The Merit Brass nipple is a schedule 40 welded stainless steel 304/304L pipe fitting with male National Pipe Taper (NPT) threads for connecting and extending female threaded pipes. The fitting has NPT threads for creating tighter seals than straight threads. Made of stainless steel 304L, the lower carbon content of this pipe fitting ensures corrosion resistance. It meets both 304 steel strength standards and 304L extra-low carbon standards for quality assurance.
Pipe fittings are components used for connecting, terminating, controlling flow, and changing the direction of piping in many different industries. When purchasing pipe fittings, consider the application, as this will affect material type, shape, size and required durability. Fittings are available threaded or unthreaded, in many shapes, styles, sizes, and schedules (pipe wall thickness).
Merit Brass manufactures pipe nipples following ISO 9001 standards for quality assurance. Family-owned since 1937, the company is based in Cleveland, OH. Merit Brass distributes pipe fittings to the United States and Canada.

Used for homebrew application. It's definitely useable for homebrewing since its a zero pressure application and will thread into a 1/2" NPT female connector, but the threading is the cheapest machining I've seen on any SS part- with a ton of burrs and several cuts on my fingers to show for it... these were at 89 cents/ea when I picked them up, so I can't complain.. but I would have been disappointed at the $2-$5 range I have seen them selling at more recently.
These are exactly as I expected for the cost. They are not perfect, but the threading is more than adequate, and work on all the fittings I've tried them on so far. You do see some tooling marks, but they do not hinder the performance of the fitting itself. I can't believe these are this cheap with shipping, I can't find these locally for even twice this cost.
It fit my 1/2 in fitting perfectly. It had a couple burrs on the ends, just picked then off and was careful when tightening.
