Easily and quickly snap on pipe identification to be OSHA-compliant, safe, and efficient.
Beaverton, Oregon – October 31, 2022 – DuraLabel, the industry leader in visual communication, label and sign printers, today introduced FlowFinder Snap pipe markers. FlowFinder Snap pipe markers eliminate the need for adhesives or fasteners by securely attaching to pipes via plastic memory. Workers, maintenance managers, and plant engineers can now quickly and easily deploy and update pipe identification.
FlowFinder Snap pipe markers are easy to apply, adjust, and re-apply on any pipe size or material. The reusable markers can be removed for cleaning and inspection, then reapplied repeatedly. All products in the DuraLabel FlowFinder line meet both OSHA General Duty and ANSI/ASME A13.1 standards and are available for every size pipe from ¾” to over 10” in diameter.
"FlowFinder makes pipe marking easy with premade pipe labels that snap, strap, stick or wrap onto any pipe surface meeting OSHA requirements, ANSI/ASME A13.1, and IIAR pipe marking guidelines” said Caleb Mayfield, DuraLabel’s Chief Technology Innovation Officer. “DuraLabel is the fastest way for operations and safety managers to provide compliant, facility-wide visual communication anywhere, anytime, or any place.”
Pipe Marking is Critical for Compliance
Pipe marking communicates the contents of pipes and provides important details if specific hazards exist, such as extreme temperatures or pressure. Pipe markers are important for maintenance and emergency workers to easily identify pipe contents and respond to issues quickly and safely. OSHA recommends following ANSI/ASME A13.1 when labeling all pipes to help with general facility maintenance and communication. Facilities without pipe markers may receive citations, or experience worker injuries and safety incidents.
New FlowFinder Snap Pipe Markers Increase Efficiency
The new FlowFinder Snap Pipe Markers improve plant-wide productivity. A worker can now simply uncoil the pipe marker, position the marker around the pipe, and snap it into place. FlowFinder Snap pipe markers reduce application time up to 70%, compared to adhesive pipe markers. FlowFinder pipe markers also lower costs, as one label can mark the flow of contents in either direction. The low-glare matte finish is easy to see in all levels of light.
