Acceptable Thread Types in industry:

1. ISO Metric Screw Threads:


These threads are commonly used for general fastening purpose. The
most commonly used class of threads are 6H for internal threads and 6g
for external threads.

2. Unified Inch Screw Threads ( UN and UNR Threads ):


These threads are used for general fastening purpose and available as
Unified Coarse thread series (UNC/UNRC), fine thread series (UNF/UNRF),
extra-fine series (UNEF/UNREF).
The most commonly used classes of threads are 2A & 3A for external
threads and 2B & 3B for internal threads.

3. Pipe Threads G Series:


These are parallel pipe threads having thread angle of 55 and are used where
pressure-tight joints are not made on threads.

4. Taper Pipe Threads Whitworth Form:


These threads have a taper of 1 in 16 and a thread angle of 55 and are used
where pressure tight joints are made on threads.

5. American Pipe Threads:


These threads have a taper of 1 in 16 and a thread angle of 60. The types of
threads include NPT, NPTF & ANPT.

NPTF: "A semi-compatible variant called National Pipe Taper Fuel (NPTF),
also called Dryseal American National Standard Taper Pipe Thread, defined
by ANSI B1.20.3, is designed to provide a more leak-free seal without the
use of teflon tape or other sealant compound. NPTF threads are the same
basic shape but with crest and root heights adjusted for an interference fit,
eliminating the spiral leakage path."
The requirements for ANPT(Aeronautical National Pipe taper) are spelled
out in ANSI SAE AS71051.
The NPT and ANPT product screw threads in the sizes up to and including 2
inches are identical. Beginning at 2-1/2 inches NPT and ANPT product
screw threads are NOT identical.
6. ACME Threads:
Acme screw threads are mainly used for the purpose of producing traversing
motions on machines, tools etc.
The multi-start threads are used to provide fast relative traversing motion.

7. Stub ACME:
The Stub Acme screw threads are generally confined to those unusual
applications like transmission of power and motion where a coarse pitch thread
of shallow depth is required due to mechanical or metallurgical considerations.

8. Trapezoidal Threads:
Trapezoidal threads are used for transmission of power and motion and are
nearly similar to ACME threads, but are made to metric dimensions and
standards.
The most commonly used class of threads are 7E for external threads & 7H for
internal threads.

9. Buttress Screw Thread:


These are asymmetrical threads and are used for transmission of power in one
direction. The most common thread profile is 7 / 45.

10.Round Threads:
These threads are also known as Knuckle threads and are insensitive to
dirt and damage due to their round shape and are used in fastening screw
threads in clutch of railway cars and for large valves and gates, for bottle
caps etc.
