BX5000 Filter System
The BX5000 provides a maximum flow rate of 5000 gallons (19,000 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″) enable use of the BX5000 in tanks with varying solution levels and depths.
The BX5000 comes complete, preassembled, ready to operate and includes the items shown in the labeled photo (right). For best results in most metal finishing solutions, use the BX5000 with our Permacore Magnum (PMCA) reusable or FK50 Poly-Spun Disposable filter cartridges in the appropriate length.
