Clamp vs Flange

I know many of us work in a broad field, so what are the general pro's and cons for clamp vs flange in DN50 piping 8 bar for a flow meter?

We are talking about 6 fittings per machines and many machines that come in hygienic or not design. So unless there are some major cons we will use clamps for all versions. Price-wise for the flow meter there is no difference. I'm worried about leaking over time and need to tighten clamps.

Thanks
Jon

Are you talking about sanitary flanges or standard pipe flanges?

As I understand I have two choices
1. Flange
2. Clamp
And for our hygienic case we will use clamp.
I wonder about issues using the clamp in our non-hygienic cases as well.
