Flo King BX1200 Filter Systems

Equipment Overview | Filter Pump Industries / Penguin Pump | Process Technology


Flo King offers several pump models, as shown below. The flow rate is given in gph (gallons per hour) and LPH (liters per hour). These units can be used as filter systems (with cartridges attached) or just as pumps (without filter cartridges). All employ the same principle of operation and can be used to pump, filter, agitate, and carbon treat.

Selection should be based on a variety of considerations, including: tank size; degree of agitation desired; available space in tank; clearance above tank; temperature; and chemical composition.

Please call for accesories or special applications.

Flo King BX1200 Filter Systems


  • Lightweight, high-flow-rate, easy-to-use system is the industry workhorse. Features a 1/12th-hp (60-watt) motor and requires only a 4-in.-square (10-cm-sq) area of in-tank space yet provides vigorous agitation and a maximum flow rate of 1200 gph (4500 LPH). Remove filter cartridge and insert carbon-containing attachment to treat for organics.


  • Available in CPVC, polypropylene, PVDF (Kynar), and stainless steel as pump materials of construction. Standard shaft is 303 stainless steel covered with Teflon heat-shrink tubing. As a precaution for aggressive solutions that may attack SS, a titanium shaft is available for pump-body lengths of 6, 8, 10, & 12 inches and a Hastelloy-C276-alloy shaft is available for pump-body lengths of 6, 8, 10, 12 & 14 inches.

Flow Rate:

  • 1200 gallons (4500 liters) per hour at 60 Hz. A flow-rate reduction of about 18% is typical when operating at 50 Hz.


  • 12 feet (3.6 meters) of head pressure.


  • About 10 pounds (4.5 kg) in CPVC, depending on pump- body length.


Epoxy coated, 1/12th hp (60 watt), single phase, 3000 RPM, TEFC, thermally protected. Electrical cord is 10 feet (3 meters) long. When ordering, specify one of the following three motors:

  • 115 volt, 60 Hz, 2.6 A
  • 115 volt, 50/60 Hz, 2.0 A
  • 230 volt, 50/60 Hz, 1.3A
