Product Description

The Merit Brass nipple is a seamless schedule 40 red brass pipe fitting with male National Pipe Taper (NPT) threads for connecting and extending female threaded pipes. The fitting has NPT threads for creating tighter seals than straight threads. Made of red brass, this schedule 40 seamless nipple is easier to clean than regular brass and more corrosion resistant than stainless steel. Seamless pipe is produced from a solid piece of metal that is heated and moved over a form until the steel is shaped into a hollow tube. It can withstand pressure better than ductile or welded pipes. The nipple meets standard NSF/ANSI 61 for use with drinking water supplies of pH 6.5 and higher and ASTM B-687 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).

Merit Brass manufactures pipe nipples following ISO 9001 standards for quality assurance. Family-owned since 1937, the company is based in Cleveland, OH. Merit Brass distributes pipe fittings to the United States and Canada.

Glad that this product is made available and wish that more people would offer lead free brass items.

The threads are good, the material seems to be brass and hopefully capable of its rating.

This cost about one third as much as the local big store and I needed a bunch of them so I saved about 70%

Well, I never thought about ordering a pipe on Amazon ... Why not? It's hard to get a 2 inch pipe local. It showed up on time and its totally what it should be. I cut this into two pieces and it's good brass all the way through so far I can tell.

It will work, I hope for the Propane high pressure side of a manifold. The threads are good, the material seems to be brass and hopefully capable of its rating. This seller had better materials then the others I have bought from, so sticking with them on anymore I may need.

good price for a product I needed, Not always easy to come across at the local Lowe's and more expensive when you do.

Higher quality than I expected; given the price. Threads were clean, no burrs anywhere.

Bought this ta the same time as a Mr. Buddy Heater and hose to get everything at the same time for a quick install.

Next time I'm looking for brass fittings, I'll definitely be looking at these again.

Exactly what I needed. Had obviously been on the stock shelf for a while because it had a good amount of oxidation, but no corrosion. Ran the threads through a NPT die to make sure the threads were good.
