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.

PNU, Dell EMC certify first batch of female data scientists

Princess Nourah bint Abdulrahman University (PNU), the largest university for women in the world, has partnered with Dell EMC to train and certify Saudi Arabia’s first batch of female data scientists.

In line with Saudi Vision 2030 to promote a knowledge-based economy, PNU partners with national and international organizations to provide degrees and certificates for Saudi female students and graduates. 

The College of Computer and Information Sciences provides a number of certifications and technical training courses in its curriculum for three bachelor degrees — computer science, information systems and information technology. As a member of Dell EMC’s External Research and Academic Alliance Program, the college has successfully trained and certified 57 female data science and big data analytics students this semester with an additional 103 students certified in cloud infrastructure. 

The university also successfully introduced the VMware Install, Configure and Manage course as an elective training course for senior students. 

Auhood Alfaries, dean of College of Computer and Information Sciences, PNU, said: “Building a comprehensive curriculum to cover the essential knowledge area for the computing disciplines and to equip our students with the skills required for the future workplace is a priority for Princess Nourah bint Abdulrahman University. We are proud to be a leading university to actively promote the data-skilled taskforce in the Kingdom through the introduction of industry-relevant certifications and trainings. 

“We strive to continually evolve to contribute toward building a knowledge-based economy, in alignment with Saudi Vision 2030, through strategic academic partnerships such as the Dell EMC External Research and Academic Alliance program which plays a crucial role in effectively developing our students into tomorrow’s workforce.” 

A recent study by Dell Technologies titled “Realizing 2030: A Divided Vision of the Future” highlighted the lack of workforce readiness as the leading barrier in the Middle East to becoming a successful digital business in 2030, further emphasizing the need for skill development among existing employees and future generations. 

Mohammed Amin, senior vice president and regional manager, Middle East, Turkey and Africa, Dell EMC, said: “The unrelenting pace of digital transformation in the marketplace is creating new challenges for all of us where organizations as well as individuals are increasingly realizing that investing in workforce readiness and the development of new skills is key to future success and competitive differentiation. 

“We congratulate Princess Nourah bint Abdulrahman University on this wonderful achievement and look forward to continuing to work with them to advance the technical education of women in the region.”

Marwa Zaghow, senior manager, External Research and Academic Alliance, Europe, Middle East, and Africa, Dell EMC, said: “The Dell EMC External Research and Academic Alliance program collaborates with innovative colleges and universities like Princess Nourah bint Abdulrahman University to effectively contribute to the regional priority of developing IT skillsets among the youth and specifically women.”
