Manage flanges with these tags
Leaks caused by improperly sealed flanges connecting pipes, valves, pumps and other equipment to form piping systems may cause corrosive damage. Such damage is both expensive and time-consuming to repair, and puts both workers and others at risk of exposure to dangerous pipe contents. Using this new family of tough multi-colored flange-management tags gives inspectors and field workers peace of mind knowing that the work has been done accurately, on time and by professionals in the field. The tags are made from polypropylene, so they are durable, and resistant to water, tearing and ultraviolet (UV) light. Highly visible “at-a-glance” status signifies each stage of inspection — flange assembled, flange tightened, flange broken and inspected. Each stage is perforated and can be torn off to show completion. An 8-mm hole at the head of the tag enables the tag to be easily attached to the flange using cable ties. All tags can be customized to include company logo and sequential numbering for traceability with orders above 500 units. — Tuffa Products, Chicago, Ill.
