Flo King Accessories
Flo King offers the following unique accessories for special applications. Click the links shown if you need more detailed information on these products or their associated parts. Many of these products are available in both CPVC (gray in color) and polypropylene (white). Some are also available in PVDF (Kynar) and stainless steel.

Slide-In Filter Cartridge Adapter

Slide-In Filter Cartridge Adapter (SIFCA). In most cases, users change filter cartridges by leaning back the Flo King pump or removing it from the tank. However, when using the larger, heavier models, or where access is difficult, the SIFCA allows you to change filter cartridges without moving the pump at all. Lift to disconnect, lower to reconnect. No tools required. Compatible with the BX1200, BX3000, BX5000, BXL2500 and BXL5000 models. See Bulletin 19.

Adjustable Flow Restrictor on BX1200

 

Adjustable Flow RestrictorAdjustable Flow Restrictor. This device allows you to reduce the flow rate and agitation of a Flo King pump to a certain extent if desired. Available in 45- and 90-degree configurations. Simply tighten the thumbscrew to reduce the flow or leave wide open for maximum output. See Bulletin 32.

 

Kurt Tube on BX1200

Kurt Tube HorizontalKurt Tube. The Kurt Tube is a sparger accessory that provides a highly uniform, unidirectional source of agitation that can be directed toward the workpiece or other tank area. Although most customers use the standard 45- or 90-degree elbow on the pump Discharge Port, the Kurt Tube is sometimes preferred for special applications and can be positioned horizontally or vertically as needed See Bulletin 18.7.

In-Tank Floating Skimmer

 

In-Tank Floating Skimmer. Removes floating particulates and lightweight surface oil to help prevent voids in the finish. Solution is drawn by vacuum through slots on the polypropylene Skimmer Trash Trap and through the Skimmer Head, which floats on the surface. A filter cartridge removes the contaminants, then solution is discharged from the pump to create agitation. Note: Skimmer is not intended for heavy oil or large volumes of oil. See Bulletin 22. Also see Skimmer Parts photos and Skimmer Instructions.

Trash Trap on BX1200

 

Trash Trap. When using a Flo King for filtration, the filter cartridge is totally immersed in solution. Most customers simply attach a bare filter cartridge to the pump, and nothing else is required. However, in some cases, solids may slough off the cartridge either because of their size (large) or disposition (do not adhere well). The Trash Trap surrounds the filter cartridge and keeps dirt, metal shavings, and other large particles in the canister—and out of the tank. See Bulletin 18.5.

Transfer Adapter Kit

 

Transfer Adapter Kit. To pump solution from one tank to another, install the TA kit on a Flo King pump, then connect a hose to the Discharge Port. The kit includes a Threaded Adapter, two Male Adapters, a Bottom Strainer and 36 inches (91.4 cm) of Pipe. You can add or subtract pipe length as necessary. The TA Kit can be used with the BX1200, BX3000, BX5000, BXL2500 and BXL5000. Important: In order to prime pump, solution must be above Weep Hole and Impeller on pump body when transfer begins. Once pump is primed, solution can be removed to within about 1/4 inch (0.65 cm) of tank bottom. See Bulletin 32 and Bulletin 36. Also see TA Kit Instructions.

Mid-Tank Pumping Kit

 

Mid-Tank Pumping Kit. This assembly allows you to pump solution from deeper in the tank to help maintain consistent solution temperature and chemical composition. For example, during cold weather, solution may be significantly cooler near the bottom of deep tanks than at the surface. Kit includes Threaded Adapter, Male Adapter, Coupling, Strainer, and 36 inches (91.4 cm) of Pipe. You can add or subtract pipe length as necessary. Important: Solution must be above Weep Hole and Impeller on pump body or Flo King will not prime. See parts on Bulletin 32.

HCAS on BX1200

 

Horizontal Cartridge Adapter-SpecialHorizontal Cartridge Adapter-Special (HCAS). Some tanks are simply too shallow to use a filter cartridge in the conventional vertical position. The HCAS allows you to position the filter cartridge horizontally near the tank bottom. Just insert the HCAS directly into the pump, attach a cartridge, and tighten the Filter Screws. If needed, the HCAS can also be used with a Double Cartridge Holder to hold two cartridges at once. See Bulletin 32.

Horizontal Cartridge Adapter Kit

 

Horizontal Cartridge Adapter Kit. Includes a Horizontal Cartridge Adapter (HCA), Threaded Adapter, two Male Adapters, and 36 inches (91.4 cm) of Schedule 40 pipe. You can add or subtract pipe length as necessary. HCA Kit can be used for bottom filtration or to filter while transferring solution from one tank to another. Important: In order to prime Flo King, solution must be above Weep Hole and Impeller on pump body when solution transfer begins. Once pump is primed, solution can be removed to within a few inches of tank bottom. See parts at Bulletin 32 and Bulletin 36.

 

Floductors on BX1200 Floductor NozzleFloductors. Flo King systems are built to provide high flow rate and solution agitation—even without the aid of spargers. However, where piping is desired to agitate a more selective area of the tank or to agitate from the bottom up, for example, tapered Floductor nozzles are available. Use a pump with Floductors exclusively to agitate solution (as shown at left) or to filter, too. Important: Floductors do not increase the flow rate or agitation of the Flo King pump; rather, they redistribute the flow to the desired area of the tank. See Bulletin 23.
