Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group Peristaltic Pumps, Tubes, and Hoses for the Pharmaceutical Industry

Specialised peristaltic pumps and fluid path technologies

Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG) provides biopharmaceutical, diagnostics, and pharmaceutical industries with specialised peristaltic pumps and fluid path technologies for research applications.

The company aims to simplify production, utilising its brands to help reduce current good manufacturing practice (cGMP) costs and process validation.

Peristaltic tube pumps for higher downstream processing yields

Watson-Marlow Pumps provides a range of peristaltic tube pumps for applications such as tangential flow filtration (TFF), high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and virus filtration (VF).

The new Quantum bioprocessing pump features a patented ReNu SU Technology® cartridge. Its gentle pumping action enables a higher downstream process yield with low-shear and a highly accurate system prevents cross-contamination and delivers flow linearity through a range of pressures of up to 3bar with 0.12bar pulsation.

Certified to CE, UL, and IEC61010-1 electrical safety standards, the device is controlled through analogue remote-control functions and a front-positioned user interface, with a three-level security lock.

Medical tubing extrusions for biopharmaceutical feed-in applications

Watson-Marlow Tubing is WMFTG’s tubing extrusion plant, which provides ten materials in 50 different sizes, ranging from 0.13mm to 40mm.

The Plumpsil transparent tube is designed for feed-in and pH control applications such as fermentation, metering, transfer, and filtration. It can be sterilised through gamma, autoclave, or ethylene oxide sterilisation (EtO), operating in temperatures from -20°C to 80°C. The tubing is also adheres to European Pharmacopoeia 3.1.9, ISO 10993, and EC 1935/2004 standards, as well as being USP biocompatible for in-vivo and in-vitro applications.

Tubing manufactured in Watson-Marlow Tubing’s ISO 14644-1 Class 7 cleanroom provides sterility throughout the fluid handling process.

Aseptic systems for small batch filling and capping

Flexicon Liquid Filling provides stand-alone and automatic aseptic liquid filling and capping systems. Designed to ease customer validation in pharmaceutical and clinical applications, these machines have a filling accuracy of ±0.5% in volumes from 0.5ml to 250ml.

The PF6 is a table-top aseptic liquid filling machine designed for small-scale filling processes from 0.2ml to 250ml. This adaptable and reliable solution delivers an accurate, contamination-free fill and its portability and durable design means it is suitable for production environments requiring liquid processing in various batch sizes, as well as clinical trials. The closed fluid path can be adjusted in less than one minute.

Fluid path components for the single-use biopharmaceutical sector

BioPure provides single-use fluid connector systems BioBarb™, BioEndCap™, FlatBioEndCap™, and Bio Y. These polypropylene-based systems are supported by validation guides detailing test protocols including ISO, USP, and extractables. This enables WMFTG’s customers to quickly assess component suitability for their manufacturing process.

High-purity platinum-cured silicone gaskets and high-pressure silicone-braided hoses are available, which are designed to meet the requirements of biopharmaceutical applications, helping users to simplify and expedite validation procedures.

High-purity aseptic valves for biopharmaceutical liquid processing

ASEPCO designs and manufactures high-purity aseptic valves for liquid processing applications in the biopharmaceutical industry.

Weirless Radial™ diaphragm in-line valves are self-cleaning and easy-to-seal valves that help eliminate dead legs and a prevent cross-contamination. With a 180° flow path, the valve’s diaphragm can be adapted in less than one minute and feature a simple clamp assembly. No tools or special training is required for change-over.

High-performance sanitary gasket products

FlowSmart is a range of high-performance sanitary gasket products designed in accordance with ASME-BPE standards. The new PolyClamp EPDM gaskets achieve a smooth bore, contamination-free fluid path under clamping compression.

PTFE-lined, flexible hoses

Aflex Hose specialises in the design and manufacture of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) lined and flexible hoses. The chemical-resistance of the PTFE liner and its easy-to-clean design is resistant to steam sterilising.

About Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group

A subsidiary of Spirax-Sarco Engineering, WMFTG’s ten brands collectively have market expertise in fluid transfer solutions, ranging from pumps, to valves, to reinforced hoses and final fill / finish.

The company works closely with clients to ensure its positive displacement pumps provide accurate and significant process efficiencies over the equipment’s lifetime.

WMFTG is based in Falmouth in Cornwall, UK and has offices in locations such as Argentina, Brazil, China, Denmark, France, and Germany, as well as Italy, Japan, Russia, and the US.
