Product Description

The Merit Brass cap is a schedule 40 stainless steel 316/316L butt-weld pipe fitting used for closing the end of a pipe. The cap has a female butt-weld, beveled opening for welding to a male pipe or fitting with a smooth bore. Made of stainless steel 316/316L, the low-carbon content of this pipe fitting minimizes harmful carbide precipitation during welding, ensuring corrosion resistance. It meets both 316 steel strength standards and 316L extra-low carbon standards for quality assurance.

Pipe fittings are components used for connecting, terminating, controlling flow, and changing the direction of piping in many different industries. When purchasing pipe fittings, consider the application, as this will affect material type, shape, size and required durability. Fittings are available threaded or unthreaded, in many shapes, styles, sizes, and schedules (pipe wall thickness).

Merit Brass manufactures pipe nipples following ISO 9001 standards for quality assurance. Family-owned since 1937, the company is based in Cleveland, OH. Merit Brass distributes pipe fittings to the United States and Canada.
