The Metal Company BSP Thread Adapters

Connecting with clients for better efficiency is part of The Metal Company culture. It’s called connection perfection.

A core range of adapters have been developed by The Metal Company to make installation quick, easy, and cost effective. The Weld Nipple Adapter and Weld Socket Adapter are ideal for connecting stainless steel imperial tube to a BSP thread. Meanwhile, you can also adapt from a BSP thread to RJT, Tri Clover or Press-Fit connections with just one fitting.

BSP adapters include the following options:

  • BSP male nipple to butt-weld tube connection (Code Prefix: SWNA)
  • BSP female socket to butt-weld tube connection (Code Prefix: SWSA)
  • BSP male nipple to Tri Clover ferrule (Code Prefix: SWNAFER)
  • BSP female socket to Tri Clover ferrule (Code Prefix: SWSAFER)
  • BSP male nipple to RJT male part (Code Prefix: SWNAMP)
  • BSP male nipple to RJT weld liner and hex nut (Code Prefix: SWNAWL)
  • BSP male nipple to Press-Fit connection (Code Prefix: UMA)
  • BSP female socket to Press-Fit connection (Code Prefix: UFA)
