FAQ

HOW TO IDENTIFY YOUR EXISTING LOW-PROFILE BXL2500
The Low-Profile BXL2500 is available in different body lengths and materials of construction to satisfy the many chemical solutions, temperatures, and tank variables used in metal finishing. Performance and price vary accordingly.

low profile body lengths

Explanation: The "weep hole" and impeller must be submerged at all times, or the pump will not operate. Like the propeller of an outboard boat motor, the Impeller spins at high speed and cannot perform its task without liquid contact. Solution should be at least 3 inches (7.62 cm) above the lower weep hole on the BXL2500.

IS SERIAL NUMBER AVAILABLE?
First, check to see if the Flo King Serial Number Label on the motor is still visible.

serial number location

If the Serial Number label is no longer available or is illegible, follow the instructions below.

Note - Some Serial Numbers Untraceable: We are unable to trace some Serial Numbers, particularly older ones, because they were entered in a now-outdated database, so it is always a good idea to provide the information requested below.

MEASURE PUMP-BODY LENGTH
See the dimensional drawing. Measure the "A" Dimension (from bottom of Pump Base to bottom of Swiveling Impeller Housing). This area is highlighted in yellow.

Then refer to the chart below to determine if you have the BXL2500-8, BXL2500-10, BXL2500-12 or BXL2500-14.

"A" Dimension Pump-Body Length
10-3/4 inches (28 cm) BXL2500-8
12-3/4 inches (32 cm) BXL2500-10
14-3/4 inches (38 cm) BXL2500-12
16-3/4 inches (43 cm) BXL2500-14

* Stainless Steel BXL2500 available only in 12" pump-body length.

MEASURE LENGTH OF MOTOR BASE
We offer two Motor Bases for the Flo King BXL2500.

The Standard Motor Base can be used on tank mounting surfaces less than 3-1/2 inches wide (8.89 cm). The Long Motor Base is used for tank mounting surfaces 3-1/2 to 6-1/2 inches wide (8.89 to 16.51 cm). Belt sizes differ.

DETERMINE PUMP MATERIAL OF CONSTRUCTION
Check the color of the pump body that is submerged in solution. The two most common materials are CPVC (gray in color) and polypro (white). We also offer stainless steel and Kynar.

MOTOR REQUIREMENTS
The standard BXL2500 motor is single phase, 0.33 hp, 120 or 240 volt. Specify voltage when ordering.

The BXL2500 is not available with 3-phase motor.

SOLUTION INFORMATION
To ensure that the proper internal metal-shaft material is provided to duplicate the existing pump, what type of solution, pH and temperature are involved?

USAGE
Do you want to use the pump to filter the solution (with filter cartridges attached) or just for agitation/recirculation (without filter cartridges attached)?

If the pump will be used strictly for agitation/recirculation, a PSA (Pump Strainer Adapter) is required to protect the Impeller from damage due to any foreign objects that might be in solution. The PSA is installed on the pump intake.
