Severe storms and hurricanes often lead to thousands of homes and businesses losing vital power, communication and water and wastewater services. Losing these services for long periods as utilities are restored can lead to safety issues, not to mention environmental concerns. That has forced consumers to pay attention to the importance of public utility systems and the emergency backup systems that keep them operating after a disaster.

Thompson Pump recently introduced the Model 6JSCE, a 6-inch solids handling pump equipped with the company’s Enviroprime System. The diesel-powered compressor-assisted solids handling pump is ideally used in sewer bypass, emergency response or any high-head/high-volume applications. With its heavy-duty cast iron construction and fast priming capabilities, the 6JSCE is designed for flows up to 2,680 gpm, and heads up to 190 feet, with maximum solids handling up to 3 inches. This end-suction centrifugal pump can dry-prime and re-prime automatically, and is equipped with the Enviroprime System that does not allow product blow-by of pumped materials.

“Our JSC series pumps are powerful, dependable, built for longevity and offer exceptional return on investment, and this pump leads the industry in municipal, construction and industrial applications,” says Chris Thompson, president of Thompson Pump.

The pump includes a 12-inch impeller that is dynamically balanced, nonclogging and enclosed. It is constructed out of 65-45-12 ductile iron with rear-equalizing vanes to reduce axial loading and prolong seal and bearing life. Its mechanical seal can be dry-running, grease or oil lubricated, with tungsten carbide rotating and silicon carbide stationary seal faces. It is a single inside mounted, nonpusher type with self-adjusting elastomeric bellows. Other components are 304 stainless steel and Viton. Its heavy-duty bearings are grease lubricated to carry both axial and radial loads, while its head has a rugged, back pull-out design, and is constructed from heavy-duty class 30 cast iron with a tapered bore design. It can handle solids up to 3 inches and offers a maximum operating speed of 2,000 rpm and maximum operating pressure of 82.3 psi.

“As with all our pumps, the 6JSCE provides the quality, performance and reliability people have come to expect to get the job done, every time,” says Thompson. 800-767-7310;
