Reference Guide: Pipe Size Charts

 

In North America, nominal pipe size (NPS) is the standard for identifying pipe sizes. Outside of North America, pipes are identified by nominal diameter, which approximately equates to the outer diameter (OD) of the pipe in millimeters.

Note that an NPS below 14 approximately refers to the diameter of a pipe measured from the center of the wall material to the opposing side center of the wall material, while an NPS 14 or greater matches the outside diameter of the pipe precisely. 

While NPS defines the OD of a pipe, the pipe schedule is also needed to determine other variants, such as pipe wall thickness and inner diameter (ID). The most prevalent schedule sizes are Schedule 40 and Schedule 80. However, a piping project may stipulate higher schedule numbers.
