About Black Pipe Schedule 80 Nipples - Made in The USA

Ward Manufacturing nipples and fittings are Made in The USA and are a trusted source for carbon welded, seamless and stainless steel pipe nipples for the industrial pipe-valve-fittings (PVF) market. Ward Nipples (formerly Wisconsin Nipple) also offers a complete line of quality nipples for sprinkler and plumbing applications. They have been cutting and threading pipe and nipples since 1950. These Schedule 80 extra heavy duty black meets or exceeds ASTM and ANSI Standards. We stock them from 1/8" through 4" diameters and are available in lengths up to 12 inches. Black pipe applications are for air, natural gas, non-potable water, oil and steam. These class 300 nipples also have a protective coating.

Schedule 80 black pipe nipples are heavy-duty fittings that are designed to withstand high pressure and harsh environments in plumbing systems. Made from durable black steel and conforming to Schedule 80 specifications, these pipe nipples offer exceptional strength and reliability. In this article, we will explore the features, benefits, and common uses of schedule 80 black pipe nipples, highlighting their importance in demanding plumbing applications.

  1. Superior Strength: Schedule 80 black pipe nipples are constructed with thicker walls compared to Schedule 40 fittings, providing increased strength and resistance to high pressure. This makes them ideal for applications that require enhanced durability and reliability.

  2. High-Pressure Capability: Due to their thicker walls, schedule 80 black pipe nipples are capable of handling higher pressure levels than Schedule 40 counterparts. They are commonly used in plumbing systems that involve heavy-duty water supply, industrial processes, or applications where elevated pressure is a concern.

  3. Corrosion Resistance: The black coating on the surface of these pipe nipples provides corrosion resistance, ensuring long-lasting performance even in harsh environments. This makes them suitable for outdoor installations or applications where exposure to moisture and corrosive substances is a factor.

  4. Wide Range of Sizes: Schedule 80 black pipe nipples are available in a range of sizes, accommodating various plumbing system requirements. Common sizes range from 1/8 inch to 6 inches in diameter, allowing for versatility in different plumbing projects.

  5. Threaded Ends: Like other pipe nipples, schedule 80 black pipe nipples feature threaded ends that allow for easy connection to other fittings or pipes. The threaded ends ensure a secure and leak-free connection, eliminating the need for additional sealing materials.

  6. Versatile Applications: Schedule 80 black pipe nipples are suitable for a wide range of plumbing applications, including industrial processes, high-pressure water supply systems, chemical handling, and oil or gas transportation. Their strength and durability make them indispensable in demanding environments.

  7. Compatible with Various Pipe Materials: These pipe nipples can be used with different pipe materials, including steel, iron, copper, and PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride). This compatibility allows for seamless integration into different plumbing systems, providing flexibility and convenience during installations.

  8. Safety and Reliability: Schedule 80 black pipe nipples are designed to meet stringent safety standards and regulations. Their robust construction and ability to withstand high pressure ensure the safety and reliability of plumbing systems, minimizing the risk of leaks or failures.

Common Uses of Schedule 80 Black Pipe Nipples:

  1. Industrial Applications: Schedule 80 black pipe nipples find extensive use in industrial settings, such as manufacturing plants, chemical processing facilities, and refineries. They are suitable for carrying various fluids, including water, chemicals, and oils, in demanding and high-pressure environments.

  2. High-Pressure Water Supply Systems: These pipe nipples are commonly used in high-pressure water supply systems, such as those found in commercial buildings, hotels, and large-scale irrigation projects. Their strength and resistance to pressure make them an ideal choice for ensuring reliable water distribution.

  3. Oil and Gas Transportation: Schedule 80 black pipe nipples are employed in oil and gas pipelines, both for above-ground and buried applications. Their ability to handle high pressure and resistance to corrosion make them well-suited for these critical energy transportation systems.

  4. HVAC Systems: These pipe nipples are utilized in HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) systems that involve high-pressure water circulation for heating or cooling purposes. They can withstand the demands of hydronic heating and cooling systems in commercial buildings.

Schedule 80 black pipe nipples are robust, durable, and designed for demanding plumbing applications. Their superior strength, high-pressure capability, and corrosion resistance make them a perfect choice for the job.
