Find pipe thread data on the data tables and explanations available on the website of the Plumbing Supply Group, LLC. The company provides data on male and female pipe threads and a glossary of commonly used pipe thread acronyms.
The Engineering ToolBox and Maryland Metrics are two organizations that have charts showing pipe thread sizes on their websites. Common American national standard pipe taper threads are the NPT and NPTF, says The Engineering ToolBox.
Size six ear gauges are considered to be larger than average. Most earlobes are initially pierced with an 18- or 20-gauge needle. Gauge sizes typically range between size 20 and 00, with 00 being the largest.
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
National Pipe Thread Taper tap drill sizes range from 0.242 inches to 3.243 inches, but pipe thread tap drill sizes vary widely depending on the type of thread to be cut. Some common pipe thread tap drill sizes are 0.438, 0.562, and 1.156, 1.50 and 2.22 inches.
Gauge, when applied to sheet metal, is used to determine the thickness of a single piece of sheet metal, with lower numerical values indicative of increasing levels of thickness. There are a number of standard gauge measurements in use, each with slightly different standard thickness.
Modern cars use electric temperature gauges to keep track of radiator and engine temperature. They operate like a voltmeter, with a special hairpin-like assembly opening and closing to create an electrical circuit. Old cars used a Bourdon Tube, which is a mechanical temperature gauge.
A pressure gauge allows a fluid to enter from the item or equipment being measured and reacts by moving a calibrated rod inside it. The pressure can be correctly read when the rod has moved to its maximum position.
There are online calculators to find the volume of a pipe on nCalculators.com and HandyMath.com, as of 2015. Both websites display the volume of a pipe in different units of measurement.
