Flo King BX3000 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 BX3000 Filter Systems


  • It weighs just over 20 lb (9 kg) yet offers a maximum flow rate of 3,000 gph (11,500 LPH). Can be used with one, two or even four filter cartridges. Like all Flo King pumps, the BX3000 prevents bath stratification by circulating to promote uniform temperature and chemical composition. Can also be used with carbon treatment accessories to remove organic impurities.


  • Available in CPVC, polypropylene, PVDF (Kynar), and stainless steel as pump materials of construction. Standard shaft is made of 303 stainless steel covered with Teflon shrink tubing. For solutions that aggressively attack stainless steel, a titanium-tip or Hastelloy-276C-alloy-tip shaft that threads onto the impeller is available on special-order basis.

Flow Rate:

  • 3000 gallons (11,500 liters) per hour at 60 Hz. A flow-rate reduction of about 18% is typical when operating at 50 Hz.


  • 27 feet (8.2 meters) of head pressure.


  • About 24 pounds (10.5 kg) in CPVC, depending on pump- body length.


Epoxy coated, TEFC, Thermally Protected. Electrical cord is 10 feet (3 meters) long. When ordering, specify one of the following:

  • Single phase, 1/3 HP (250 watt), 120/240 V, 6.0/3.0 A, 50/60 HZ, 2850/3450 RPM.
