Food Grade Pipe Fittings


Advanced Couplings are experienced manufacturers of high quality food grade pipe fittings and tube/pipe connection systems to the dairy, pharmaceutical and chemical industries.  Established over forty years ago, we have developed a worldwide reputation for the exceptional standard and precision of our products.


Advanced Couplings was founded by Mr John J Henry who had a long association with the pipe joint and clamping industries lasting over forty years.  Mr Henry established Advanced Couplings in the West Yorkshire town of Keighley; a town with a tradition of being home to many manufacturing and textile companies.


The Advanced Couplings range of food grade pipe fittings includes a standard range of clamps, ferrules, gaskets, hose tails, reducers, sight glasses, pipe clips and bends.  As we now have an international reputation, we are able to supply our standard products in all of the sizes commonly used throughout the UK and Europe, along with a huge number of sizes used internationally.


Advanced Couplings understand that different industries have differing needs and this is why we are very proud of our capability to produce bespoke products on request, tailor-made to the specifications supplied by the customer.


One of the latest additions to the Advanced Couplings’ range of food grade pipe fittings is the innovative SH Style Safety Clamp.  The design of this clamp has been developed using the template of Advanced Couplings’ market leading SH Clamp.  The SH Style Safety Clamp has been introduced to help improve the safety of operators working throughout the industries with potentially hazardous high pressure steam lines.


The Shrouded Safety Clamp is another new addition to the Advanced Couplings’ food grade pipe fittings range.  Developed around the principal used to design the SH Style Safety Clamp, this new variant benefits from the additional safety of a domed nut which replaces the winged nut.  This use of a domed nut eliminates the potential for the clamp to be released by hand; for additional safety the domed nut can only be released with the correct socket adapter.


The Lock-Out Safety Clamp has been developed as part of the Advanced Couplings’ food grade pipe fittings range and is an advanced version of the Shrouded Safety Clamp.  The wing nut has again been replaced with a domed nut but this version has been extended in length to allow the use of a coded or key-operated padlock.

Advanced Couplings’ products are distributed around the world by our team of agents who are all fully conversant in the different technical and performance capabilities of every product.  All products are manufactured in Advanced Coupling’s purpose built factory in Roscommon, Ireland which has been equipped with the most up-to-date CAD and CNC manufacturing equipment available.
