ISO 2852

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.

The clamping system may be permanent, using a hose clamp style screw and band, or it may be easily removable using a fold-over hinged clamp assembly.

ISO 2852 is withdrawn as international standard since 31 July 2018.
