Save time and money by quickly pinpointing the location of buried facilities, with the 3M™ Electronic Marker System (EMS). 3M markers operate even in the presence of metal conduit or pipe, metallic conductors, fences, AC power lines and electronic markers of other utilities. All EMS Markers used for gas pipe location are color-coded to APWA standards for visual reference and gas utilities have their own frequency, helping reduce the risk of accidentally locating and excavating other buried facilities. All gas pipe location markers are yellow in color.
3M EMS gas pipe location series can be used to locate:
As a gas industry pipeline-safety professional, you understand that the only real protection a gas pipeline has... is clear, precise identification.
With current electronic location measures, you can wind up with a significant percentage of what we call “unlocatable pipeline”: assets that you’ve already invested in but are now hard to find.
Is it possible to transform your current pipeline-locating processes and actually reduce costs in the short run?
The answer is: Yes. It turns out that continuing to invest in an out-of-date approach to pipeline location can be very expensive. So, with the help of 3M experts, you can demonstrate early savings to help you make the case for moving to a long-life solution.
