FREMONT, CA: Brady, a provider of industrial and safety printing systems and solutions launches its new orange pipe markers that meets International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR) Bulletin 114 modified color scheme.

IIAR picked orange instead of yellow for their ammonia markets as it addresses to the ANSI A13.1 (2007) revised standard for ‘toxic and corrosive’ fluids. Yellow will be made available for established facilities that requires replacements as well as for the primary color identification purpose for flammable fluids.

 “Creating a uniform method of pipe identification, as IIAR Bulletin 114 supports, helps to establish safer and more efficient work environments throughout the industry. Brady’s IIAR-compliant pipe markers can help improve safety in ammonia plants by offering proper pipe identification,” explains Tom Smith, product marketing manager for Brady.

The existing yellow IIAR markers will be duplicated in the new markers for the materials like B-689 wrap around Polyester Markers which is good for dirty, rusty pipes; B-681/B-883 high performance/high visibility Markers that is good for high temperature pipes and exposure to chemicals, and B-946 self sticking Vinyl Markers which is easy to peel-and-stick markers for general applications.
