What is a Slate

These custom anodized aluminum tags store all the important information about your piece of equipment. With a simple scan of the tag, you will be returned with the model, serial number, warranty information, oil samples, work orders, and any other documentation that you may need in the future, right at your fingertips.

A Slate is an anodized aluminum tag laser etched with a unique QR code. They come in a large 2” x 3” style with two rivet holes for mounting, and a smaller 1” x 2” flexible style with adhesive on the back. Both styles are extremely durable, including resistance to UV radiation, chemicals, and abrasion.


How Can Slates Be Used?

As a Collins customer, you're getting Slates on your equipment already, including useful details about your equipment and servicing. Slates will appear on your:

  • Compressed Air Equipment
  • Pressure Relief Valves
  • Automated Valve Packages


However, Slates can be used for many other types of applications, such as:

  • Asset tracking
  • Maintenance & Inspections for Valves, Steam Traps, and More
  • Employee or Visitor Check-ins
  • Compliance Tracking for AEDs, Fire Extinguishers, and More


With the Slate app you'll be able to fully customize the content that's available. With the web-accessible dashboard, your Slates will be accessible from the desktop in customizable reports.
