The joint on the BM isnt under pressure but it seems the tapered thread is designed to be used with a standard parallel thread which according to international standards should be the thread on the BM.

Jointing threads: These are pipe threads where pressure-tightness is made through the mating of two threads together. They always use a taper male thread, but can have either parallel or taper female threads. (International standards require all female threads to be parallel.)

I've just read through this thread (no pun intended).

Confusing on a couple of points.

1) As I understand it the female thread on the 50l BM is a 3/4" BSPP (NOT BSPT) ? Will a 3/4" BSPT male fit in or does it have to be BSPP ?

2) I have a male 1/2" NPT (to 1/2" triclamp) that I want to fit to the outlet, and so I figure that I need a 3/4" BSPP male to 1/2" NPT female reducer. Really hard to find in stainless unless anybody can help ? I've seen some brass ones around but as I am all stainless seems a shame to have one part brass.

The other thing I read here is that 1/2" NPT thread is compatible with 1/2" BSPP thread. If that were the case, would a stainless 3/4" BSPP male to 1/2" BSPP female also do the trick ? They are alot easier to find.

Ok I managed to source a reducer on ebay, 3/4" BSSP male to 1/2" NPT female.

Just one problem, best I could find, was brass. However something tells me I should not be concerned about brass. After all, my pump housings are.
