The new Compact pump series boast the benefits of a smaller compact size, lighter weight, fewer parts, less maintenance and lower price. The Thompson Compact pump is 35 percent smaller and 20 percent lighter but offers the same performance as a standard size pump with 24-hour run time fuel tank. Available in the most common diesel-drive portable pump sizes of 4 and 6 inches, the Compact series offers an economical alternative to similar sized portable pumps – a significant savings compared to standard compressor-assisted pumps. The Compact pump series includes the Enviroprime system, which keeps the pumpage from discharging into the environment. It also has automatic start/stop and Silent Knight sound attenuation. 800.767.7310, thompsonpump.com
