What is a NPT fitting?

NPT stands for National Pipe Taper — pipe and fittings have a tapered thread profile. The tapered thread seals use an interference fit between the male and female threads. NPT fittings should never bottom out in assembly. By hand assembly only, the pipe or fitting should only screw in part way before jamming.

Will MIP work with NPT?

Most pipe thread types are not interchangeable. NPT, MIP, and FIP work together but do not mate with any other types.

How tight should NPT fittings be?

As a general guideline, after hand-tight engagement, tighten 2-3 full turns for sizes up to 1 inches for NPT fittings. You should have between 3.5 and 6 engaged threads. Any number outside of this range may indicate either under or over tightening of the joint or out of tolerance threads.

What is difference between MIP and NPT?

As previously mentioned, NPT indicates the defined standard from ANSI – but many people use MPT/MIP and FPT/FIP interchangeably. MPT stands for Male Pipe Thread and MIP stands for Male Iron Pipe which both indicate a male fitting with NPT threads.
