In an order of my regular client,he requested thread hole in the blind flanges.And the type of thread is WHITW.As follow:BLIND FLANGE/C PN16 WITH 1/2″WHITW.THREAD HOLE H445/DIN2527 RST37-2.
So i searched some common thread types and made a simple classification.
NPT,PT,G are all pipe threads.
1.NPT is the abbreviation of national (American) pipe thread,which is a 60-degree taper pipe thread of the US standard for use in North America.
2.PT is the abbreviation of pipe thread,which is a 55 degree sealed tapered pipe thread.It belongs to WHITW thread and is used in Europe and commonwealth countries.Commonly PT thread is applied to the pipe industry of water and gas,the taper is 1:16.
