Flo King BXL5000 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 BXL5000 Filter Systems


  • Like the BXL2500, this unit features a low-profile design to avoid above-tank obstructions. But at a maximum 5000 gph (19,000 LPH), it offers twice the flow rate. Accepts full complement of accessories, including Slide-In Filter Cartridge Adapter for changing filter cartridges without moving pump from tank. Low-profile belt-drive units are used where above-tank clearance is limited.


  • 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. A 2-inch-long (5-cm) titanium-tip or Hastelloy-276C-alloy-tip shaft that threads onto the impeller is available on a special-order basis for solutions that aggressively attack stainless steel.

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.
