Hex head plug for closing and terminating the end of a pipe
Male National Pipe Taper (NPT) threads for use with female threaded pipes
Made of stainless steel 304 for greater strength than 302 grade steel
Hexagonal head for increased leverage and use with a wrench
Conforms to standards ISO 49 and ANSI B1.20.1 for quality assurance
The Merit Brass square hex head plug is a class 150 stainless steel 304 cast pipe fitting with male National Pipe Taper (NPT) threads for closing the end of a pipe. The plug inserts into female pipes or fittings and connects with NPT threads, which create a tighter seal than straight threads, and it has a hexagonal head for increased leverage and use with a wrench during installation and disassembly. Made of stainless steel 304, the lower carbon content of this plug ensures higher corrosion resistance than 302 grade steel. This class 150 fitting meets standards ISO 49 and ANSI B1.20.1 for quality assurance. Class is a standard relating to tolerance, construction, dimension, and wall thickness, but it is not a direct measurement of maximum working pressure.
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. The company, family-owned since 1937 and headquartered in Cleveland, OH, distributes pipe fittings in the United States and Canada.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
What can you say about a pipe plug? Well, for one, I've seen plenty of pipe fittings with poorly cut threads that look like maybe too much speed and dull tooling caused them to be rough and choppy. Not on this fitting though! It is a nice piece of cast stainless steel with cleanly cut threads just like they used to be in the good old days!
Not much to say about a pipe plug, its exactly as described with clean cut threads and what appears to be a good quality casting. have had it in use on a marine engine cooling system for a few months with no issues.
A cheaper alternative to brass. But will resist corrosion just the same. I have replaced all galvonized fittings in my plumbing system with these stainless for half the cost of brass.
