Professional implementation of your pipe marking
Pipe marking is primarily used to indicate hazardous substances in piping.
Non hazardous substances can be marked in the same style to prevent any misunderstandings arising from unmarked pipes. Pipe marking improves safety during normal operation and maintenance by providing insight in the installation.
Blomsma Signs & Safety has many years of experience with the implementation of pipe marking in both the (petro) chemical, offshore and heavy industry and water treatment plants. Our skilled engineers determine the required pipe markings from P&IDs. The provided P&IDs can be checked during the implementation of pipe marking which allows our clients to update their drawings according to the current situation.
Overview and high quality
When pipe markings are placed, it is important that this is done at the proper position. Where a lot of pipes come together in complex pipe systems or manifolds, we place the markers ‘in line’. This provides an uncluttered and clear picture. We also make sure that the materials employed are appropriate for the application, the surface of the material and the required lifespan. Blomsma Signs & Safety aims to use high-quality products such as self-adhesive materials with a five-year 3M guarantee and dirt-repellent laminates.
GHS pipe marking
The Globally Harmonized System (GHS) is the uniform, worldwide system for the labelling of reservoirs and pipes that hold or transport chemical substances and mixtures based on their dangerous properties. The marking of pipes and tanks are obligated by law through EU 92-58.
Our GHS pipe marking contains the colour code for the medium, the flow direction(s), the correct GHS hazard symbols and a text describing the medium which is readable from every position. This layout guarantees instant recognition of the medium and any associated hazards at a glance. By using high-quality materials and applying GHS symbols your pipe markings will also be future-proof.
In accordance with national legislations, ISO-14726 or NORSOK
When marking pipes, we assess not only what is required by law but also what is desirable. Marking utility pipes as well, rather than only the pipes containing hazardous substances, will make things clearer and therefore provide a picture of the entire process. Because there are then no unmarked pipes, incidents are prevented as there is no longer any doubt whether pipes contain hazardous substances or not. After all, pressurized steam or air pipes present a risk too. Pipes are marked in accordance with ISO-14726, NORSOK L-004, NEN3050 or other national or international standards.
