Lead Free Brass Close Nipples
Lead-free brass replaces the lead with silicon, bismuth or mixed copper alloys to ensure safe potable drinking water in accordance with the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act. These nipples are a measured short piece of pipe with NPT male pipe threads at both ends used to connect two female threaded pipes or fittings. The length of the nipple is specified by the overall length including the threads. Brass nipples are best known for their incredible strength and excellent ductility (measure of a metal's ability to withstand tensile stress) in high temperatures. Brass nipples are commonly used in plumbing applications and hot water distribution lines. Brass features great corrosion resistance from salt water, acids, minerals, and peaty soils contained in water. Brass is a soft metal that is easy to install and creates a tight seal. It offers many of the same advantages of copper, but brass provides a heavier wall.
