Q."Will IPS-sized fittings work with NPT pipe thread?" A. Yes. The abbreviation IPS normally refers to iron pipe size. When we use the term 'IPS-sized' we are referring to pipes with NPT threads. NPT is the abbreviation for National Pipe Thread Tapered. This is the common thread standard used in the United States for galvanized, black, brass, stainless steel, PVC, ABS or other materials to connect threaded pipes, fittings and valves in plumbing. We offer more detailed information about NPT pipe threads here.
