As a manufacturer of pipe nipples, we are experienced in producing high quality connections. Merit Brass' manufacturing process incorporates the principles of 5S and lean manufacturing. Our talented manufacturing team continuously innovates processes and advances our technological capabilities with quality and delivery in mind.

Associates have co-designed and developed s-head threading technology and have worked diligently to optimize Merit Brass' CNC machining capabilities. We understand that your needs can be unique, which is why we have the flexibility to provide custom piping and pipe nipple fabrication.

Merit Brass can customize to any length or per print needs. We offer a wide array of threaded and machined ends in:

Types of Threaded Ends:

  • NPSL (National Pipe Straight Locknut)
  • NPSM (National Pipe Straight Mechanical)
  • NPT (National Pipe Thread)
  • BSPT (British Standard Pipe Thread)
  • And more...


Types of Machined Ends: 

  • Plain Roller Cut - the end is cut with a roller pipe cutter; no additional machining is performed
  • Threaded   
  • Square Ream - a machining process that cuts the end of the pipe on a 90 degree angle to the wall
  • Ream & Chamfer - a machining process that cuts the end of the pipe on an angle (usually 38 to 42 degrees) to the wall
  • Roll Groove - a piece of pipe is cold formed to make a circular and extensive groove in the pipe; a groove is created without removing any pipe material
  • Cut Groove - a groove is performed by turning the pipe on a lathe, removing metal from the outside surface of the pipe to create the groove

  • OD & ID Machining - per print only
