Thompson Pump and Manufacturing Co. debuted its 6-in. rotary wellpoint pump at ConExpo-Con/Agg 2020 in Las Vegas.

The Thompson Pump rotary wellpoint pumps are the original rotary wellpoint pumps designed decades ago by the company’s co-founder, George Thompson.

Thompson Pump says that with unassisted priming and automatic re-priming, the 6RW pump (model: 6RW-DIS-4LE2T-X) features high air handling and large water volume capabilities – up to 1,400 gallons per minute and heads up to 80 ft., with operating speeds up to 2,000 rpm.

The low-HP engine is an EPA Final Tier 4 Isuzu (model: 4LE2T), with diesel oxidation catalyst 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.

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

There is also an 8RW and 12RW version of the pump, which are equipped with abrasion- and corrosion-resistant parts, polyurethane rotors and stainless steel wear plates, and designed to handle intense industrial and plant applications, according to the company.

Thompson Pump is a family-owned company and is currently celebrating its 50th year in business. It is a full-service manufacturer and provider of pumps, pumping equipment and engineering expertise for bypass pumping, dewatering, mining and flood control.
