The 3/4" taper NPT threads (ANSI B1.20.1)
are full cut and hot galvanized after cutting.
Color-coded end-cap thread protectors keep
the threads clean and sharp and also provide
instant trade size recognition.
RIGID is threaded on both ends, with a coupling applied to one end and a
thread protector to the other. The pitch of the threads conforms to the
American National Standard for pipe threads, general purpose (Inch),
ANSI/AMSE B1.20.1. Threads are protected after cutting by an application
of molten zinc. The quantity in primary bundles and master bundles conform
to the NEMA standard bundle quantity.
NPT- National Pipe Thread Taper- ANSI B1.20.1
NPT pipe threads - dimensions according ANSI/ASME B1.20.1
Common American National Standard Pipe Taper Threads
NPT - National Pipe Thread Taper
FPT - female (internal) National Pipe Taper threads
MPT - male (external) National Pipe Taper threads
NPTF - Dryseal American National Standard Taper Pipe Thread (ANSI B1.20.3)
For NPT threads a sealant compound or Teflon tape must be used for a leak-free seal. For NPTF no sealant is needed for a sealing.
Characteristics of NPT (also known as ANSI/ASME B1.20.1 Pipe Threads, General Purpose):
tapered thread 1o 47'
truncation of roots and crests are flat
60o thread angle
pitch is measured in threads per inch
Note! Pipe sizes do not refer to any physical dimensions. The outside diameter of a pipe or fitting must be measured and compared to a table for size identification. A 3/4" NPT pipe thread has an outside diameter - OD - of 1.050 inches.
Each thread size has a defined number of threads per inch - TPI, or pitch. The 3/4" NPT pipe thread has 14 threads per inch. Both the TPI and OD of the thread are required for positive identification of thread size because more than one size have the same TPI.
1) The taper is 1/16 inch in an inch, which is the same as 3/4 inch in a foot (angle 1o 47')
NPT threads are not interchangeable with NPS - National Pipe Straight - threads.
NPT threads may look similar to ISO 7/1 threads. However, ISO and NPT threads should not be mixed. ISO threads have 55o taper angle versus 60o for NPT. The NPT root and crest configurations are also different from ISO. For ISO threads pitch is usually measured in millimeters (may be expressed in Inch). The pitch are different.
