Cole-Parmer is your trusted source for quality threaded fittings and adapters. We carry NPT fittings (National Pipe Taper fittings), UNF fittings (Unified Fine Thread Fittings), some BSPT threaded adapters (British Standard Pipe Thread), and other threaded fittings. No matter the need, whether connecting equipment or instrumentation to a fluid line, whether a standard nylon or chemically resistant fluoropolymer or stainless steel, we can help you set up your fluid handling system with no leaks, flow restrictions or costly downtime. Our threaded fittings are rated for maximum pressures starting at 150 psi for polyethylene up to 7,500 psi for stainless steel. Cole-Parmer's NPT fitting range includes straight and reducing female couplings, female-to-male elbows, union female elbows, straight and reducing male nipples, reducing bushings, tees and pipe plugs. Cole-Parmer also offers a UNF fitting range that includes straight nipples, plugs, and NPT to UNF reducing bushings. We also offer some bulkhead threaded connectors, and common plastic and polymer pipe fittings are available in kits that make sure you have the right fitting on-hand when you need it.
Threaded fittings are also available to convert to threaded ports from hose barbed connectors for flexible tubing lines or compression nut fittings for rigid tubing lines.
Choose from a variety of materials, including brass, PTFE, high-density polyethylene (HDPE), PVDF, linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), polypropylene, nylon, PFA, PVC, and 316 stainless steel.
Cole-Parmer provides you with the information you need to select optimal threaded fittings for your needs. We provide the basic physical property information including temperature and pressure rating for each material formulation. Use our chemical resistance charts to help determine the fitting material with best chemical compatibility to your process. Our selection includes:

Female NPT Tee Fittings are three-way female threaded fittings. All threaded ports are the same size. Available in 3 materials in sizes from 1/8" to 1".
Female-Female-Male Right Angle Tee Connectors are available in nylon in either 1/8" x 1/8" x 1/8" or 3/8" x 3/8" x 3/8".
Male NPT Threaded Plugs are perfect for keeping contaminants from entering a port when not connected. Available in 7 different materials in sizes from 1/16" to 1". Male UNF Threaded Plugs
Female NPT to British Male Thread Adapters provide an easy solution to mate equipment with BSPP (British Standard Pipe Threaded) or BSPT (British Standard Pipe Tapered Threaded) ports to standard NPT terminations. Choose from adapters that convert from male BSP to female NPT, or male NPT ro female BSP. Adapters are available in brass and 316 stainless steel and are availabe in port sizes from 1/8" to 3/4".
Threaded Fitting Kits provide you with a wide range of fittings and the easy storage of a compartmentalized case to organize them. Kits are available in 4 materials and feature an assortment of elbows, tees, plugs, and nipples.BSPT Threaded Fitting Kits are also available.
Bulkhead Connectors feature female NPT connections to attach to tanks, bags, and other mass storage vessels to allow easy dispensing or controlled flow. They are available in nylon (no seal gasket), PVC (neoprene gasket), polypropylene (neoprene gasket), linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE, with EPDM gaskets), and PVDF (FKM gaskets). Sizes range from 1/8" female NPT x 5/8" OD to 3" female NPT to 4-3/8" OD.
Swivel Bulkhead Connectors are female NPT bulkhead connectors that feature an additional joint that swivels in socket for easier fit and use. Available in PVC in sizes from 1" to 3".
