API Thread Dimensions?

Answer

API is an acronym for the American Petroleum Institute. Thread dimensions refer to the threads that make up an oil pipe when drilling for petroleum oil. Different dimensions will yield different results in the drilling process. When measuring thread dimensions, the pipe should be placed on a flat surface and a tape measure or caliper should be used from one end of the pipe to the other. The thread dimensions on oil pipes are standardized by the American Petroleum Institute.
