Hexagonal nipples NPS 1/8″-3″ ASME B16.11
CONCEPT OF HEX NIPPLE
Hexagonal Nipple is a commonly used accessory in industrial pipe connection. Commonly used are equal-diameter hexagonal Nipple and different-diameter hexagonal Nipple, the middle is a hexagonal section, and the two sides are threaded. HEX Nipple is produced according to GB/T 14383 and ASME 16.11 production standards and BS3799 standards.
ASME B16.11: This standard specifies pressure and temperature ratings, dimensions, tolerances, standards, and materials for socket-welded and threaded fittings. Manufacturers and purchasers can coordinate the manufacture of forged and rolled special sizes, shapes, etc. material for pipe fittings. Criteria for selecting fitting styles and materials suitable for use with a particular fluid are outside the scope of this standard.
