This single-use line of pumps – named Quattroflow – is developed for use in biologic-handling applications within pharmaceutical and biotech operations. The incorporation of single-use pumps in biologic-handling applications is gaining wider acceptance among pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturers because they can help optimize end-product speed-to-market. Single-use, or disposable, pumps feature replaceable wetted pump chamber, which is an advantage for manufacturers looking to maximize their production operations. The single-use pumps reduce downtime between two batches, save time and money, and are quick and easy to change.

A key component in process chromatography systems is a Quattroflow QF-150 Series Biotech Pump. QF-150 pumps are ideal for this application because they offer unique capabilities to the system and contribute toward an ideal solution for the chromatography purification process. Important fluid-transfer needs are met through the QF-150’s controlled low-pulsation flow for stable process control, low-shear operation for delicate product and media handling, and high turn-up/down capability for scaleability.
The need for hygienic pumps is widespread across industries such as dairy, food, beverage, pharmaceutical, biotech and cosmetics. The range of applications where they are used is diverse and, like other pump requirements, reliability is a major consideration to maximise productivity. Through its Waukesha Cherry-Burrell, APV and Johnson Pump brands, SPX Flow Technology has one of the widest ranges of pumps available in hygienic designs, developed from close partnership with our customers and an intense understanding of the applications in the industries.
The strictness of demands imposed by legislators and operators on plants and systems employed in the process engineering industry in general and in aseptic process engineering in particular, continue to intensify. Whilst terms such as reliability, availability, life cycle costs, or diagnostic capabilities were used when it came to the characterisation of process pumps previously, cost and energy-efficiency are nowadays increasingly regarded as priority factors.
