Thompson Pump and Manufacturing Company debuted its 6RW-DIS-4LE2T-X 6-inch rotary wellpoint pump at the 2020 CONEXPO-Con/AGG trade show in Las Vegas.

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 feet; operating speeds up to 2,000 rpm; and a low-horsepower engine for better fuel efficiency. It uses an Isuzu  4LE2T Tier 4 final-compliant engine 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-inch 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,” says Chris Thompson, president of Thompson Pump and Manufacturing Company. 

There is also 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.
