ISO 2852 Stainless steel clamp pipe couplings for the food industry was an international standard that defines a non-permanent sanitary food-grade piping interconnect method, commonly used in the food processing industry and with dairy farm equipment.
The interconnect consists of:
The combined lip flange and gasket do not impede the flow of fluids through the piping.
