The Anderson Metals hex bushing pipe fitting is made of brass and has a male National Pipe Taper (NPT) threaded connection and a female NPT threaded connection. This hex bushing fitting connects two pipes with different diameters and has a hexagonal head for an increased bearing surface when adjusting the fitting with a wrench. It has male NPT threads on one end and female NPT threads on the other for connecting to a female and a male threaded pipe or fitting. The NPT threads create a tighter seal than straight threads. This fitting is made of brass for corrosion resistance, ductility at high temperatures, and low magnetic permeability. Brass can be connected to copper, brass, plastic, aluminum, and welded steel. The operating temperatures for this fitting range from -53 to 121 degrees C (-65 to 250 degrees F). This fitting meets American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) B584 and American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)/American National Standards Institute (ANSI) B16 specifications for quality assurance.
Pipe fittings are components used for connecting, terminating, controlling flow, and changing the direction of piping in many different industries. When purchasing pipe fittings, consider the application, as this will affect material type, shape, size, and required durability. Fittings are available threaded or unthreaded, in many shapes, styles, sizes, and schedules (pipe wall thickness).
Anderson Metals manufactures brass fittings, valves, and pipe nipples. The company, founded in 1951, is headquartered in Kansas City, MO.

And YES, it was manufactured in the Peoples Republic of China.
P.S. Make sure you have an abundant supply of pipe dope or thread sealing tape BEFORE you get started.
Nicely machined, good threads, good fit to spec., no leaks...
If there is a down-side, it is in the casting, boring process where the center hole can end up slightly misaligned with the HEX head. I don't find this to be a problem, but I am NOT using these fittings for a purpose that requires great aesthetic value. Another question that arises is the "value" of the fitting related to its price. I have come to the conclusion that this is something to be determined by each user. I find these fittings to be somewhat expensive. Probably more so than necessary. However, they are no more expensive than any others and less expensive than some. So.... "Value" is determined by individual perception....
If you need a good quality fitting that you can generally count on to fit and work like it is supposed to... You should find these to be a good match. If you require perfection in the "look" of the fitting (the "form"..) as well as the function, then you may find a different product a better match. They work for me.... And I am overtly particular about most things.
Four stars for a good product that does the job without much fanfare. If the cost was slightly less and the form was slightly cleaner it would be five stars.
Get the equivalent from Parker, which in my experience to date is always excellent quality -- Parker's part # is 12-8 RB or VS209P-12-8 (3/4" MNPT to 1/2" FNPT). The 12-8 RB-SS is super high-end & thus pricey; pressure ratings per Parker catalog are 2800, 4900, & 5200 psi for -B (brass), -SS (Stainless Steel), and -S (Steel) versions of the 12-8 RB, respectively.
