Flo King BX5000 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.

  • Excellent for larger tanks or anywhere aggressive agitation is desired. Operates with 3/4-hp motor and pumps a maximum of 5,000 gph (19,000 LPH) yet is still portable. Like other Flo King units, it is available in CPVC, polypropylene, stainless steel and PVDF (Kynar), and can be used with reusable or disposable filter cartridges. Available for single-phase or three-phase electrical service.

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:

  • 5000 gallons (19,000 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 29 pounds (13 kg) in CPVC, depending on pump body length.
