The Quantum Roller Pump
With a total commitment to reduce both the spacial envelope and the overall weight of the Quantum Heart Lung machine, Spectrum Medical made a significant decision to be the world's first provider of roller pumps with three different race-way diameters. Having the ability to choose between a 4", 6" and 8" race-ways eliminates the compromises that force many users to use 8" pumps for medium flow applications.
To support pump configuration changes to your Quantum Heart Lung Machine or your Quantum ECLS System Spectrum Medical has focused on developing a compact motor design for easy weight handling and a mounting system that supports pump changes in less than 60 seconds. Importantly, Quantum's "Pump Detection" software ensures there is no required user input to support pump re-configuration.
Electronic Drive Systems:
All three motor units are direct drive with non-contacting brushless motors to maximise both motor endurance and low-noise in operation.
New to peristaltic pump technology is the integration of "Field Orientation Control" technology that ensures precision control of pump RPM both in continuous and pulsatile modes and a significant reduction in power consumption which increases overall battery life.
Tube Clamping Systems:
Spectrum Medical's patented universal tube clamping system has been designed to eliminate the frustration of using today's tube clamping solutions and colour coded plastic inserts. A single "bobbin" solution allows for the clamping of all tubing diameters associated with the selected size of race-way.
