Lyons Filter Company is a Colorado company that was established in 1998 to fill the need for experienced technical support for Western Filter Company’s water treatment systems. Due to the closure of the Denver Operations of Osmonics (Osmonics purchased Western Filter Company), the coagulation systems were no longer supported. To fill the need for technical support, Lyons Filter Company was founded through the partnership of two individuals with experience exceeding fifty years in the design and maintenance of these systems. Lyons Filter Company has since greatly expanded their operation to provide many products and services to the food, beverage, waste water, and industrial markets.

Notable designs he has worked on include ultrafiltration systems, carbon towers, media filters, gravity flow treatment systems, fluid and distribution storage including hygienic systems for companies located in South Africa, Mexico, Canada, and the United States. After managing the day-to-day operations of Lyons Filter Company, Steven purchased the company in 2016 and is currently the company’s president.
