A note on fitting sizes.
BSP sizes are given in inches. BSP stands for British Standard Pipe threads. Please note these sizes are for the pipe the fitting attaches to, and not the fitting itself. Therefore the real measured thread size of the fitting is not the reported BSP size. For example, a 2 inch BSP male thread measures approximately 2 1/4 inches (~ 6cm). Details of IBC sizes are given on the IBC product page.
