Quattroflow quaternary diaphragm pumps are constructed according to the state of the art and they
are reliable. Imminent danger by operating error or misuse can lead to damages of properties and/or
persons. The pumps are to be applied for the intended use and in a safety-related proper condition
only.
1.2. Storage
In general the Quattroflow pump is delivered operational and packaged. If the unit is not installed right
away, proper storage conditions are important for a trouble free operation later. The pump has to be
protected from wetness, coldness, dirtying, UV-radiation and mechanical influences. The following
storage conditions are recommended:
- Steady ventilated, dust and vibration free storage room
- Ambient temperature between 15°C (59°F) and 25°C (77°F) with a relative humidity below 65%
- Prevention of direct thermal influences (sun, heating)
1.3. Labelling of the pump
The ALMATEC Maschinenbau GmbH is certified as a modern, quality-orientated enterprise according
to DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 and 14001:2009. Before release for dispatch, any Quattroflow pump has to
undergo an extended final control. The performance data registered during this are archived in our
records and can be read back at any time.
As a general rule in the countries of the EU only such machines are allowed to take into operation,
which are determined to meet the regulations of the EU machinery directive, the harmonized
standards, European standards and the respective national standards. Hence the operator has to
verify whether the Quattroflow pump manufactured and delivered properly according to the customers
order meets the mentioned requirements.
Therefore make sure, before putting the pump into operation, that the pump and the used materials of
construction are suitable for the provided application and the installation site.
The type label of each Quattroflow pump can be seen on the bottom of the base plate. Besides the
serial number of the pump head is fixed at the front cover.

- Feed pump for filling machines
QF150SU; edition 2014-10; page 4 of 19
2.2. General description of the machine
The Quattroflow 150 SU pump is a 4-piston diaphragm pump. The four segments of the pump
diaphragm oscillate back and forth. This alternate movement is created by a connector plate that is
arranged on a ball bearing. The ball bearing sits on an eccentric shaft. The connector plate does not
turn!
The stroke of the pistons is determined by the angle of the eccenter. There are eccentric shafts with 5°
available.
Range of flow rate:
5° eccentric shaft: appr. 1 - 180 L/hr
The product wetted pump chamber is provided for single use applications and can easily be replaced
after usage. Due to the dispose of the pump chamber after use, efforts for cleaning, validation and
risks for cross contaminations are eliminated.
Please note:
The direction of flow can be adjusted by turning the pump chamber in 90° steps.
The Quattroflow 150 SU is self-priming and can run dry. Inside the pump chamber there are no
rotating parts that might cause heating up of the product or shed particles.
The pump-motor unit is mounted on a stainless steel base plate. In case that the pump will not be
mounted on the base plate but in a frame or any other base measures have to be taken that there will
be a proper alignment of the motor and the pump.
2.3. Start-up
A Quattroflow single-use pump is delivered pre-assembled. Three plastic pump chambers are
attached to each new pump unit. One of them has to be installed according to the instructions in
Section 4.1. (replacement of the pump chamber), while the other two are for a further replacement.
Before start-up of the pump anyone should acquaint oneself with the explanations of the chapter
troubleshooting (see page 16). Only by this the defect quickly can be realized and eliminated in case
of trouble. Problems which cannot be solved or with an unknown reason should be passed on to the
manufacturer.
Prior to each use we recommend to flush the pump with a proper fluid (e.g. water or buffer).
Prior to the very first use it might make sense to clean and sanitize the pump chamber. A commercial
caustic cleaner and/or 0.1N to 0.5N NaOH can be applied. The chosen cleaning agent can be
recirculated and also stored inside the pump chamber. For flushing out of any cleaning agent do not
recirculate! Check with appropriate analytical methods the success of the flushing procedure..
Recommendation: Test run prior first use!
Before using your pump in your process perform a test run to get used to the specific
properties of the pump.
Please note: ALMATEC Maschinenbau GmbH is also building custom-made pumps and set-ups.
These modified pumps can be different from this one that is described in here. However the basic
information is applicable to all of the Quattroflow 150 SU Series pumps. Please do not hesitate to
contact us for further information.
Pay attention to a sufficiently dimensioned piping. A too small piping of the
suction line can cause cavitation as well as a loss of performance.
QF150SU; edition 2014-10; page 5 of 19
If hoses were used in the suction line, make sure that they do not collapse due to the negative
pressure.
When installing the pump please consider that around the pump enough space is available for
operation and maintenance. Pay attention to the required space needed for assembly and
disassembly of the pump chamber (see 4.1.1.).
During start-up pay attention to the warning and safety instructions of the following chapter 3
of this manual.
2.4. Control panel

