Quantum sets new standard in peristaltic pump performance for single-use downstream bioprocessing

Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG) showcases Quantum, a new innovative peristaltic pump with patented ReNu SU technology cartridge. Being the latest development by the world leader in peristaltic innovation, Quantum sets the new standard for high-pressure feed pumps in SU tangential flow filtration (TFF), virus filtration (VF) and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).

Flow linearity with lowest pulse

Quantum offers highest accuracy with flow linearity independent of back-pressure, removing the need for flow meters and load cells. Flow linearity is achieved across the 3 bar SU processing pressure range up to 20 litre/min, with trace pulsation of only ±0.12 bar that is far lower than other pumps. This virtually pulse-free performance enables constant pressure, thus maximising process efficiency and yield.
 
Wide turndown with ultra-low shear

Quantum provides ultra-low shear, significantly lower than that of diaphragm pumps. In addition, an integrated 4000:1 speed control ratio allows users to sustain constant transmembrane pressure in micro and ultrafiltration.

At the heart of the Quantum pump is the patented ReNu SU technology cartridge, which is simple to install, enabling its aseptic fluid paths to be positioned quickly and accurately ready for use.

The ReNu SU technology cartridge slides effortlessly into position allowing for a change of fluid path in minutes whilst eliminating alignment errors.

Quantum’s ReNu SU cartridge offers validation and extractable data in line with BPOG/BPSA/USP/ISO guidelines. Suitable for gamma irradiation up to 50kGy, ReNu SU is manufactured in an ISO Class 7 cleanroom.

Quantum’s ReNu SU delivers considerable reduction in the cost and time of pump and process validation, thus maximising process efficiency and yield.

120 cased pumps for biopharm, science and research

The 120 series pumps are compact peristaltic cased pumps for applications in the biopharm sector and in science and research. The pumps are available with three drive options and five different pumpheads, offering high accuracy from 0.0001 to 190 ml/min.

The 114DV single-channel pumphead with four rollers provides gentle fluid transfer. Flip-top technology guarantees trouble-free continuous tube loading, high accuracy and repeatable flow. It accepts tubing in bore sizes 0.5mm to 4.8mm.

Depending on the model, the 120 offers manual speed control from 1-200 rpm operation in 1 rpm increments. automatic control is available via 4-20mA or 0-10V inputs.

The 120 series ceased pumps are ultra-compact and stackable. The intuitive interface makes the pump easy and quick to setup and to operate, with few key presses.

Watson-Marlow’s innovative peristaltic cased pumps for maximum purity, accuracy and process safety

Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group showcases innovative peristaltic cased process pumps for the food and beverage, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries.

The new 530 and 630 models offer highest levels of accuracy for all demanding metering applications where purity is essential

The new pumps offer easier operation and control. A bright colour HMI-display, an intuitive menu structure and visual status indication allow operation with fewer key presses. Three-level PIN protection guarantees maximum process safety

The pumps offer flow rates from 0.0001 ml/min to 18.7 litre/min at pressures up to 7 bar and a control range of 2,200:1 and 2,650:1. They alow for easy system integration and are offering four drive options, enabling users to choose from manual operation to fully automated control. Up to 16 pumps can be linked up via real-time communication. IP31 and IP66 protection options make the 530 and 630 cased pumps suitable for all environments.

Precision tubing from Watson-Marlow

Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group is the only manufacturer of peristaltic pumps to make its own tubing. Precision tubing by Watson-Marlow is available in a broad range of materials for use in peristaltic pumps and other purposes.

Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group manufactures tubing in ISO 14644-1 Class 7 extrusion facility at the company’s headquarters in the United Kingdom. Two independent tube production lines guarantee continuity of supply.

Pumpsil, showcased at interpack, is a platinum-cured silicone tubing for single-use applications in biopharmaceutical manufacturing. Process security and complete traceability are guaranteed by with laser-etched part number, lot number and use-by-date.

In contrast to silicone tubing from other manufacturers, production of the Watson-Marlow Pumpsil silicone tubing includes an additional post-curing step to the tubing production. This ensures more cross-linking that not only makes the tubing mechanically stronger, but reduces the semi-volatile compounds. Thanks to this additional work step, the presence of extractables, in particular cyclosiloxanes is reduced significantly.

PureWeld XL tube, also showcased at interpack is a thermoplastic elastomer that is animal derived content free (ADCF). PureWeld XL can be welded, allowing complete fluid paths to be assembled in minutes without connectors. It has very low internal spallation in peristaltic pumps.

All tubing from Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group are available in numerous different bore sizes and wall thicknesses.

About us

Company details

Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG) is the world leader in niche peristaltic pumps and associated fluid path technologies for the food, pharmaceutical, chemical and environmental industries. Comprising ten established brands, each with their own area of expertise, but together offering our customers unrivalled solutions for their pumping and fluid transfer applications.

Customers demand many things from their process equipment and the prime concern is maintaining product integrity. Positive displacement pump companies such as Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG) need to supply products which meet a range of requirements including: value for money; low cost of ownership; reliability; ease of maintenance; and proven after sales service.

There is also the issue of return on investment. We work closely with our customers to demonstrate how our positive displacement pumps ensure accurate metering, transfer and filling, can deliver significant process efficiencies over the lifetime of the equipment. 

Factors that need to be considered when choosing a pump include: flow rate; pressures in the system; the fluid viscosity and abrasiveness; temperature; suction conditions; and the size of any particulates. WMFTG has dedicated application engineers available to help customers make the right pump choice.

Watson-Marlow Pumps: peristaltic tube pumps including the new Qdos pumps which negate the need for ancillaries, boost productivity and cut chemical waste, via more accurate, linear and repeatable metering than conventional solenoid or stepper-driven diaphragm metering pumps in the environmental and mining sectors.

Watson-Marlow Tubing: precision tubing including Pumpsil platinum-cured silicone, plays a key role in biotechnology and pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. Tubing manufactured in our ISO 14644-1 Class 7 clean room, provides absolute sterility throughout the fluid handling process.

Flexicon Liquid Filling: aseptic filling and capping systems ease customer validation in demanding contamination-free pharmaceutical and clinical diagnostic applications. Designed for small to medium sized batch production, systems provide filling accuracy of ±0.5% over volumes from 0.5ml to 250ml.

Bredel Hose Pumps: heavy-duty hose pumps which are self-priming, dry running, and with no valves, seals or glands. Hose pumps improve processes by eliminating costly ancillary items like anti-siphon valves, back-pressure valves, degassing valves or run-dry protection, in high viscosity sludge handling and abrasive fluid duties.

MasoSine Process Pumps: sinusoidal pumps designed specifically for the food industry. Pumps produce powerful suction with low shear and low pulsation, to safely transfer delicate products without risk of degradation. The highly efficient MasoSine pumps' working principle means they can contribute to energy savings and a reduction in CO2.

Alitea: pumpheads and panel-mount drives for OEM customers, equipment and machinery manufacturers who need to bring products to market faster and with less engineering cost. Genuine ‘fit and forget’ solutions providing long and predictable service life.
