Imperial & Metric Sizes

These sizing may be helpful to those who are unfamiliar with the different descriptions of metric and imperial sizes when specifying pipes or fittings. Imperial sizes for pipe fittings and other components are made to the normal size of the pipe bore in inches and fractions of an inch. Metric Systems are specified by the outside diameter of a pipe expressed in millimetres.
