Centerline Manufacturing, Winnsboro, Texas, proudly announces the delivery of its first six hydraulic mud pumps. The first two pumps, duplexes, were an international sale, delivered to the fifth generation drilling company McAllister Water Wells in Saskatchewan, Canada. A mono pump was then delivered to Carolina Geo-thermal Services owner Charlie Stokes of Mt. Pleasant, S.C., followed by two more mono pumps to Richard Hansen, a geothermal drilling contractor in Iowa. The sixth pump, a duplex, was delivered to Jimmy Williams of Williams Water Well Service of Ft. Worth, Texas.
Centerline introduced the pump prototype in December 2000 at the annual NGWA Exposition in Las Vegas and at the Texas Ground Water Association convention in Waco. The first production models were displayed and demonstrated at the South Atlantic Jubilee in Myrtle Beach, S.C., in July 2001. New deliveries continue weekly with production now in full swing. The new hydraulic drive mud pumps incorporate several new features, and more information can be found at www.centerlinemanufacturing.com.
