Type 316L stainless steel is the low-carbon version of type 316 stainless steel. This fitting is suitable for handling pressures up to 150 psi. This nipple fitting meets American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) A733, ASTM A312, and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) B1.20.1 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).
Merit Brass manufactures pipe nipples and distributes pipe, valves, and fittings. The company, founded in 1937 and headquartered in Cleveland, OH, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard 9001.
