A reference chart that fully explains the ammonia refrigeration piping and component identification markers, including the approved abbreviations, should be placed in areas that are conspicuous to operating personnel.

Reversible arrows for easy placement with any flow direction. Directional arrows will be printed on the marker body. Existing schemes for identification are considered acceptable. Wrap-around, strap-on, and EZ stick-on markers for piping and components. The “self-adhesive” type of marker will be printed with one directional detachable arrows.

That standard, created by the American National Standards Institute ANSIrecommended a color code for pipe labels that indicated the type of contents with a color.

Inthough, the standard was revised. They include preferred designations for several new types of equipment. The new version was adopted completely by ANSI.

Pipe Markers Valve Tags Nameplates. Pressure equal to or less than 70 psig will be considered to be low pressure and printed in black on a green band. Revised Guidelines for Ammonia Systems. Pipe iiad, from a viewer’s standpoint, will be different on every installation. The following chart shows the recommended pipe marker letter height and marker size based on the outside pipe diameter of the pipe to be identified and the distance between the viewer and the pipe.

Directional arrow tape may also be applied around the full circumference of the pipe. Regardless of the piping color scheme selected, a legend or key to the meaning of the colors should be posted in a conspicuous area.
