How do you measure BSP fittings?

How to Measure Your BSP Fittings

  1. Measure the outer diameter (OD) of the thread (in inches)
  2. Then subtract 25% from this (¼ inch)
  3. You’ll then need to make sure it is a BSP fitting so by counting the threads on your coupling, perhaps only just over ¼”, you can just multiply this by four to find the threads per inch.

Are all pressure washer connectors the same?

What size are pressure washer fittings?

Small (1/4″) hoses are the most common. They are designed for consumer-grade electric and small gas power washers with pressure ratings up to 3,200 psi. Mid-sized (5/16”) hoses are the least common. They are rated for prosumer-grade gas pressure washers that can withstand pressures between 2,700-3,600 psi.

Are BSP and BSPT compatibility?

The BSPT (tapered) male will mate with a BSPT (tapered) female, or a BSPP (parallel) female. The BSPT connector is similar to, but not interchangeable with, the NPTF connector. The thread pitch is different in most cases, the thread angle is 55° instead of the 60° angle found on NPTF threads.

What sizes do BSP connectors come in?

Typical sizes and uses are : 1/4 Inch BSP – Compressed air connectors. 3/8 Inch BSP – Central heating oil line connectors, some European toilet cistern fill valves (not common in UK). 1/2 Inch BSP – Bathroom basin taps and kitchen sink taps, radiator connections, shower hoses, old outside tap outlets, toilet cistern fill / float valves.

What is the working pressure of a 3/8 BSPP adapter?
