Beaverton, OR, United States, 2006/12/12 - The new, Pipe Grabber Pipe Marking Sleeves make applying durable pipe markers to dirty, rusty or unlagged insulated piping fast and easy.
Graphic Products announced today that they have started shipping their new Pipe Grabber™ Pipe Marking Sleeves. These are clear plastic sleeves that fit around pipes. They provide a clean surface allowing labels to be applied to pipes that are covered by insulation or are too dirty, rusty, or otherwise in a condition that does not allow a label to adhere to it.
“Properly labeled pipes are an important part of safety in any facility.” Commented Steve Hudgik, Internet Marking Manager with Graphic Products. “But in addition to that, pipe markers help improve productivity by helping employees and staff to quickly identify pipe contents and appropriate shut-off valves. Pipe markers are also a critical component in ISO 9000 certification, which is required if you are competing in the worldwide market. They demonstrate your commitment to quality, organization, and the establishment of process standards. The new Pipe Grabber™ Pipe Marking Sleeves making it easy to label pipes that in the past could not be labeled.”
Pipe Grabber™ Pipe Marking Sleeves are clear plastic tubes that are pre-formed to curl tightly around a pipe. They can be used in either of two ways. They can be applied to a pipe and then a label can be applied to the sleeve. Or labels can be applied to sleeves in the shop or office. The labeled sleeves are then taken into your facility where they are quickly snapped onto the pipes. This provides the advantage of not having to carry around a label printer, and the label can be applied under comfortable conditions—resulting in fast, high quality application of labels and fewer mistakes.
Pipe Grabber™ Pipe Marking Sleeves can be permanently secured to a pipe using plastic ties. Should a label need to be removed for some reason, just snip the plastic ties and the Pipe Grabber™ Pipe Marking Sleeve can easily be pulled off the pipe.
Pipe Grabber™ Pipe Marking Sleeves are available in the following sizes:
1 in. x 9 in. -- Fits pipe diameters 1.0 to 1.5 inches
1.5 in. x 9 in. -- Fits pipe diameters 1.5 to 2.3 inches
