Industrial Valve Tags
As any building maintenance manager or HVAC engineer knows, it is vital to know exactly the location and purpose of the various plumbing conduits and controls that keep a commercial structure functioning well and safely. And the larger the building, the more vital the task. Nothing is more befuddling to a contractor or plumber than to be confronted with a large, confusing array of pipes and valves that are not all clearly and individually labeled with easy-to-find industrial tags.

This immutable fact-of-life is particularly applicable to the HVAC (“Heating, Ventilating & Air Conditioning”) industry, where an astounding variety of controls and conduit types may come into play. The need extends far beyond just heating, cooling, and ventilating ducts. It also encompasses general plumbing, cold and hot water circulation (both supply and return), fire sprinkler systems, steam under pressure, and much more.
If each one of these conduit-and-control points is not clearly marked—with plumbing tags for pipes and valve tags for valves—then only chaos can ensue. Making sure such industrial tags are in place is not just a matter of convenience or good building management. They are essential to safety as well, in that they can help avoid pipe-related accidents and expensive repairs. And, depending on the jurisdiction, it may be impossible to pass a safety inspection without them.
That’s where we come in. Ketchum Mfg. Co. manufactures (right here in the U.S.A.!) high-quality industrial tags for the HVAC and related industries. Designed to communicate at a glance vital information about the conduits and controls to which they are attached, these circular plumbing valve tags are available in brass or steel, and in either 1″ or 1¾″ diameters. They can be purchased in sets of 25, sequentially numbered; or, with our custom laser engraving, you can include additional identifying information on the tags (such as a logo, special symbols, or specific text).
