Pipe Marking for Sea Vessels
Pipe marking is extremely important on sea-going vessels holding flammable or corrosive materials. Ccrew members aboard a ship cannot seek safety from hazardous exposure or fire out on the water, which means that safety and preventive measures are even more imperative.
Pipe markers provide sea vessel crew members with all of the necessary information to safely operate around hazardous materials. With visible safety signs and labels, the crew members can act quickly and knowingly in case of a spill or emergency. These codes are specifically stated according to the ANSI A13.1.
In addition to the ANSI A13.1, the International ISO14726-1 standard defines the basic colors used for pipeline identification on board ships. Also, the ISO 1476-2 specifies additional colors that can be used in conjunction with the main colors for more thorough marine pipe marking.
