I just work on the engineering company that specialize in water piping. I am confuse about the term of nipple. What is the different between Single Nipple, Double Nipple, and Pipe Nipple? Hope somebody can help. Thanks

It's really easy:

Single nipple: One end with threads (grooves): Google Image Search (NSFW, due to unintended results)

Double nipple: Both ends with threads (grooves): Google Image Search (NSFW, due to unintended results)

And pipe nipples are like double nipples: Google Image Search

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks a lot. But you mean for double nipple they have a bolt in the middle between the groove? $\endgroup$ – dsc81 Apr 18 at 1:32
