Description
 
These 304 SS hex nipples are machined out of hex bar stock rather than cast blanks. The result is a much smoother fit and finish including the interior bore which is more sanitary than our budget cast hex nipples. We also cut our threads at a slightly smaller diameter than the NPT standard specifies which allows for a more full meshing with the female threaded counterparts. This exposes less internal threads to your liquid flow and overall makes for a more compact assembly once everything is threaded together. Please be aware that due to this undersizing of the tapered threads, the fit in SOME female threaded fittings may be a touch looser than you would expect where the hex makes contact with the female fitting just prior to the threads tightly meshing. In those cases, sealing will require one or two extra wraps of teflon tape than you would typically use on standard NPT fittings but it WILL seal. This occasional loose fit is a compromise in the design and not considered a defect.

Reviewer: Marc from WSMR, NM United States  
Clean and smooth on the inside. Took some extra tape to get a good seal, but no leaks!

4 of 5 Undersized is in the title December 16, 2021
Reviewer: Ron from Lancaster, CA United States  
This nipple is great for what it does, but it does require a lot of teflon tape in certain applications because it will bottom out without tightening. Still works.

5 of 5 perfect part 2 July 13, 2021
Reviewer: David Crowder from Boydton, VA United States  
The edge pick up dip tube and the hex nipple were the exact parts I needed to complete my boil kettle. When I did my first 5 gallon batch I'd forgotten to order these parts and with out them it's much harder to drain the wort. Thank you for the quality of your parts!
