What are NPT plugs?

NPT (or National Pipe Taper) is a U.S. standard for tapered threads widely used on pipes and fittings for over 100 years. NPT connections rely on thread deformation- a metal to metal sealing design where the threads of the connectors themselves form together.

What is a hex plug fitting?

Hex plug is an important pipe fitting. Like a normal pipe plug, the hex pipe plug is threaded in the end and the cover or the top of the plug takes a hexagon shape. The hex pipe plugs are considered an easy and cost effective way to plug your pipe. The basic purpose is to stop the flow.

Is there a metric pipe thread?

Pipe Threads. These metric pipe thread sizes have been adopted by the ISO (International Standards Organization), and are primarily intended for pipes or tubes for screwing together or into ISO pipe ports on valves, cylinders, pumps, and other components.

How are pipe plugs sized?

They’re sized by the nominal size of the pipe, or the inner diameter. If you buy a 1/2 inch thread and measure the diameter, it will measure over 1 inch because it’s designed to have a nominal pipe fitting. The female fitting should be sized just as large as the male fitting to get the right fit.

What’s the difference between NPT and NPTF?

While NPT and NPTF are both designed to screw together, NPT requires a seal to be leak proof while NPTF do not. The L1 gauge requirements for NPT and NPTF differ for threads more than ½ in. in size, and thus, are not interchangeable. The difference lies in the Plug Gage Major Diameter and Ring Gage Minor Diameter.

What is hex bushing?

Hex bushings are used to reduce the size of female threads from a larger to a smaller diameter. Hex Bushings are threaded fittings that have male threads on the outside and female threads on the inside with a hex head used to tighten the fitting into the threaded opening.

How do I know if my threads are standard or metric?

Metric threads are measured by their pitch. That is the distance from the crest of one thread to the crest of the next measured in millimetres. The pitch of a metric thread can be checked by direct measurement with a metric rule. Imperial threads have their pitch measured indirectly as a given number of teeth per inch.

How do you know if a thread is BSP or metric?

Although BSP is a foreign thread, it isn’t actually metric. This is why it comes in imperial sizes: 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and so on. BSP parallel threads commonly seal via a 30° chamfer on the male thread to a 30° recessed cone inside the female thread (swivel only).

How do you measure a metric bolt thread?

Metric fastener threads are also specified according to thread pitch, which is the distance between adjacent threads, again in millimeters. This is represented by the last number in a metric bolt’s designation. For example, a bolt labeled M10 x 1.5 is a metric bolt with a 10 mm diameter and 1.5 mm between threads.

Do you use metric pipe fittings?

Use to convey air, water, oil, steam, hydraulic fluid, and natural gas. Plastic pipe and pipe fittings are lighter in weight than metal pipe and pipe fittings. They are typically for low- to medium-pressure applications up to 1, 000 psi.

What are the dimensions of pipe fittings?

What are the names of pipe fittings?

– Male threaded: Threads are exterior, made to screw into the inside of a larger diameter pipe end with internal threading. – Female threaded: Threads are interior, made to receive male threaded fittings. – Male slip fit: No threads, made to slip into a slightly larger female sleeve. – Female slip fit: No threads, made to receive a narrower male slip fit.

Are there metric pipe threads?

There are also straight (NPS) pipe thread fittings and metric (M) pipe fittings. Metric pipe fittings are identified by the nominal outside diameter and the thread pitch. These connections do not require glue or adhesive, but PTFE tape keeps seal tight. Threaded fittings come in a variety of sizes and shapes.
