Thompson Pump and Manufacturing‘s Arctic Knight cold-weather package keeps a diesel-driven pump running in climates as cold as 40 degrees below zero Fahrenheit. The system eliminates the problems associated with operating pumps in cold climates, including frozen liquids in the pump, cracked pump housings, and engine start-up troubles. The Arctic Knight works via a self-contained, thermostat controlled heating system that operates from the on-board fuel supply to regulate and maintain the temperature inside the enclosure. To prevent liquids from freezing when the pump is off, an auto-drain feature drains the fluid inside the pump and piping system. Unlike conventional automatic drain valves, this system does not require external electrical power to operate. Automatic throttle control allows the engine to warm-up and cool-down, reducing engine wear.
