Pipe Threading

One of the many services offered by Detroit Nipple Works is pipe threading and cutting. When it comes to threading there are many aspects you should know about the process and what constitutes a good thread. The purpose of threading pipe is to provide a good seal for pipes that will be transporting things such as liquids, gas, hydraulic fluids and other content.

When talking about pipe threading there are many keywords that often come up that you should probably be aware of. NPT which stands for National Pipe Thread Tapered and NPTF which is National Pipe Thread Fine or Fuel are just a few of the key terms when speaking about pipe threading. NPT is the main industry standard for pipe threading.

Types of Pipe Threading

Threads are made to match with other threads of the same type. Different regions produce a different type of threads. For instance, here in America, the American National V-Thread is the most popular. Other types are the Square Frac Iron, Buttress Jacking Thread and the Round Triangular Thread. Pipe threading is usually tapered or straight. Usually, tapered provides a much better seal to prevent leaks.
