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.
Top Customer Reviews
Here are the full set of dimensions measured on a digital caliper for this pipe (in inches): OD=0.404; ID=0.258; Max thread OD=0.411; Min thread OD=0.390
By comparison, I bought a Watts brand LFA-717 nipple at a local big box store. Its dimensions are: OD=0.380; ID=0.250; Max thread OD=0.400; Min thread OD=0.380
I dont know what the official specification of OD and ID of Sched40 NPT 1/8" is supposed to be, or what tolerances are allowed, but this nipple would not make a good seal (replacing a part on my air compressor), regardless of how much tape I used or how hard I tried to make it work. The diameter of the threads was just too large. The Watts part that I purchased locally worked fine.
