What is a copper tap connector in plumbing?
It is an accessory that allows the connection between a pipe and a valve or any equipment of an installation. It has the particularity of facilitating the disassembly of the valve or connected equipment if its replacement is necessary due to failure or other causes.
How to measure the copper tap connector?
For the female part, the inner diameter must be measured to determine the size or diameter of the tube to be used. For the nut part, the type and thread pitch must be determined. For both purposes, the most suitable are the gauges, both smooth and threaded. If gauges are not available, they can be measured with a caliper, taking the corresponding measurements, or by threading a valve or accessory whose thread pitch is already known.
How to identify the type of thread?
The type and pitch of thread must be determined. For this purpose, it is best to use thread gauges. If no gauges are available, you can measure with a caliper, taking the corresponding measurements, or by tapping a valve or fitting whose thread pitch is already known.
