LSG signal tape “Caution, gas!”
LSG signal tape is an effective and inexpensive way to protect a gas pipeline laid in the ground. Such a tape indicates the location of the gas pipeline and prevents its mechanical damage when doing earthwork in the future.
The use of a signal tape as a warning signal when laying gas pipelines in the ground is regulated by PB 12-529-03 - "Safety Rules for Gas Distribution and Gas Consumption Systems". According to the said "Rules", when laying a gas pipeline, a warning tape with a warning inscription is laid over it.
LLC "Brandlenta" offers to buy an LSG signal tape for identifying the laying of gas pipelines.
Characteristics of LSG and the procedure for its use
LSG - bright yellow gas signal tape with black inscriptions “GAS!”, “Caution, gas!” or with a red inscription "Flammable, gas!", promptly inform the excavator about the presence of a pipeline with gas in the ground.
The tape is made of dense, durable and elastic HD polyethylene, which is resistant to temperature changes, high humidity, acids, alkalis and other aggressive environments. The material does not decompose, does not rot and does not lose its properties for over 30 years. The bright and durable color of the tape makes it immediately visible when opening the ground.
Available in 50-200 microns thick. The standard width of the LSG is 200 mm. The tape is supplied in rollers. On the basis of such a tape, a detection tape can be produced by rolling a metal conductor.
The LSG should be laid in the trench when laying the gas pipeline at a distance of 50–60 cm above it and approximately at a depth of 60 cm from the ground surface along the entire trench.
Benefits of using LSH
Using the warning tape "Caution, gas!" when laying a gas pipeline, it is practical and reliable for the following reasons:
- the level of operational safety of underground gas pipelines is significantly increased, preventing their mechanical damage during excavation work;
- it is easier to determine the exact location of the pipe during repair work;
- easy delivery and installation of this protective material significantly reduces the work time.
The logo of the gas pipeline maintenance company and its coordinates may be applied to the tape.
Signal tape is the most affordable, simple and effective way to attract attention and protect against possible damage to a gas pipeline laid in the ground.
