About the product

In piping and piping construction, a nipple is a fitting consisting of a short piece of pipe, usually with external threads at both ends, for connecting two other fittings. In piping and piping construction, a nipple is a fitting consisting of a short piece of pipe, usually with external threads at both ends, for connecting two other fittings.

To loosen a closed nipple, you will need to grab the threaded end with a pipe wrench, but doing this will damage the threads, requiring the nipple to be replaced, or using a pipe wrench called a nipple wrench (or inner tube wrench). The inner tube must be tightened using a special tool. Remove the pipe and release it without damaging the threads. If the ends are two different sizes, it is called a reducer or unequal nipple.

They may have a hexagonal section in the middle for gripping with a wrench (sometimes called a “hex nipple”), or they may simply be made from a short piece of pipe (a “barrel nipple” or “barrel nipple”). A “tight nipple” has no unthreaded areas. When screwed between two female threaded connections, very little of the nipple is exposed.

The material of the plumbing pipe nipple is also related to the material of the nipple, such as plastic material, stainless steel material, copper material, or iron coated pipe material. Stainless steel pipe fittings are generally of the highest quality, as they are rust resistant and durable.

However, the problem is that the price is a little high. Copper and iron plated pipe nipples are normal.

Specifications

The specifications of sanitary pipe nipples are usually determined based on various interface sizes. There are two types of pipe nipples: 1/2 and 3/4. Plumbing pipe nipples have different interface sizes, so when purchasing a plumbing pipe nipple, please be sure that it is compatible with your water pipe, etc., to avoid problems with returns or exchanges due to non-conformance with specifications.

Open type

In an open water pipe connection, both ends of the water pipe connection are separated into a male end and a female end. Generally, the male end with a pin shape on one end is called the male head, and the male end with a hole shape on the other end is called the female head.

When connected and used, when the jacket of the female head of the water pipe fitting is pushed to the opposite side, the male head will come out due to the rolling of the steel ball inside the water pipe fitting. This way, there are no valves in the male and female parts to allow fluid to escape

Types of plumbing pipe nipples

Closed type

There is a thimble and a spring inside the closed water pipe joint.. When not in use, the ends of the water pipe fitting can be pressed against the pipe by the action of the thimble and spring, impeding the flow of liquid. After connecting the water pipe, the thimble returns to its original position under the action of a spring, allowing the fluid to circulate.

 

Use of the product

In piping and piping construction, a nipple is a fitting consisting of a short piece of pipe, usually with external threads at both ends, for connecting two other fittings. Aluminum pipe nipples are widely used in hydraulic and pneumatic systems, piping applications, and the oil and gas industry. They are known for their versatility and their ability to connect two pipes, fittings, or devices of different sizes and materials. Pipe nipples are pipe fittings used in a variety of industrial tasks, such as:

Manufacturing Standards

Left and right steel nipples are available in standard and extra-strength sizes from 1 to 8 inches to 4 inches NPS (8 to 50 DN), and lengths of 4 inches (102 mm) and 6 inches (152 mm). Nipples are available in stock from 1 to 8 inches NPS (6 to 200 DN) in diameter and nearly 12 NPS (300 DN) in length. Nipples are available in stock from 1 to 8 inches NPS (6 to 200 DN) in diameter and nearly 12 NPS (300 DN) in length.

Pipe nipples are manufactured in accordance with specific standards to ensure their quality and compatibility with various applications. Round nipples, ranging from 1/8″ to 4″, and hexagon nipples, from 1/8″ to 2″, adhere to the BS3799 standard. Swaged nipples, within the 1/8″ to 2″ size range, comply with SH/T3419 and MSS SP 95-2006. These products encompass a wide range of materials, including brass, stainless steel, carbon steel, aluminum, and alloys like monel, nickel, inconel, and hastelloy. Stainless steel pipe nipples come in various grades, such as 202, 304, 304L, 316, and more, while copper nickel pipe nipples include CuNi10Fe1Mn and CuNi30Mn1Fe grades. These manufacturing standards ensure consistent quality and dimensional accuracy across different types and sizes of pipe nipples, meeting the diverse needs of industries like construction, plumbing, and manufacturing.
