EQUIPMENT AND PIPING COLOR IDENTIFICATION CODE

The objective of this Equipment and Piping Color Identification Code is to provide easy and rapid identification of the various unit process equipment and piping in a treatment plant. The large amount of equipment and piping in the treatment plant requires that a simple system be used to identify and distinguish the equipment and piping. A. The Color Shade Code should be used to provide a uniform shade of color when using various manufacturers and types of coatings (see Color Shade Code). The color should be based on the U.S. Government Federal Register 595 Paint Color Number. The Color Selection Code should be used to select the color for all equipment and piping in the treatment plant. The selected color for individual equipment and piping would be based on the type of flow involved. The Equipment and Piping Color Identification Code should be used to identify all equipment in the treatment plant (see Equipment & Piping Color Identification Code). The identification for all equipment should include both the proper coating color and the proper stenciled markings. 1.) Stenciled marking should be placed on multiple units of equipment to indicate the unit number, i.e., No. 1, No. 2, etc. Stenciled markings should be black or white in color to contrast with the equipment background color as appropriate. Stenciled markings should be 2 ½ inches in size.

The Equipment and Piping Color Identification Code should be used to identify all piping in the treatment plant. The identification for all piping should include both the proper coating color and the proper stenciled markings. 1.) Stenciled markings should include both the proper unit process flow abbreviations and a directional arrow indicating the proper flow direction as appropriate. Stenciled markings should be placed wherever pipes pass thru walls, at the influent and effluent of pumps or valves, at intersections, and at regular intervals along pipe runs as appropriate. Stenciled markings should be black or white in color to contrast with the pipe background color as appropriate.
