Complete facility identification programs designed to plant specifications

Pipe labels from MSI synchronized to plant asset information include FROM/TO and P&ID specificationsSelecting appropriate materials and planning installation of pipe markers, valve tags and equipment labels for any industrial facility is more complex than most people think. The first step in a successful facility identification project is design. MSI in-house engineers are experienced in the intricacies of developing and implementing a total facility identification program.

Our turnkey approach to facility identification starts with the client and pertinent project information. Using client asset information and drawings, MSI scopes a complete identification labeling project based on our clients' specifications:

  • Labeling specifications – We work with customers to determine the information placed on each pipe marker, valve tag and equipment label.  With our approach, much more information can be placed on the identification tag, including (but not limited to) the assets function, normal operating position, its system, FROM/TO information and P&ID.
  • Material construction – We will recommend facility identification materials that are designed specifically to last within the challenging environments typical of industrial facilities.
  • Color codes – Color coordinated valve tags and pipe labels let workers know instantly what system the asset belongs to. MSI will determine appropriate color codes and schemes that improve visibility and consistency among plant processes. Working with our clients, MSI will ensure applicable regulatory specifications are included based on geography, industry and good practices.
  • Barcoding – MSI has the ability to include barcodes on our identification labeling products correspond to plant databases. We work with our clients to ensure barcodes are synchronized to the correct assets.
  • Sizes and layouts – MSI works with project or operator teams to determine the appropriate size and layout for each pipe label as to ensure all regulatory requirements are met.
  • Attachment methods and location parameters – Permanent identification devices and attachment methods will be determined for particular types of assets in the plant.

MSI in-house design ensures complete facility identification programs using information specified by client. Once the information is gathered, our engineering team develops a “road map” that is used for production and installation.
