Is there a specific code for nameplates in asme?

Is there a specific code for nameplates in asme?

(OP)
So i just found out our nameplates on our valves are not holding up to the test of time and harsh environments. Is there a specific code that asme calls out for nameplates? This would be for a 5000 psi valve, usually used in the oilfield. Not on the wellhead.

RE: Is there a specific code for nameplates in asme?

ASME B16.34 requires marking on the valve body as well as an identification plate. ASME B16.34 states marking shall comply with MSS SP-25.

Thank you for the help.

RE: Is there a specific code for nameplates in asme?

5000 psi is API 6A, but section 8 only says what type of information is required and not on the nameplate material.

By the look of it MSS-25 is the same, i.e. no recommendation.

I think I've only seen this on company specifications, not a code.

Stainless steel or aluminium seem to be favourite materials.

Or ask these people? https://www.american-nameplate.com/blog/guide-to-n...
