Product details

Male NPT nipple

male niplepple

NPT nipple

Male Thread

The stainless steel nipple has male National Pipe Taper (NPT) threads for connecting to female threaded pipes, creating a tighter seal than straight threads. The surface of NPT thread is smooth and without burrs. It has good sealing performance and is very easy to install and disassemble.

304 Stainless Steel

The cast pipe nipple is made of 304 stainless steel, which has low temperature resistance, high temperature ductility and low magnetic permeability. The hexagonal shape allows for increased leverage during installation and disassembly with a wrench.

Tip: For better sealing, we recommend using Teflon tape for pipe fittings.

Advantages of Stainless Nipple

304 Stainless Steel with great resistance to corrosion(Brass is too flimsy and will broke in use), which can be connected to copper, brass, plastic, aluminum, and welded steel.

Available for full range of liquids and gas, water, air and some corrosive liquid.

hex nipple


Hex pipe nipple fitting is small and easy to install. Good Corrosion resistance performance makes it widely used in many fields such as hydrant pipe, air compressor, laundry faucet, extended shower-head and hose, natural gas line and irrigation applications, etc. Recommended to use Teflon tape for the best sealing effect.


About thread

Thread is generally divided into straight thread and tapered thread. If the thread is not matched properly, the situation as shown in the picture will appear, resulting in poor sealing performance, or even unable to screw in. Please confirm what you are needing before you order.

    Good qualityThese Hex nipples are not 3/8 as stated.Update: Originally gave 1 star because I thought I received poorly made/sized product. I have changed to 5 because nipple seems to be well made. Does not feel flimsy nor cheap. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize the 3/8 OD mentioned for this product was not a 3/8 OD compression I needed. My mistake and not the seller’s.

    Quality well builtThere is nothing much to dislike about this product, in fact, compared to my previous purchases on Amazon from other suppliers. This Supplier delivers a quality product and I would highly recommend buying from this supplier when it comes to NPT Fitting supply.

    Excellent QualityI’m using these 1-inch connectors to join a whole-house filter to a large floor-standing carbon filter and then to a floor-standing water softener tank. Unfortunately, the first stock fittings were not true plumbing increasing-larger threaded connectors. When I had it threaded with typical tape it leaked. Using this new correctly threaded fitting, using tape and thread dope (Tru-Blue) it sealed perfectly. Another advantage with this fitting it has a handy center design area to use your pliers or wrench to easily tighten the fitting to the correct torque for your project. No Leak!
