BX3000 Filter System
The BX3000 provides a maximum flow rate of 3000 gallons (11,500 liters) per hour. Use it stationary on one tank or move it from tank to tank. Multiple body lengths (8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 and 20 inch) enable use of the BX3000 in tanks with varying solution levels and depths.
   The BX3000 comes complete, preassembled, ready to operate and includes the items shown in the labeled photo below. For best results in most metal finishing solutions, use the BX3000 with our Permacore Magnum Reusable or Poly-Spun Disposable filter cartridges in the appropriate length.

BX3000 Specifications
Pump: 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. Click here for help selecting material of construction.
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.
Pressure: 27 feet (8.2 meters) of head pressure.
Weight: About 24 pounds (10.5 kg) in CPVC, depending on pump- body length
Motor: Epoxy coated, TEFC, Thermally Protected. Available in single phase, 1/3 HP (250 watt), 120/240 V, 6.0/3.0 A, 50/60 HZ, 2850/3450 RPM. Electrical cord is 10 feet long (3 meters). Contact us for information on 3-phase motors.

BX3000 Pump-Body Length
All Flo King pumps are manufactured in different pump-body lengths to accommodate the freeboard (distance from top of tank to solution surface) and, in many cases, tank depth. To ensure priming and proper operation, solution must be 3 inches (8 cm) or more above the Weep Hole on the BX3000 pump body. The Impeller is located just beneath the Weep Hole and must be submerged in solution for the pump to operate. See this link for photo explanation.

Specify length of pump body when ordering. If you are not sure which length is required, supply all of the information requested at this link and we will recommend a system.

Or see this link for do-it-yourself guidance.

BX3000 Dimensions
To determine the pump-body length of a BX3000 you already have, measure the "A" Dimension (from bottom of Motor Base, where pump is mounted on tank, to center of Discharge Port, where solution is expelled from pump). Then see table below for corresponding pump model.

"A" Dimension Pump-Body Length*
8-3/4 inches (22 cm) BX3000-8
10-3/4 inches (27 cm) BX3000-10
12-3/4 inches (32 cm) BX3000-12
14-3/4 inches (37 cm) BX3000-14
16-3/4 inches (43 cm) BX3000-16
18-3/4 inches (48 cm) BX3000-18
20-3/4 inches (53 cm) BX3000-20

* Stainless steel BX3000 available only in 14" pump-body length.

In-Tank Space Requirements
Most customers use the BX3000 with a 45-Degree High-Flow Elbow and Outlet Extension installed on the Discharge Port, where solution is expelled from the pump. As shown here, about 6-1/2 x 10-1/2 inches (16.5 x 26.7 cm) of in-tank space is required for this arrangement. The Elbow and Outlet Extension allow you to direct solution flow where desired. The Outlet Extension also streamlines flow from the High-Flow Elbow.

BX3000 with Elbow in Tank

Without 45-Degree Elbow and Outlet Extension attached, about 6-1/2 x 7 inches (16.5 x 17.8 cm) of in-tank space is needed. See photo below.

Below is a view of the Motor and Motor Base.

   The BX3000 has a Swiveling Impeller Housing that rotates 360 degrees, allowing you to position the Discharge Port, Elbow and Outlet Extension in any position.

  When used for filtration, the BX3000 is almost always used with a Double Cartridge Holder to hold two filter cartridges at once instead of just one. A Quad Cartridge Holder to hold four filter cartridges at once is also available. See photos below.

Double and Quad Cartridge Holders

  The BX3000 includes a Universal Bracket to secure the pump on tank mounting surfaces up to 3 inches (7.6 cm) thick and 7-3/4 inches (19.6 cm) wide. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to loosen the two screws, slide the Universal Bracket in or out to the desired position, then tighten the screws.
