Water and Wastewater Treatment

PAX Scientific founded PAX Water Technologies to market PAX’s municipal water and wastewater treatment solutions. PAX Water’s first entry into the market was an efficient mixing system for use in municipal water storage tanks.

Water utilities face a range of challenges in maintaining water quality. Water quality deterioration in storage tanks is caused by underutilization, thermal stratification and inlet/outlet pipe configuration. Under these conditions, especially in the thermally-isolated upper layers of a tank, water ages and can completely lose its disinfectant residual. This disinfectant is often the final barrier protecting consumers from microbial contaminants and harmful bacteria.

PAX Water developed the industry’s most powerful and efficient mixing system. The PAX Water Mixer can circulate 10 million gallons with the same energy footprint as three 100-watt light bulbs. The system's “Lily” impeller fully blends new water entering the tank with the water already sitting inside to thoroughly distribute disinfectant and keep water temperature consistent throughout the tank.

PAX Water Mixers are the most specified solution in North America and are installed in thousands of municipal water systems in the US and internationally.
