In underdeveloped countries, water is the first step out of poverty. Many countries lack the capital and ability to carry out infrastructure projects for their communities. Mid-Western LLC's newest compact hydraulic rotary drill offers a simple-to-operate, powerful, and cost effective drill available for sale worldwide.
Water: it is the key to our survival. It is the most abundant compound on the planet; with the average human body containing from 55% to 78% water, the body requires between one and seven liters of water per day to avoid dehydration. Commercially, 70% of fresh water goes toward agriculture; in the United States, the average family uses 200 to 400 gallons of water per day.
Worldwide, 1 in 8 people don’t have access to safe drinking water. Many people equate a lack of water with a lack of rain. Though true, it does not offer the entire picture. In Africa, many villages cannot use their nearby river as a water source; animals defecate in the water and when there is a flood, filth from surrounding villages is carried and drained straight into the river. Consequently, Africans who rely on the river as their primary water source are frequently crippled with illnesses such as diarrhea, intestinal parasites, and cholera. As a result, educational efforts are quelled; students who are too sick, cannot go to school.
The lack of water threatens life, destroys opportunity, and severely undermines human dignity. Water, therefore, is the first step out of poverty. Unfortunately, many countries lack the capital and ability to carry out water infrastructure projects for their communities.
Enter Mid-Western LLC, a producer of pneumatic drills and hydraulic drills, located in O’Fallon, Missouri. Mid-Western has been manufacturing a line of compact, small footprint drill rigs since the early 2000’s. Their newest Hydraulic Rotary (HR) drill rig line is designed for cost effective water-well drilling solutions. A typical water well drill is extremely large in size and can cost upwards of 1 million dollars. Mid-Western has designed a compact, powerful, hydraulic rotary drill at a fraction of the price. The Mid-Western HR drill can effectively drill a shallow borehole at an average rate of 1 foot per minute through any ground condition, including rock. Moreover, the well drilling equipment rigs are extremely easy to use and can be operated by a single person. They are great for small crews or anyone wanting to run a team for half the cost. The complete package price of a Mid-Western water well drilling rig costs less than $100k. The low price point for the Mid-Western water well rig drastically reduces the driller’s cost per foot. This brings affordable water to many underdeveloped countries across the world. The Mid-Western water well drilling rig is being offered for sale worldwide and they have already sold units in Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, Central America, and South America.
In addition, to providing hope and water infrastructure in underdeveloped countries, Mid Western also offers consumers geothermal alternatives for heating and cooling, as well as a wide variety of specialty equipment, including jack leg drills and sinker drills.
