FOREWORD
(This Foreword is not part of ASME B I .20.7-1991.)

Local standards for small hose coupling threads in use prior to 1920 were summarized in a table in the Proceedings of the National Fire Protection Association, Vol. 24, 1920, p. 180. Of these, the Standard Iron Pipe Thread had been most widely used, and it had been reliably reported that this thread had beenin use for small hose couplings since 1894 or earlier. In the case of the three-fourths-inch size, however, 11 and 11%threads per inch, with a diameter of 1%6in. were already in very extensive use for garden hose. It was reported thatthe first garden hose spray nozzle had been made prior to 1890 in the shops of the W. D. Allen Mfg. Co., Chicago. In 1918 the Fire Dept. Supply and Linen Hose Section of the War Industries Board recommended that for the duration of the war hydrants, hose valves, hose couplings, nipples, and nozzles 1% in. to 2 in., inclusive, to be iron pipe thread for new work, hose gauge or special threads only to be used for replacement or extension of existing plant equipment. The adoption of such a standard will result in the elimination of the various so-called hose threads which are used locally in the differentsections of the country. Such a standard will also permit repairs or connections being made in the field by the use of wrought iron pipe connections or fittings. It will also result in considerable saving in correspondence and detail now necessary in endeavoring to ascertain what particular hose standard thread is desired. A blueprint of the nominal sizes and pitches of hose thread dimensions, dated March 5, 1918, of the National Association of Brass Manufacturers was furnished the National Screw Thread Commission in November, 1918. Limits of size for iron pipe thread sizes and pitches were designed as National hose coupling thread dimensions and adopted by the National Association of Brass Manufacturers March 18, 1920. These were in agreement with those in the Progress Report of the N.S.T.C., approved June 19, 1920, and published January 4, 1921 as NBS Miscellaneous Publication No. 42. A survey in 1925 of some of the members of the National Association of Brass Manufacturers showed these standards to be satisfactory. These threads from V2 to 2 in. diameter are now designated NPSH. In January 1927, The American Society of Mechanical Engineers requested the American Engineering Standards Committee (later changed to the American Standards Association) to authorize the organization of a Sectional Committee to complete the standardization of firehose couplings and to attempt to unify and complete the existing dimensions of small hose couplings. This authority was given and the Sectional Committee B33 was organized in October, 1928, under the sponsorship of The American Society of Mechanical Engineers, to prepare specificationsfor screw threads for small hose couplings ranging from h to 2 in. nominal size. A draft dated July 1935 was approved by the American Standards Association and issued as ASA B33.1-1935. At its meeting of April 13, 1961, the ASA Mechanical Standards Board assigned responsibility for future revisions of the American Standards B26-1925, Fire-Hose Couplings Screw Thread, and B33.1-1935, Hose Coupling Screw Threads to Sectional Committee B2. As a result, the name of the Committee was changed to Sectional Committee B2 on the Standardization of Pipe and Hose Coupling Threads.

Subcommittee 6 on Hose Coupling Threads was organized and held its first meeting on October 24, 1962 to undertake the revision of ASA B33.1-1935. Subcommittee 7 on Fire Hose Coupling Threads was organized and held its first meeting on October 25, 1962 to undertake the revision of ASA B26-1925. It was arranged that Subcommittee 7 would include in its scope those thread sizes in ASA B33.1-1935 which are used primarily for fire protection purposes. The proposed revision of B33.1, designated B2.4, was submitted to the sponsor organizations and the United States of America Standards Institute, and formally designated a USA Standard on December 30, 1966. In 1973 the American National Standards Committee B2 was absorbed by ANSI Standard Committee B1 and reorganized as Subcommittee 20. B2.4 was reaffirmed without revisionby Standard Committee B1 and redesignated as ANSUASME Standard B1.20.7 on August 5, 1983. This revision was approved by the American National Standards Institute on September 19, 1991.

1.2 Federal Government Use


When this Standard is approved by the Department of Defense and Federal Agencies and is incorporated into FED-STD-H28/10, Screw Thread Standards for Federal Services Section 10, the use ofthis Standard by the Federal Government is subject to all the requirements and limitations of FED-STD-H28/10.

