Brass nipples are plumbing fitting designed with a short pipe that has male threads on each end. They are commonly used as adapters for straight connection from one pipe to another. Besides, it is worth noting that nipples
are recommended for low-pressure plumbing systems.To design nipples, the manufacturer uses short pieces of brass pipes and creates the preferred threads. Note that nipples are also available in welded and seamless designs. Nipple fittings can be designed into several categories. The commonest type of nipple is the running nipple model, also known as closed nipple. This type of nipple is a short piece of pipe featuring male threads on each end. However, there is a short unthreaded section between the two threaded ends. If the threads run from one end to another, the nipple is referred to as a running nipple. Other types of nipples include hexagonal nipples, reducing nipples, hose nipples, and welding nipples. To see the full list of all nipples you can order in our catalog, make sure to visit our site.
