BS 21 - Taper
BS 2779 - Straight
This is a very common connection in Europe. See variations below.
Stocked in 316 Stainless Steel material.
There are two types of BSP connections, a BSP Taper and a BSP Parallel.
The taper version is very much like the NPT
fitting where the sealing surface (for pressure) is the threads. The
Parallel type has several variations. First a flat face, an internal cone,
and yet another with an external cone. Threads are straight threads which
do not seal; the sealing surface is an o'ring, dowty seal, some other
form of gasket, or on the cone if it is the cone variation. Care must
be taken to get the right one.
BSPs start at 1/8" and go very large, over many inches. We stock
up to 3/4". Be careful and not confuse the stated size with the actual
measurement of the threads. For example a 1/2" actually has an OD
(outside dimension) of 21mm. We make sizes up to 2".
Connections to BSPs available at PressureLinks
