Quattroflow to Showcase Single-Use Quaternary Diaphragm Pumps at INTERPHEX 2014
Pump Solutions Group (PSG) brand Quattroflow is a leading pump manufacturer of positive displacement quaternary diaphragm pumps for the biopharmaceutical industry. The company recently announced that it will showcase the latest additions to its line of single-use diaphragm pumps at INTERPHEX 2014. The INTERPHEX Show features over 650 vendors from the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries.
Quattroflow’s single-use product line of four-piston diaphragm pumps is designed for use in biologic-handling applications within pharmaceutical and biotech operations. Five pump sizes are available within this product line, offering capacities between 1 to 20,000 L/hr (5,283 gph).
This year, the injected molded single-use pump chambers for use in the QF1200 series are a new addition that will allow Quattroflow pumps to be used in more single-use applications. The innovative pump chambers reduces waste material and lowers overall cost of production. Depending on the application, Quattroflow pumps can easily convert from these single-use plastics to fully cleanable/sterilizeable stainless heads.
Single-Use (Disposable) Quaternary Pumps are becoming more popular among pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturers for use in biologic-handling applications because they can help increase speed-to-market. The pumps also reduce downtime between batches and are quick and easy to change, which saves the end user both time and money.
This pump type is ideal for biopharmaceutical processes because of its design, which does not require mechanical seals and offers very linear flow characteristics with high turn down capability. Quattroflow pumps with this design are able to efficiently transfer shear-sensitive material and ultimately ensure product reliability, viability, and safety.
INTERPHEX 2014 will be held from March 18-20 in New York, NY. Quattroflow will be displaying in Booth No. 2633.