2.5. Cleaning (CIP)
The pump chamber has been designed for single use only. Cleaning is not necessary, as the pump
chamber is replaced after each use.
QF150SU; edition 2014-10; page 6 of 19
2.6. Autoclave
To autoclave an unused pump chamber we recommend the following steps.
1. Removal of pump chamber from packaging
2. Close in and outlet of the pump e.g. by connecting hoses. Ensure that a free interchange of
gas and steam over a sterile barrier (e.g. sterile filter) at in- and outlet is available.
3. Autoclaving of the prepared pump chamber in a vacuum autoclave at max. 130°C (266°F) for
max. 30 min. Follow instructions of the autoclave manufacturer.
4. After cooling down, the screws of the membrane housing cover and the connectors should be
verified and retorqued if necessary. The corresponding screws are marked and shown in the
attached picture.
2.7. Gamma Irradiation
The single use pump chamber can be gamma irradiated with a maximum dose of 50 kGy.
QF150SU; edition 2014-10; page 7 of 19
3. Safety

Basically, operations at the pump must be performed during standstill only.
The motor has to disconnect from the power supply, e.g. by pulling out the
power plug or using a repair switch, and has to secure against unintentional
switch-on. This can be realized by a lockable emergency switch. To prevent
an accidental re-starting a danger sign should be installed.
The operator must ensure that all maintenance, inspection and installation work is
performed by authorized and qualified skilled personnel acquainted themselves
with this manual.
Before starting to disassemble the pump, take care that the pump has been
emptied, rinsed, depressurized and disconnected at all phases of the power
supply. Both ports piping are to be closed and drained if applicable. If the pump is
being deported from the plant, a reference about the delivered liquid has to be
attached.
Pumps or aggregates handling noxious fluids (e.g. caustic, bio hazardous) must
be decontaminated. Immediately following completion of the work, all safetyrelevant and protective devices must be re-installed and/or re-activated. Before
putting the pump back into operation, take care of the mentioned instructions of
the chapter “start-up” and check the tightness of the pump.
Please respect the relevant additional security advices, if the pump has been
used for aggressive, dangerous or toxic liquids (e.g. suitable protective equipment
according to the safety data sheet of the liquid). In case of a diaphragm rupture, it
is possible that residues of the liquid remain behind the diaphragms and in the
area of the ring drive. Hence, appropriate safety equipment according to the
safety data sheet of the liquid is indispensable.
Especially when deliver critical liquids, wear parts, like diaphragms, should be
replaced within a preventive maintenance.
o Procedure for pump return: According to the requirements of our 14001certification, every unit which is send to ALMATEC for diagnosis or maintenance
reasons has to be accompanied by a filled out decontamination-sheet. Otherwise
a processing is not possible. The decontamination-sheet is enclosed to this
manual. Please pay attention to the further safety regulations.

3.7. Unauthorized reconstruction and spare part usage
The use of non-original Quattroflow spare parts or not authorized accessories and
reconstructions lead to the lapse of the warranty immediately. When operating such a
pump, damages of properties and/or persons cannot be excluded..

