Update of standards for taper thread gauges (plugs and rings) and actual status - November 2011

IMPORTANT UPDATE RELEASE nr. 6 Taper thread gauges

A threaded pipe is a pipe with screw-threaded ends for assembly. The threaded pipes used in some plumbing installations for the delivery of gases or fluids under pressure have a threaded section that is slightly conical (in contrast to the cylindrical section commonly found on bolts and leadscrews). The seal provided by a threaded pipe joint depends upon the labyrinth seal created by the threads; upon a positive seal between the threads created by the deformation of the threads when they are tightened to the proper torque; and sometimes on the presence of a sealing coating, such as thread seal tape ("Teflon tape"), or a liquid or paste pipe sealant such as pipe dope. Accurate threads are known as "dry fit" or "dry seal" meaning that no sealant is required for a gas-tight seal. Such threads are needed where the sealant would contaminate or react with the media inside the piping (i.e. oxygen).
Dryseal pipe threads gauges ASME B1.20.5 have been recently added.
Updated formulas include now following standards:

NPT American Standard Pipe Taper Thread
NPSC American Standard Straight Coupling Pipe Thread
NPTR American Standard Taper Railing Pipe Thread
NPSM American Standard Straight Mechanical Pipe Thread
NPSL American Standard Straight Locknut Pipe Thread
NPTF American Standard Pipe Thread Tapered (Dryseal)
BSPP British Standard Pipe Thread Parallel
BSPT British Standard Pipe Thread Tapered
