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.

Ascott debuts in Africa with Kwarleyz Residence

The Ascott Limited has cemented its footprint on the African continent with the opening of its first property in Accra, the capital of Ghana. Kwarleyz Residence, which is managed by Ascott, will be the first upscale international -class serviced residence to enter the flourishing Ghanaian market.
Thomas Wee, Ascott’s deputy managing director for the Middle East, Africa, Turkey and India, said: “Ascott has been managing world-class serviced residences globally for over 30 years. The opening of our first property in Africa, Kwarleyz Residence, enables our worldwide network of corporate clients and the growing international travelers to experience Ascott’s award-winning hospitality on another continent.
“Africa is the world’s second fastest-growing economy after Asia and we see great potential in the region’s hospitality market. Africa’s huge economic growth is fueled by massive infrastructure development, favorable investment policies, and a young population.
With our strong expertise in hospitality management, Ascott aims to set the benchmark in the region by offering business and leisure travelers world-class extended stay accommodation and superior customer service.”
Wee added: “In addition to Kwarleyz Residence, we have secured a contract to manage Ascott 1 Oxford Street which will open in the heart of Accra in 2019.”
Located in the upscale airport residential district, Kwarleyz Residence is surrounded by embassies and the headquarters of gold mining companies. About a five-minute drive from the Kotoka International Airport, the property is within easy access to the Marina Mall at Airport City and Tema Industrial City, via the motorway.
Vincent Miccolis, Ascott’s regional general manager for the Middle East, Africa and Turkey, said: “We are proud to partner with Wonda World Estates to bring the first-of-its-kind hospitality offering to the Ghanaian capital and introduce sophisticated living in Accra with the opening of Kwarleyz Residence.”
Nana Kwame Bediako, president for the Kwarleyz Group of companies, which includes Wonda World Estates, said: “We see this collaborative project with our colleagues at Ascott as another example of Wonda World Estates, Kwarleyz Group, Cola Group and Kensington Residential Partners showcasing, either individually or as a collective, a commitment to the improvement of emerging markets across the African landscape.”
The 40-unit serviced residence provides a variety of studio and one- to three-bedroom apartments.
The property includes facilities such as a restaurant, coffee lounge, sky bar, rooftop garden and basement parking. Guests can relax and rejuvenate in the gymnasium, outdoor pool or spa.
The International Monetary Fund forecasts that Africa’s economy will be the second fastest growing in the world with an annual growth rate of 4.3 percent from 2016 to 2020. Ghana is ranked Africa’s fifth most attractive investment destination. Its foreign direct investment increased by nine percent to a record $3.5 billion in 2016.
