I have added it to our table of part numbers online along with a digital download line drawing.
Q Is this product 3A Certified?A The design of this fitting does not meet 3A Specification Standards. Any fitting with threads like this one cannot be considered a 3A Sanitary.A The design of this fitting does not meet 3A Specification Standards. Any fitting with threads like this one cannot be considered a 3A Sanitary. 3A requires fittings to be easily cleaned and maintained. The thread design does not allow for that according to the specification.
Q What's the difference between NPT & NPS threadsA
NPS = National Pipe Straight
NPT = National Pipe Thread
Both NPT and NPS have the same thread angle, shape, and pitch (threads per inch). However, NPT threads are tapered and NPS threads are straight (parallel). Both threads have a 60° included angle and have flat peaks and valleys.
Tapered Pipe Thread is commonly found on ends of pipe, nipples and fittings (i.e. couplings, elbows, tees, etc.). Note: Sharply angled threads are very critical to joint being tight with no leaks. Thread sealant or tape is typically required to complete the seal. Straight Pipe Threads need a gasket or O-ring to create a seal.
While NPT and NPS threads will engage, they do not seal properly with each other.
Q Do you offer different clamp x NPT size combinations like 1 1/2" x 2"?A Different size combinations are available however these items are not stocked and the typical lead time for these products is about 1 - 2 weeks. Please call us for special orders and we'll let you know what we can do for timing and pricing. Thanks!
