The water flow though a pipe is measured by using a mechanical flow meter. These work through positive displacement, where the volume of water flowing though in a given amount of time is measured. Domestic areas typically use a piston/rotary positive displacement meters or a nutating disk meter, whi

An American National standard taper pipe thread chart includes the nominal pipe size, outside diameter, threads per inch and the pitch of the thread. The chart on the Machining Products website also includes measures of the length and diameter for hand tight engagement, effective external thread, wr
