TDI Company Member Thompson Pumps has launched their 6″ Rotary WellPoint pump recently, added to their line up of equipment.

The Thompson Pump rotary wellpoint pumps are the “original” rotary wellpoint pumps designed by the company’s co-founder, George Thompson, and trusted by contractors worldwide for decades, according to the manufacturer.

With unassisted priming and automatic re-priming, the 6RW pump features high air handling and large water volume capabilities – up to 1,400 gpm and heads up to 80 ft.; operating speeds up to 2,000 rpm; and a low HP engine for better fuel efficiency – an EPA Final Tier IV Isuzu engine (Model: 4LE2T), with diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) after treatment.

The 6RW pump is designed for wellpoint and sock dewatering applications, and can be used in place of a comparable 6 in. vacuum or piston pump, making it a cost-effective dewatering option.

“This 6 inch version was created, in part, due to the high demand to expand the rotary pump family’s dewatering capabilities,” said Chris Thompson, president of Thompson Pump and Manufacturing Company.”

There also is an 8RW and 12RW version. The pumps are equipped with abrasion and corrosion resistant parts, polyurethane rotors, and stainless steel wear plates that can handle intense industrial and plant applications.

Company debuted its 6 in. rotary wellpoint pump (Model: 6RW-DIS-4LE2T-X) at this year’s ConExpo-Con/AGG trade show in Las Vegas.

It is common to see Thompson’s pumps on some of the largest and most challenging projects in the world. Whether the job requires cleaning up an oil spill in Alaska or the Gulf of Mexico, dewatering a construction site for a nuclear power plant in Georgia, widening the Panama Canal, raising a submarine in the Atlantic, moving an east coast lighthouse, fighting western fires, controlling floods in the Midwest, handling an irrigation project in Africa or dealing with a tragic disaster in New York, Thompson Pump is there.
