A King hose nipple fitting is a type of plumbing or piping fitting that is used to connect two sections of threaded pipes or hoses together. The King nipple pipe connector has a male threaded end on one side and a smaller diameter, unthreaded section in the middle, followed by another male threaded end on the other side. The unthreaded section in the middle is often referred to as the "nipple" and is typically used to provide additional support or reinforcement to the joint.

Applications of King Nipple Fittings

King Combination Nipples, also known as KC Nipples, are a versatile hose coupling for transitioning from a hose to pipe, equipment, valves, or strainers.

These king nipple fittings are mainly used for fluid service.


For the applications of king nipple pipe fitting, there are several points to note:

  • NPT, BSPT male thread is standard.

  • King combination nipples, a kind of threaded nipple fitting, are also available in a grooved end or with a beveled end for welding.

  • King nipple fittings are plated steel that prevents rust and weathering.

  • King nipple fittings can be installed directly on equipment and then slide the hose onto the stem to eliminate the need for a female swivel in permanent installations.

  • King nipple pipe fittings are recommended for low-pressure discharge and suction service for compatible liquids. They are not for compressible products such as air or nitrogen on sizes ¼" and above.

  • King nipple fittings are not recommended for steam.

Service for King Nipple Pipe Fitting

The working pressure may vary with the construction of the hose, the type of clamping system used and the application. Consult the factory for recommendations.

According to R.M.A.'s announcement on suction and discharge hoses, the connection length of any size hose should be tested at ½ times the working pressure and kept for 15 minutes without leakage or coupling movement.
