This forged stainless steel 316/316L cap is a class 3000 pipe fitting with female National Pipe Taper (NPT) threads for closing off and terminating the end of a male pipe. The cap fits over male pipes and connects with NPT threads for creating a tighter seal than straight threads. The class 3000 fitting is forged for durability, and is made from stainless steel 316/316L for corrosion resistance. Class is a standard relating to tolerance, construction, dimension, and wall thickness, but it is not a direct measurement of maximum working pressure. TThis fitting meets standards ASTM A182, ASME SA182, and ANSI B16.11 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).
