Mandeville, LA, USA – February 15, 2012

In its first entry year, CheckPoint Pumps & Systems®, a leading provider of petroleum production solutions, has been shortlisted by the esteemed Pump Industry Awards in two categories: Manufacturer of the Year and Environmental Contribution of the Year.

As a nominee of the Manufacturer of the Year accolade, CheckPoint manufactures a full line of pneumatic, electric, and solar chemical injection pumps for the oil and gas industry, as well as specializing in engineering and fabricating custom package solutions. All CheckPoint products are centered on quality, accuracy, and reliability and are backed by unparalleled service and technical support to maximize productivity, efficiency, and long-term ROI for clients.

CheckPoint’s intelliJECT Solar, nominated for its environmental contribution, is a completely self-sustaining solar-powered system, requiring no outside power source besides the sun. An extremely efficient pump, closed loop automation, real-time flow feedback and power management features that override human error keep the unit running non-stop – solar batteries are not perpetually depleted and stored at a warehouse, creating a potential eco-hazard, and the accurate use of expensive chemicals reduces the change for spillage, or a H2S leak shutdown. The intelliJECT Solar can be configured for any type of goal seeking technology related to the chemical injection industry.

CheckPoint CEO Andrew C. Elliott says, “CheckPoint has remained on the cutting edge because our product development team is directly involved with our customers at the field level. We understand their pain points, and that has always driven us to solutions that reduce operating costs and improve productivity. But from the beginning, we realized that we could also play an important role in helping our customers significantly reduce their carbon footprint. I’m especially excited about our new intelliJECT Solar chemical injection system because it delivers such a clear–cut positive environmental impact without compromising performance or reliability. To be nominated for PI Awards in two separate categories is something we are very proud of, because it shows that all the hard work our team does is being recognized not only by our customers but by our peers as well.”
