Pneumatic Thread & Tube Reference

We have posted a new pneumatic thread reference.  This thread reference is built around the threads commonly used in industrial pneumatics in both american standard NPT and metric threads.

Additionally, the thread references many ways to transition from metric to inch and vice versa with readily available fittings.  For example:

  • Use Unifit - Threads into NPT, Rc, and G
  • 5/16" OD is the same as 8mm OD but 5/16" OD fittings are available in NPT threads. 
If you work with pneumatics and especially if you work in an environment with a mixture of NPT, Rc, and G threads then you will most likely find this tool useful.
