Product Description

The Merit Brass union is a class 150 stainless steel 316 cast pipe fitting with female National Pipe Taper (NPT) threads for connecting and extending two male threaded pipes. The union has three pieces and includes a threaded connection that can be screwed or unscrewed to connect or disconnect pipes more easily than couplings. It has NPT threads on both ends for connecting to pipes with tighter seals than straight threads. This union is made of stainless steel 316, which is higher strength and more corrosion resistant than stainless steel 304. This class 150 fitting meets standards ANSI B1.20.1 and ISO 49 for quality assurance. Class is a standard relating to tolerance, construction, dimension, and wall thickness, but it is not a direct measurement of maximum working pressure.

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. The company, family-owned since 1937 and headquartered in Cleveland, OH, distributes pipe fittings in the United States and Canada.

Stainless Steel 316 Cast Pipe Fitting, Union, Class 150, 1/2" NPT Female

The real world test of a union is whether it leaks. The mating surfaces of the two halves are highly polished and mesh perfectly. I installed this one in the exposed plumbing for a master bath urinal (fairly close color to the adjoining chrome pipes), and it's been leak free. For a leak-free joint used this stuff on all male & female threads: Rectorseal 23631 1/4 Pint Brush Top T Plus 2 Pipe Thread SealantThis union is very high quality, of the best stainless (type 316) made for plumbing, and leak free..

Of course, made in China for those wondering. I would definitely not describe them as "thick", but I was only familiar with forged unions, which make these look like toys. The appearance and fit, however, are satisfactory. I had a very light duty use for these, so I was mainly interested in resistance to corrosion, so only time will tell. My main concern was their magnetic properties when I tested them, expecting 316 stainless steel to be non-magnetic. However, I have read that it is possible that cast fittings can indeed be magnetic, so only a metallurgist would know for certain.

This is an excellent stainless steel union as it is very thick and sturdy where the threads are very clean and the interior mating surfaces are polished. It measures 1 5/8" long and 1 5/8" in diameter. I'm very happy with it!

Had a bear of a time getting these not to leak at the union. I feel like I would have been better served by one with tighter tolerances, but the price was too good to pass on, so I gave it a shot and eventually got it to work.
