, a ceiling or floor • Close to each valve • Within a distance of 3 to 5 meters, depending on the length of the pipe, unless more are needed due to pipe bends or proximity to other pipes • Bundled pipes should be labeled individually • For pipes 200mm in diameter or less, the label should take up the entire circumference of the pipe • For pipes greater than 200mm in diameter, the label should take up about half of the circumference of the pipe • Use arrows to indicate direction of the flow (pipes with flow in opposite directions at different times may be marked with arrows pointing in opposite directions) • Text can be used in addition to color to signify the content • Color stripes should be placed perpendicular to the pipe axis
Best Label Printer and Tape option:
Marine Pipe Marking Standards have main colors (defined by ISO 14726) to indicate groups of similar substances. Additional color bars (defined by ISO/DIS 14726-2) are added to indicate specific substances. The additional color should be surrounded by the main color and have a width smaller than that of the main color.
