Maximum Overall Length (OAL)
We can provide you with accurate pricing for any custom nipple up to 96.00" OAL.
Half nipples are measured from flange face to tube end.
Full nipples are measured from flange face to flange face.
Reducing nipples are measured from flange face to flange face, whichever flange has the larger Minimum OAL that will be the Minimum OAL.
Minimum Overall Length (OAL)
The table below shows the recommended minimum length to allow for attaching mounting nuts after welding the nipple to a plate of the same thickness as the tube OD.
Smaller lengths are possible by using bulkhead clamps (NW Nipples) or threaded studs (CF Nipples).
Tube OD is the Outside Diameter (OD) of the tubing, it is measured in inches.
Flange OD is the Outside Diameter (OD) of the flange, it is measured in inches.
