Quantex launches its first commercial pump driver: Q-Drive-Alpha

Quantex is excited to announce the official launch of its brand-new pump driver device, the Q-Drive-Alpha. Until now, Quantex has offered driver device equipment for evaluation purposes only, and these kits require separate tablet software to control, but the Q-Drive Alpha is an easy-to-use, CE marked, plug-and-play system, providing a stand-alone dispenser that can be used both for pump evaluation as well as for commercial use in production or laboratories. 

The Q-Drive-Alpha drives two of the Quantex pumps: the Microdosing QX2 pump and the Low Flow QX25-SD and QX25-HP pumps. With an integrated full-colour 7” touch screen, this plug and play driver is simple to programme (and re-programme), and, in a few intuitive taps, it is possible to run the pumps at a variety of speeds for different flow rates or set dose volumes, with reverse cycling and self-priming functions.Phil Medcalf, Product Manager at Quantex explains “We are thrilled to be launching the Q-Drive-Alpha since it meets a key requirement for our customers who need a simple and easy-to-use system to run our pumps. This device will help to speed up the adoption of Quantex technology into our customer’s flow-control processes, both in food and beverage, industrial and biopharma applications.”

Jonathan Ford, Quantex’s Engineering Director adds “The Q-Drive-Alpha design and development was realised very efficiently by the engineering team due to our long-standing expertise on the ideal motors, connection, and driver software for our pumps — and I’m proud that the finished result has a carefully considered and intuitive user interface to maximise the ease of use for our customers.”
