British Standard Pipe Thread
BSP thread is a standard thread type used extensively across the globe for plumbing connections. The standard defines the number of threads per inch (pitch) as well as the angle that each thread is engineered to. BSP threads have rounded valleys and troughs (this is known as Whitworth type).
There are two types of BSP threads; Tapered (BSPT) and parallel (BSPP). Stattin Stainless stocks mostly the Tapered (BSPT) threaded fittings.
BSP Sizes are always in imperial measurements
Major diameter is slightly more than the actual outside diameter of the threads - it's the very tip of the peak of the thread. Minor diameter is the measurement of the trough, or the bottom, of the thread.
Major diameter minus minor diameter equals the thread height.
