Pyxis is a leader in providing innovative, engineered, turn-key water treatment systems that successfully solve specific water quality problems. The goal is to provide the finest water purification systems on the market today.
Dedicated to the concept of environmentally friendly water quality solutions, Pyxis Water Systems specializes in filtration, ozone and aeration as primary methods of water treatment. Where ever possible natural treatment methods are planned with conservation and economy the goals. Natural systems are often the most economical and most efficient, saving customers money in the process of protecting the environment.
Pyxis is the first company on the West Coast to offer advanced filtration systems that provides results equivalent to what previously could only be expected from membranes including removal of Giardia and Cryptosporidium. This system is based on technologies that use low pressure providing for energy savings that are substantial. These filter systems have received EPA approval for their ability to remove phosphorous from waste water streams. When combined with ozone, this filter system will also meet the most stringent requirements for drinking water where total removal of virus and bacteria is required.
Pyxis also offers solutions to industries confronted with discharge limitations and increasing discharge fees. Ozone and filtration can effectively solve problems and in some cases offer complete recycling with zero discharge. Metal finishers in particular can benefit from technologies offered by advanced oxidation and advanced filtration. These
systems together can remove copper, iron, cyanide, arsenic and other
regulated substances as well as suspended solids down to very or non
Ozone is a naturally occurring form of oxygen created when three molecules of regular oxygen (O2) break apart to form two ozone molecules (O3). This activated oxygen is the second most powerful disinfectant available, 1.5 times more potent than chlorine (and 3000 times faster acting). Unlike chlorine, ozone leaves no harmful by products, reverting back to simple oxygen in thirty minutes or less.
Pyxis has developed water treatment systems based on ozone gas generation, aeration, and filtration. These methods create the most reliable, effective and environmentally friendly systems using state-of-the-art equipment.