Standard hose coupling threads for garden hose application where the design utilizes thin walled material which is formed to the desired thread.

NPSH Hose coupling joints ordinarily made with straight internal and external loose-fitting threads. By the use of this thread series, it is possible to join small hose couplings in sizes '12 to 4; inclusive, to ends of standard pipe having NPT threads using a gasket to seal the joint.

3 TOLERANCES,

Figure 1 shows the relationship between external (nipple) and internal (coupling swivel) dimensions. The pitch diameter tolerances for a mating nipple and coupling swivel are the same. Pitch diameter tolerances include lead and angle variations. Values for variations in lead and half-angles consuming one-half of the pitch diameter tolerance are shown in Table 5 . The tolerance relationships are as follows.

HOSE COUPLING SCREW THREADS(INCH)

3.1 For Nipple (External) Threads (except NHR)


(u) Major Diameter Tolerances = 2 X Pitch Diameter Tolerance (b) Minor Diameter Tolerance = Pitch Diameter Tolerance f 2h/9 (h = Basic Thread Height. See Fig. 1). The minimum minor diameter of the nipple is such as to result in a flat equal to '13 of the P/8 basic flat or P/24 at the root, when the pitch diameter of the nipple is at its minimum value. The maximum minor diameter is such as to result in a P / 8 flat at the root of the nipple thread at maximum pitch diameter, but may be such as what would be produced the use of a worn or rounded by threading tool. This is the maximum minor diameter shown in Fig. 1 and is the diameter on which the minor diameter tolerance formula shown above is based. In practice, the minor diameter of an external thread is satisfactory when accepted by a gage or gaging method that represents the maximum material condition of the internal thread.

pling swivel is such as to result in a basic flat of P / 8 at the crest when the pitch diameter of the coupling swivel is at its minimum value. (b) Major Diameter Tolerance = Pitch Diameter Tolerance 2h/9. The minimum major diameter of the coupling swivel is such as to result in a basic flat of P / 8 at the root of the thread when the pitch diameter is at its minimum value;

3.2 For Coupling Swivel (Internal) Threads (except NHR)


(a) Minor Diameter Tolerance = 2 X Pitch Diameter Tolerance. The minimum minor diameter of the cou-

Acceptability of product screw threads, based on the method specified, shall be in accordance with ANSI/ ASME B1.3M.Gages and gaging are in accordance with ANSUASME B1.2. Gage dimensions are specifiedin Tables 6 , 7, and 8. The maximum minor diameter of the GO thread gage for external product threads is equal to the minimum minor diameter of the internal product thread. All other gage dimensions are calculated in accordance with ANSUASMEB1.2. Gage design shall be in accordance with American National Standard ASME/ ANSI B47.l .

NOTES: (1) Dimensions for the minimum major diameter of the coupling correspond to the basic flat ('h X P ) , and the profile at the major diameter produced by a worn tool must not fall below the basic outline. For reference only the maximum major diameter of the coupling shall be that corresponding t o a flat at the major diameter of the maximum coupling equal to '124 X P and may be determined by adding 12/9 X h (or 0.7939P) tothe maximum pitch diameter of the coupling. (2) Data on the 4-6NH(SPL) thread are included since this thread is used extensively aboard ship by the Navy Department.

NOTES: (1) The tolerances specified for pitch diameter include all variation of pitch diameter, lead, and angle. The full tolerance cannot, therefore, be used on pitch diameter unless the lead and angle of the thread are perfect. The last t w o columns give, for information, the variations in lead and angle, each of which can compensated for byhalf the pitch-diameter tolerance given be in column 4. If lead and angle variations both existt o the amount tabulated, the pitchdiameter of a nipple, for example, must be reduced by the full tolerances,or it will notenter the GO gage. (2)Between any t w o threads not fartherapart then the length of engagement. (3) Values are based upon diameter equivalents of half-angle variations equal t o 1.5P tan Aa where P is the thread pitchand Aa is half-angle variation. This relationship is an approximation where half-angle variations of the flanks are equal.
