For the first time at any exhibition, Thompson Pump and Manufacturing Company will feature its emergency back lift station at the Water Environment Federation’s Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC) 2019. The company will have the backup lift station and one other heavy-duty portable diesel-powered pump on hand. As one of the nation’s leading manufacturers of these pumps, Thompson Pump will attend the WEFTEC September 21-25 in Chicago. WEFTEC is the largest conference of its kind in North America, offering education and training in industry-leading technologies like those of Thompson Pump.
Thompson Pump will feature its industry-leading Emergency Backup Lift Station Standby System – 6” compressor-assisted solids handling pump (Model 6JSCE-DJDS-45T-UC). This end-suction centrifugal pump has the ability to dry-prime and re-prime automatically, and is equipped with a sound attenuation canopy and UL-142 double walled fuel tank. The diesel-driven backup pump is quickly replacing generator backup systems as the preferred contingency plan. This system continues pumping despite power loss or primary pumping failures, and acts as the primary pumping system during maintenance or repairs.
