Pipe Markers Valve Tags Nameplates. Standardized abbreviations are used, and each section is printed in a specific way. Detachable arrow printed in black.
Yellow pipe labels were used to mark any pipe containing a hazardous material. Anhydrous ammonia is not the sort of stuff you want to go swimming in!

The color schemes may also be applied to portions of the refrigeration system beyond machinery rooms. Orange is the New Yellow While the previous version of the Bulletin used a design that was mostly yellow, the current labels are mostly orange.
Pressure in excess of 70 psig will be considered to be high pressure and printed in black letters on a red kiar. There are two requirements for these alternate schemes:. The same system must used across the entire facility. Printed in black Physical State Section: Do the changes to the standard mean that you need to replace all of your existing labels?
The guideline specifically allows alternative color schemes, such as the one used in the older version of the IIAR standard — or any other color scheme that works well for your facility.

This format was in place in the previous revision of the guideline, so many engineers are already familiar with it. As a whole, though, the recommended label format has kept its shape. Pressure equal to or less than 70 psig will be considered to be low pressure and printed in black on a green band.
Looking for high-quality, standards-compliant ammonia markers? In addition to the abbreviation, the use of a temperature or a pressure commonly associated with a particular line may further assist the operator. Abbreviating the names given to pipes in the ammonia refrigeration system will assist the operator in identifying and tracing the system. In those areas where state codes and government regulations are not conflicted, ammonia refrigerated facilities have the option to implement a company documented piping color scheme.
The reference chart, legend, or key should be made of durable material that will remain legible. They include preferred designations for several new types of equipment. Component markers will bear the name of the equipment they identify, e. What Else is New? 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.
