The target application for this positive displacement quaternary diaphragm pump series is the continuous dosing of high-value additives in the food and beverage and personal care industries (e.g. to add concentrates to a fluid stream for soft drinks) as well as for in-line dilution. These ‘QuattroTec’ called pumps can provide a consistent flow that results in a constant and continuous dosing of ingredients in hygienic processes.
QuattroTec pumps incorporate a four-piston diaphragm technology with no mechanical seals that is driven by an eccentric shaft and electric motor. This pump technology provides the ability of transferring clean-in-place (CIP) media with the same pump. These pumps also feature a seal-less design, self-priming and dry run capabilities, compact footprint, high-suction lift and are sanitize-in-place (SIP) capable. QuattroTec pumps comply with FDA 21CFR177.
The QuattroTec Series consists of three sizes – QT10, QT20 and QT30 – with maximum capacities of 180 lph (0.8 gpm) to 5,000 lph (22 gpm). The wetted pump chambers are made of 316 stainless steel, while the valves are made of EPDM and the diaphragms of Santoprene. Typical applications of QuattroTec pumps include food and beverage; perfumes, personal care and cosmetics; enteral nutrition; functional food; additivities and enzymes; liquid yeast and life ingredients.
