Threaded Fitting Sizes and Dimensions

Calculate the correct thread pitch and nominal bore size.

If there are six whole threads within the N Distance and if N =- 3/4″ then the calculation is 6 divided by 3/4 which equals 8 TPI (TPI = Thread per Inch)


Example: If the above fitting measurement at X is 1-7/8″ (47.6mm), then the NB Size is 1-1/2″ (38mm)
