CP Pumps unveils innovative new diaphragm pump

CheckPoint Pumps & Systems has launched its latest innovation, the Series HDA electric diaphragm chemical injection pump — in order to meet high demand from customers in the Middle East. The Series HDA comes equipped with a diaphragm dosing head that allows for efficient, environmentally safe injection.
The company’s newest addition promises increased reliability fit for any location, especially in remote or unmanned areas, where productive use of resources can offer impressive financial returns.
The hydraulically driven diaphragm pump offers oilfield operators and pumping solutions providers with a performance-minded, value-balanced solution to meet the wide variety of injection needs required throughout and beyond the Middle East.
Cameron Marland, vice president, CP Pumps and Systems FZE, said: “The Series HDA pump comes with several built-in safety features, including zero external leaks and failure indication, which supports client confidence in even the most remote locations or harsh environments.
With superior design features and exceptional build quality, the HDA Series pumps perform consistently for extended periods, with minimum monitoring and inspection requirements.”
“We’re extremely pleased that CheckPoint can now offer our clients a complete range of dosing options from within our own comprehensive product lineup — whether electric, pneumatic, or solar driven,” Marland added.
“This will complement CheckPoint’s current offering and give its loyal clients yet another opportunity to use their preferred pumps across the span of their operations. CheckPoints diaphragm pump, years in the making, shows how imperative innovation is to its customers and operations.”
CheckPoint’s triple-layered metallic diaphragm pump uses reciprocating motion to accumulate hydraulic pressure on one side of the diaphragm, and then transmits that pressure to pump the chemical on the other side.
The HDA diaphragm not only flexes easily, but is also robust and highly pressure resistant. This, coupled with its multi-layer sandwich design, ensures no contamination between the two liquid bodies and allows the HDA to function safely at all times — even if one layer becomes damaged.
CheckPoint’s Series HDA pumps are crafted in the US, with durable, high-quality materials that allow for accurate and long-term functioning.

Careem honors outstanding captains in Riyadh

Careem held the first edition of its Captain’s Excellence Award Ceremony in Riyadh on Saturday. The event, which will be held annually, was the first-of-its-kind in the region and welcomed over 300 top-performing “captains” (Careem drivers) across the Kingdom. 

The captains were awarded based on different criteria such as: Captains with the highest number of trips, highest (customer-given) ratings and longest serving captains. Rewards were also handed out to captain ambassadors, i.e. those with the highest number of referrals and captains that were given a special shoutout on social media by customers for their dedication to their service. Several rewards were handed out along with the grand prize, a brand new car. 

Abdulla Elyas, chief people officer and co-founder of Careem, opened the event with an ode to the captains in attendance, thanking them for their service and commitment in driving impact through meaningful initiatives across the Kingdom. Some of these initiatives included the vaccination campaign in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, which helped more than 100,000 men, women and children across 17 cities get vaccinated in their own homes. Careem also collaborated with Bupa Arabia during Ramadan this year to donate clothes from customers to people in need, where over 180,000 donations were collected. 

Elyas also announced Careem’s partnership with Alwaleed Philanthropies (AP) in delivering the first installment of cars for the empowerment of people with special needs. The foundation, chaired by Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, will provide a number of cars over the course of seven years to men and women of the Society for Physically Disabled Adults (Harakia) after being trained.

“Our captains are the lifeblood of our business and we wanted to celebrate these men and women for helping us achieve our mission of simplifying and improving the lives of people in the Kingdom,” Elyas said. 

“We are proud to have 395,000 ‘captainahs’ (female drivers) and captains registered with us to date in Saudi Arabia, providing over 122 million rides. This ceremony is our small way to thank them for their service and reward them for the hard work they put in every day so that people have a safe way to get around. Without them, we wouldn’t be where we are today” 

Muaaed Al-Saeed, a representative from the Public Transport Authority (PTA), said: “We are excited to have you all; you have overcome each obstacle you were faced with in a short span of time and for that we are extremely proud.” 

He added: “On this occasion, I convey the regards of PTA President Dr. Rumaih Al-Rumaih. The participation of myself and Majed Al-Zahrani, PTA general manager, is proof of our support to all the captains.”
