A Pump is Born… 1

 

Editor’s Note:

Sometimes you get lucky enough to be part of either a new program, or in this case, getting 2 new pumps 6 days before Christmas!  All I can say, looking at our new hardware/pumps?  They are just damn pretty!  These happen to be the newest generation/iteration of what is IMO the best and sturdiest pump design on the market.  I just love these beasts!  And NO- I’m NOT getting paid to say that! 🙂

I just admire sleekness and the equine confirmation that exudes from this pump.  Clean lines, smaller footprint, better non-fatiguable materials, and very SOLID tech/rep support.

Maybe it won’t inspire me as much went it’s had a few blood spills, or some wear- but what is very clear here?  This is a workhorse, with  a 90 minute battery life- for power outages ( in other words a better backup system then the Atlanta International Airport).

Follow along on this photo-essay that represents a half-a-day adventure getting this puppy built.

A shout out to Chris,  Blake, Renee, and Jacquie!  These were the architects that got the pumps here after an extended period of time.  No one quit!

It’s NOT  E=MC2- BUT it is a nice on-the-fly diagram 🙂

 

 

Thanks Jacquie!   She is a pittbull and played a key role in making this happen before New Years 🙂

 

 

It’s not a people mover- but I wish we had one leading from Heather’s office to ours?

 

 

Meet Blake.  This guy is a mahine.  Reminds me of Data (from StarTrek 2nd Generation).  Very Very knowledgeable, and knows his stuff!
