What are Common Applications for Valve Tags?

There are a variety of ways our past and present clients have utilized valve tags. Here are a few common examples:

Identification Tags

Clear and prominent identifying information is very important in industrial environments. It can be easy to get two valves mixed up and cause errors or slow down processes. Being able to identify all relevant information to ensure correct procedures are followed is a very powerful tool for any business.

Inspection Tags

Valve inspections are an essential part of the industrial business. Making sure they are functional and up to safety standards is a must.

While these inspections can take a long time, valve tags and inspection tags make them much less of a headache. Clear labeling means quicker, easier, and more accurate inspections that save your valuable time.

Safety Tags

Safety is always a top priority. Employees working with valves and pipes may be exposed to potential hazards if they are not cautious. One mistake is an accident waiting to happen.

Valve tags eliminate any guesswork and keep workers safe. Write-on tags can even be used to mark when equipment is broken or needs to be repaired.

There is also a multitude of OSHA and ANSI guidelines that require safety signs in potentially hazardous environments. Don’t let your facility fall behind on OSHA or ANSI standards. Keep your staff safe with long-lasting safety solutions.

Valve Tag Material

We use high-quality materials to provide you with the best custom valve tag. Some examples include:

What Processes are Available for Vale Tags?


One of the most popular choices for valve tags is the metal embossing process. A die set punches the metal creating a raised design. This proves is incredibly durable, and is perfect for industrial environments. Steam trap labels are often embossed to make them easier to read in any condition.

Some organizations choose to mark their own blank tags on-site with an embossing machine or label printer.

Photo Anodization

Photo anodization is a unique process that embeds information in between layers of aluminum material. This provides the appearance of printed text, but with outstanding durability. These tags are resistant to scratches, chemicals, weather, and more and are rated to last for 20+ years outdoors. These metal labels are much more durable than plastic valve tags, or temporary paper tags.

Write on Valve Tags

Should you need to add more information on-site, we provide write-on tags that give you the ability to add additional information should you need to.

Custom Valve Tags

At Metal Marker, our identification products are truly custom solutions. We can create valve tags or placards of any size, shape, or design. Add any text, barcode, numbering system, logos, etc. If you want something, we can make it happen.

Add color to aluminum valve tags with anodized aluminum. Their vibrant designs make identifying your pipes in low lighting or from a distance easier. Plus, they are frequently used for color-coding pipes.

Attachment Methods

In addition to choosing the best process and material for your application, deciding on how you will attach your valve identification tags is equally important.

Beaded chain

For fire extinguishers and other safety labels requiring valves, a beaded chain looped through the tag is a popular choice. Tag fasteners and other hardware are great options for equipment repair tags or machinery near valves.


Adhesive backing or banding tape may be used when attaching custom pipe markers to avoid damaging the pipe.

Note that the marking process selected may impact the attachment method options. For example, stamped brass valve tags cannot utilize an adhesive backing due to the nature of the process.
