Diesel Backup Pumps

Thompson Pump Emergency Backup Lift Station Standby System

Independent backup pumps are quickly replacing generators as the ideal contingency plan. The Thompson Backup System, permanently installed standby units continue pumping, despite power loss or primary pump failures. They can also act as the primary pumping system during maintenance or repairs. Thompson Enviroprime System® pumps are available in sizes 3" to 18" and can easily handle flows up to 11, 000 gallons-per-minute (GPM) and solids to 4.25" in diameter. The exclusive Enviroprime System®, unlike other automatic priming systems, actively prevents product blow by or pumpage – sewage, debris or chemicals – from discharging onto the ground, keeping the environment clean and safe. Thompson Backup System pumps are also available with Oil-less Vacuum Technology.
