What is the difference between a close nipple and a shoulder nipple?

A close pipe nipple is designed so that when it is installed there is very little or no gap between the two fittings which attach to either end. There is no unthreaded portion between the threads on the ends.

A shoulder nipple is longer than a close nipple with a small, unthreaded space between the threads on the ends.
