Pipe Threads, 60 deg, General Purpose
|Publication Date:||1 January 2006|
This Standard specifies the designations, dimensions, and tolerances and establishes a verification system for 60 deg included angle pipe threads. It is applicable for general purpose pipe and fitting connections. Where pressure-tight joints are required, it is intended that taper pipe threads conforming to this Standard be made up wrench-tight with a sealant. To prevent galling on certain piping materials such as stainless steel, the sealant should contain a lubricant.
Internal parallel (straight) pipe threads, series NPSC, are used with external taper pipe threads, series NPT. Internal taper pipe threads, series NPT, are used with external taper pipe threads, series NPT.
