What is a Barrel Nipple?

A Barrel Nipple is a fitting that is produced to allow different fittings to connect. Most of the time, the ends of the barrel nipple will be both male connections.

What material does a barrel nipple come in?

Barrel Nipples can come in various materials; our products come in 316/L. This means they are built entirely from stainless steel.

The L indicates that the steel contains a low carbon content. The benefit of this would be that it reduces the likelihood of rusting and enables the barrel nipples threads to have a sharper edge to stay secure for longer; the product becomes more durable.

What size does a barrel nipple come in?

We stock barrel nipples in sizes ranging from.

  • 1/8 of an inch to 4 inches in diameter
  • 51mm to 115mm in length.

What products are suitable for a barrel nipple to be fitted to?

We supply our barrel nipples to be compatible with high-pressure BSP fittings, high-pressure NPT fittings and 3000 LB socket weld fittings.

What kind of pressure and temperature can a barrel nipple withstand?

We stock barrel nipples with the intention of durability being a priority. Our products can stand a temperature of -252 C to 204 C. And in terms of pressure, they can stand up to 1000 bar of pressure.
