Checkpoint Pumps and Systems unveil innovative solar-powered chemical pumping system
CheckPoint’s Series FXS Solar Injection System is designed to provide continuous chemical injection and precise flow control without the use of timers. Its Class 1, Division 2 motor ensures a high level of quality and safety, which is met by CheckPoint’s proprietary injection pump. Taking solar insolation factors into consideration, each system is sized to meet customer-specific application parameters, which extend battery and system longevity. The innovative design effectively eliminates gas emissions and reduces environmentally harmful waste often caused by inefficient battery management. “We have introduced the Series FXS Solar Injection System into the market in direct response to the declining oil and gas market,” said Cameron Marland, Managing Director, Checkpoint Pumps and Systems FZE. “We believe this advanced product answers the call for an environmentally conscious solution without deviation from our decisive quality standards,” he said. “CheckPoint’s R&D department has spent considerable amounts of energy to produce what we believe is the most efficient solar injection package today. Despite the industry’s current economic conditions, we have developed a superior product made for the current climate and designed to help sustain the oil and gas industry,” said Mr. Marland. The system’s portable design is highly durable but lightweight for easy assembly. The panel and pump are prewired to simplify installation and reduce setup times. A front-access enclosure houses the system’s battery at a height which provides ground clearance and ensures easy access for field operators. The system-integrated base includes a pump mount and tripod legs, which together ensure a stable structural foundation that can be secured to the ground with the included stakes or bolted to an existing pad. CheckPoint’s FXS pump can accommodate multiple plunger diameters ranging from 1/8” to 1/2”, offering a wide variety of flow rates and pressures. The pump can deliver up to 47.24 USG/D (178.82 L/D) and reliably injects into pressures up to 12,000 PSIG (827.37 BARG). Since its inception in 1993, CheckPoint has expanded its products and operations globally. A wide geographical footprint paired with streamlined operations allows CheckPoint to facilitate the needs of the world’s largest industrial clients while maintaining attentive service qualities offered by smaller companies. CheckPoint is committed to safety, environmental and quality assurance.
