Single-use pumps save time and money, and are quick and easy to change.

Quattroflow™ from Almatec® Maschinenbau GmbH, has announced that it will display the latest offerings in its single-use line of pumps for use in biologic-handling applications within pharmaceutical and biotech operations at INTERPHEX 2013 in Booth No. 2463.

The INTERPHEX show, which brings together a wide variety of leaders from the pharmaceutical industry, will be held from April 23-25, 2013, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York, NY, USA.

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.

Quattroflow positive displacement pumps are ideal for single-use systems because they incorporate a four piston-diaphragm technology with no mechanical seals that is driven by an eccentric shaft and motor.

Quattroflow pumps primarily serve the pharmaceutical and biotech industries in applications that require high containment, purity and cleanability, and are best known for transferring shear-sensitive media of aqueous solutions and biological products without damage, ultimately ensuring product safety, efficiency and reliability.

Quattroflow pumps feature wetted pump chambers made of plastic, while the valves are made of EPDM and the diaphragms of EPDM/PP compound.

The Quattroflow product line consists of four sizes - QF150, QF1200, QF4400, QF5050 and QF20K - with capacities of 1 to 20,000 lph (5283 gph).
