This infographic gives a basic overview of the necessary markings for pipes. The standards that are outlined mostly relate to the United States. Pipe marking is required and the standards are defined by ANSI and ASME. The requirements are not overly complicated, and make good sense. The colors of the labels make it easier to quickly determine the contents. The other aspects that are covered in this infographic have to do with the size of the labels and the required locations.

Creative Safety Supply created this infographic to help customers determine what labels they would need.

Final Grade

This infographic is very visually clear on its subject: the basics of pipe marking. Each point has an icon or illustration to show the main takeaways. Point 1 uses a typeface that doesn't seem to appear again in the infographic — make sure all of your font and color choices are very deliberate. Point 3, "Height of the Text" is an especially effective example of visual communication, using pipes to scale to show labeling requirements by pipe outer diameter. The next section is also pretty good at this; Guideline #4 could use a bit more specificity though, since based on the size of the label on that pipe, it would appear the labels are only a few feet apart (if it's a large pipe) rather than 25-50 feet apart. However, in all this infographic effectively tells its story through visuals and is pretty consistenly clear. We'd give this a B+!