3.8. Inadmissible modes of operation
A safety operation of the pump is ensured only by an appropriate use according to the
specific data of the enclosed pump data sheet. The values limitations given in the data
sheet must not be exceeded.
QF150SU; edition 2014-10; page 9 of 19
3.9. Further warning and safety instructions
These warning hints are to prevent the user from an inadmissible mode of operation. These
warning hints are to be strictly followed to avoid any damage of the pump and/or any danger to
personnel
The maximum allowed discharge pressure depends on the temperature of the fluid:
pmax at room temperature = 4 bar (>40°C = 3 bar) [=58 psi (>104°F = 43 psi)]. An
exceeding of the maximum allowed discharge pressure must avoid in any case (do
not remove the warning sign at the pump). As a result – if only temporarily – of an
exceeding of the allowed discharge pressure the diaphragm can be damaged. The
resulting leakage may lead to a loss of the pumping fluid and damages of properties
4
and/or persons. Pay attention to a sufficiently dimensioned piping on the suction and
discharge line to prevent a too high pressure in the pump. The pump chamber may
not be set under pressure when it is not mounted on the drive.

The free cross section of the suction side as well as the length must be measured in
such a way to avoid cavitation.

The use of a safety device (e.g. pressure switch) can be necessary..

Please make sure that prior to the start of the pump the discharge line is checked.
Make sure that there is no flow restriction in the discharge line to avoid any over
pressure (e.g. closed valve).

Flush the pump prior to use with appropriate fluid (e.g. buffer).

Foundation design: The foundation must be designed so that it can take the weight of
the pump aggregate on the entire surface. .

Please make sure that the pump is operated with the proper mains voltage and
frequency to avoid damages and electrical danger.

Make sure that the slots for the cooling air are not blocked.

Due to the versatile possibilities to use the Quattroflow pump it is highly
recommended to check case by case if the pump will be the right tool for the specific
application. The user/operator is responsible to perform a proper method of testing if
the pump should be applied for his specific application. The chemical and thermal
compatibility of the elastomeric parts of the pump with the fluid that will be pumped
are to be checked by the operator before the first process run. E.g. Oily, fatty fluids or
solvents might cause a swelling and/or destruction of the elastomeric components. If
in doubt, please contact the manufacturer!

Operating the pump in humid or aggressive air can cause damages to the motor and
control box.

The control box should not be exposed to spray/splash water or to heat sources.

Depending on the conditions of operation, the liquid conveyed might escape from the
pump in case of a diaphragm rupture. For further safety requirements the optional
equipment diaphragm monitoring is recommended.

Pools of liquid which appear in the near outer area of the pump have to be inspected
on danger potential, if necessary safety measures are to be taken.

Chemical and biological reactions in the product chamber of the pump (mixture of
different substances) and the freezing of the liquid have to be avoided.

To avoid corrosion the contact of aggressive solutions (e.g. NaCl, HCl) with the outer
stainless steel surfaces of the pump (e.g. hood, base plate) has to be prevented.

The Quattroflow pump is a positive displacement pump and can theoretically generate
an infinitely high pressure even at low speed (rpm). Prior to each start of the pump
check and make sure that the discharge line is not closed or restricted. The design of
the discharge line must not build up a pressure of > 4 bar (58 psi).

If suction and/or discharge line are flexible tubing, then make sure that these tubing
do have the proper pressure rating for the full range of temperatures that are applied.

Please follow the general safety guidelines when handling chemical fluids (wear
gloves and/or glasses) before the pump chamber will be opened.

Never operate the pump without coupling protection and motor housing.
QF150SU; edition 2014-10; page 10 of 19

Quattroflow pumps can lead to bruises when lifting, sinking or assembling them.
Appropriate accessories and safety equipments are to be used. Big and heavy
modules have to fixed and secured to lifting gears when transporting/replacing them.

Disconnect mains before doing any maintenance! The housing of the control box or
the motor is to be opened only by skilled personnel. Check the electrical cables before
connecting to mains supply.

During all maintenance work it has to be ensured that no explosive atmosphere can
arise. Appropriate protection equipment is recommended. The Quattroflow 150 SU
must not be operated in explosion-proof areas. Special versions for “ATEX”
applications are available. Please contact the manufacturer.
Attention! Inadmissible modes of operation, arbitrary reconstruction, spare parts production
and/or any changes of the design (without admission of the manufacturer) may cancel the
liability for the consequences resulting there from.
