Pipe Taps are high-speed cutting tools that are used to cut internal threads in pipes or pipe fittings that will provide an effective seal when mated with the appropriate component.
When mated, pipe threads form a pressure-tight seal that allows the flow of liquids, gases, steam, and hydraulic fluid, without leaking.
Haas offers various types of pipe thread taps that are designed to form a seal with or without thread sealants. Both NPT and NPS taps have the same thread angle, shape, and pitch. However, NPT threads are tapered and NPS threads are straight. Both the NPT and NPS threads have a 60° included angle.
