Pipe Markers for Sanitarium Foods

Growing up on our morning Weet-Bix we were very pleased when Sanitarium The Health Food Company chose Industroquip to manufacture and deliver hundreds of pipe markers for their massive manufacturing plant in Berkeley Vale on the Central Coast of NSW.

Pipe Markers are used in food production facilities right across Australia to identify all the different liquids, steams, gases and more that are used to manufacture quality food products like Weet Bix.

The Australian Standard 1345-1995 identifies the contents, direction of flow and safety parameters for pipes, conduits and ducts through colour coding. Pipe contents can include water, fluids, air, gases, electronics, and communications wiring. It is not intended to apply to buried or normally inaccessible services. However, the general principles may be applied when considering those services.

Pipe Markers are a quick way to identify contents in a pipe, especially in emergency situations. Standards for Pipe Identification in Australia are outlined in AS 1345-1995.

A Pipe Marker is a label that shows what is inside the pipe and the direction it flows in. Simply cut off the arrow indicator that is not required and apply to the pipe.

Our pipe markers are made of self-adhesive vinyl and are available in 2 sizes.
