Elix® High-Throughput Water Purification Systems

Connected, sustainable central pure water solutions for up to
9000 L daily

At the heart of your total pure water solution, the Elix® High-Throughput system serves as the nerve center for the entire water purification chain, and provides total control of all functions, operating parameters and standard accessory components.

Elix® 40/80/120/150 systems comprise several water purification technologies, including complete pretreatment; advanced reverse osmosis (RO) and Evolutive Reject Adjustment (E.R.A.™) water usage and quality optimization; Elix® electrodeionization (EDI) technology; and treatment by bactericidal UV lamp.

The combination of these complementary purification technologies ensures the production of optimum constant-quality analytical-grade water.

Features & Benefits

  • Power – Elix® High-Throughput systems are designed to deliver the highest pure water quality for your regular laboratory applications and instrument feed — up to 9000 L daily, with a range of systems providing flow rates of 40, 80, 120 or 150 L/h. 
  • Communication – In line with the evolution in today's labs, Elix® High-Throughput systems offer users flexible monitoring with connectivity at the heart of their water purification system. Authorized users can access system data via computer, tablet or smartphone 24/7.
  • R&D Excellence – Cutting-edge, complementary water purification technologies make it all possible. Full Progard® pretreatment, advanced reverse osmosis, E.R.A.™ (Evolutive Reject Adjustment) technology, and patented Elix® module electrodeionization produce the best pure water — efficiently, economically and sustainably.
  • Ease of Use – With Elix® High-Throughput systems, you can see all important information on the large color touch screen — water production, storage, dispensing, consumable use, alarms/alerts — and easy, step-by-step instructions from a wizard whenever you need to change a consumable.
