Identification of pipelines according to the fluid conveyed
Kennzeichnung von Rohrleitungen nach dem Durchflussstoff
This standard is applicable for the identification of pipelines in aboveground installations according to the fluid conveyed. The identification of piping systems on ships and marine installations as specified in DIN ISO 14276, as well as pipeline identification specifications for other applications are not dealt with in this standard. A clear identification of pipelines according to the fluid conveyed is essential for ensuring safety, correct maintenance operations and effective firefighting. It is intended to bring attention to hazards in order to avoid accidents and damage to health. The standard differs from DIN 2403:2007-05 as follows: a) explanatory notes regarding safe viewing distance have been included; b) the standard has been brought in line with the changes in the identification of hazardous substances in accordance with the Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 (CLP Regulation); c) the standard has been editorially revised. This standard has been prepared by Joint Working Committee NA 095-01-06 GA "Sicherheitskennzeichnung" ("Safety identification") of the Standards Committee Safety Design Principles (NASG).
