Special End Finishes Available for Pipe Nipples

Depending on the piping system you are creating for various applications, you may be required to use different types of end finishes on pipe nipples or fittings. Not all pipe nipples or pipe fittings are the same and all serve different purposes. Variations of special end finishes available for pipe nipples are:

  • Straight pipe thread
  • Roller cut 
  • Reamed and chamfered nipple ends
  • Square cut to central access
  • Victaulic cut grooved finish
  • Angle cut end on nipple
  • Tapered end pipe thread

What special end finish pipe fitting do you need?

The type of pipe connections needed varies from job to job. Some piping systems may require a square cut pipe nipple whereas others may require an angle cut pipe nipple.

All of these questions can be answered based on the application at hand, as well as the material or substance being transferred through the piping system.
