Quattroflow Increases Single-Use Pump Manufacturing Footprint with Construction of New Cleanroom
Quattroflow, part of PSG and Dover, announced that it will increase manufacturing capacity for its single-use quaternary diaphragm pumps with the construction of a new ISO Class 7 cleanroom.
Expected to open in October 2021, the additional cleanroom will more than double the Quattroflow cleanroom space in Duisburg, Germany. This investment will help support growing customer demand for single-use pump products used in the production of biologics, drugs and vaccines. The new cleanroom will operate independently from the existing one while following the same assembly procedures to ensure product uniformity.
“Single-use technologies are expanding rapidly in biopharma production as the biopharmaceuticals market continues to grow, including playing a key role in enabling manufacturers to quickly ramp production for COVID-19 vaccines,” said Karl Buscher, President, PSG. “Expanding our cleanroom footprint is a critical step in increasing our single-use manufacturing capacity to satisfy this growing market demand. Additionally, this investment further strengthens our production reliability and capabilities to ensure product consistency and safety.”
Available in a variety of sizes, Quattroflow™ single-use pumps are designed to provide fast installation and qualification of single-use manufacturing systems. They also reduce downtime between batches by eliminating the need for cleaning validation while increasing manufacturing efficiency and delivering the required levels of product purity and sterility that biopharma applications demand.
