Marking out the maze

Marking out the maze

The Oxford English Dictionary defines Minotaur as: “A monster with the body of a man and the head of a bull.” In Greek mythology the monster was the result of the union of Pasiphaë, wife of King Minos of Crete, and a bull.

“The Minotaur was confined in a labyrinth and fed with human flesh. It was eventually slain by Theseus, who thus freed Athens from a regular tribute of seven young men and seven young women sent to the monster.”

Luckily this isn’t ancient Greece, but field operators in a chemical, oil or gas plant often face a labyrinth of pipes and instruments. They have to rely on past training and experience to know where they need to be. To easily navigate these ever-evolving environments, Brady offers durable signage solutions for a more efficient turnaround.

The signage can be used in a number of ways to support field operators: gauges and fluid containers can be marked to show allowable ranges or levels; lubrication points can be identified; and equipment can be labelled with a barcode linking to maintenance history, or supplier information, to easily reorder parts.

Checklists and procedures can be attached to the equipment itself to optimise compliance. Pipe contents, flow direction, source and destination information can also be displayed where they are needed.

The signs are resistant to UV exposure, weathering, extreme temperatures and chemicals. They can be printed on site using a Brady printer and pre-defined templates (very handy if you need to mark a labyrinth out on the go …).
