What does R, Rp, Rc, G threads mean ?

Published 10 December 2015 in

R, Rp & Rc threads are taken from BS EN 10226-3:2005 pipe threads where pressure-tight joints are made on the threads.

R, Rp & Rc are the same as BSPT (tapered thread).

G threads are taken from BS EN ISO 228-2:2003 pipe threads where pressure-tight joints are not made on the threads. The pressure tight joint is achieved by the compression of a soft material (such as an o-ring seal or washer) between the end face of the male thread and a socket or nipple face, with a tightening of a back nut.

G is the same as BSPP (parallel thread).
