The BSP Half Socket in stainless steel is a versatile and essential component in piping systems, designed to connect two BSP (British Standard Pipe) threaded ends together in a secure and leak-proof manner. This fitting features a female BSP thread on one end and a plain socket on the other, allowing it to be easily screwed onto a male threaded pipe or fitting to create a solid connection.

Crafted from high-quality stainless steel, this half socket offers exceptional corrosion resistance, mechanical strength, and durability. Stainless steel is particularly well-suited for environments where hygiene, reliability, and resistance to corrosion are critical, such as in food processing, pharmaceutical manufacturing, chemical industries, and marine applications. Its inert nature ensures compatibility with a wide range of fluids and protects against contamination, making it suitable for sanitary and high-purity applications.

The precision machining of the threads and the smooth interior of the socket ensure a tight and secure fit when connected to compatible male threaded fittings or pipes. This secure connection is essential for maintaining system integrity, preventing leaks, and ensuring efficient fluid flow. The robust construction of stainless steel also contributes to the longevity and reliability of the half socket, even under demanding operational conditions.

Features & Benefits

  • High Corrosion Resistance: Made from stainless steel, offering excellent resistance to corrosion and rust. This makes it suitable for use in corrosive environments, including marine, chemical processing, and outdoor applications.
  • BSP Threading: Features BSP (British Standard Pipe) threads, ensuring compatibility and easy connection with other BSP-threaded components. This standardization allows for reliable and leak-free joints.
  • Socket Design: The half socket has a socket end for easy insertion of pipes or fittings, facilitating quick assembly and disassembly in piping systems. It provides a secure and stable connection without the need for welding.
  • Durable Construction: Stainless steel construction provides high strength and durability, allowing the half socket to withstand high pressure, temperature variations, and mechanical stress without deforming or failing.
  • Versatile Application: Suitable for various industrial and plumbing applications where a secure and corrosion-resistant connection is required. It is commonly used in pipelines for fluid and gas transfer in industries such as oil and gas, petrochemicals, and food processing.


BSP (British Standard Pipe) fittings are used in a wide range of applications due to their standardized thread forms, which ensure compatibility, reliability, and ease of installation. Some of the primary applications for BSP fittings include:

  • Plumbing Systems: BSP fittings are extensively used in residential, commercial, and industrial plumbing systems for connecting pipes, faucets, valves, and fixtures in water supply and drainage systems.
  • Heating and Cooling Systems: These fittings are commonly used in HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems to connect piping for hot water, steam, and cooling systems.
  • Oil and Gas Industry: In the oil and gas industry, BSP fittings are used in pipelines, refineries, and drilling rigs to connect pipes, valves, and other equipment, ensuring secure and leak-proof connections.
  • Pneumatic Systems: In pneumatic systems, BSP fittings connect air lines, valves, actuators, and other components involved in the automation and control processes of various industrial applications.
  • Agriculture: In agricultural applications, BSP fittings are used in irrigation systems, sprayers, and other equipment that requires durable and secure pipe connections.
