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.

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.

There's not a lot to write about a brass fitting if it's made properly and does what it's supposed to do, so this will be a very short review. These nipples aren't pressure rated, but I'm using them in a 185 psi air system and they're doing a great job so far. The threads are clean and absent of nicks or burs, and with a little Teflon tape, there's no detectable leaking whatsoever.

The best thing is that at $3.05 for a 1/4" x 6" and $1.30 for 1/4" x 2" (at time of purchase) and Prime shipping, these are about half the price of what my local hardware store wants for the same thing.

I use a 1/4" brass pipe as a connection source for water well regulators. Being brass it is less likely of rusting shut and cause problems in the water regulating system.
These Red Brass pipes have clean, precision machined threads and even, blunt ends. These features can be appreciated when attempting to seal a thread to thread or end seal connection. The brass material holds up to very corrosive and abrasive water usage. Far superior to copper pipe and at this time, less expensive per application.

I have used 1/4" brass nipples before, for air regulators and compressed air projects. This one however seems to be a bit larger in O.D. and I.D. causing it to only thread into the fitting with only three threads. Not as much thread taper. I will be buying another one locally. This might have been a bad one.

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.

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.
