The Zeta Library is orga­nized as a dig­i­tal post cat­a­log; each post con­tain­ing a spe­cif­ic piece of con­tent.  The Collections area locat­ed in the side­bar (or below on mobile devices) will allow you to  fil­ter the con­tent for the infor­ma­tion you are seek­ing.  You may also search our entire site con­tent by Applications, Markets, Benefits and oth­er cat­e­gories list­ed.  Library Posts will post a short descrip­tion and link to the cor­re­spond­ing doc­u­ment or media file. The Zeta Library is in the build­ing stage and more doc­u­ments are added dai­ly. Can’t find what you’re look­ing for?

Zeta Library Collections: FAQ’s

What is a Zeta Rod® System for Home Water Conditioning, and is it afford­able? The Zeta Rod® green tech­nol­o­gy offers a high­ly eco­nom­i­cal and envi­ron­men­tal­ly sound method of water con­di­tion­ing that uses the phys­i­cal and elec­tro­chem­i­cal effects of elec­tro­sta­t­ic fields to dis­perse bac­te­ria and nano-crys­tals that form biofilm and scale. A Zeta Rod sys­tem will nor­mal­ly pay for itself in chem­i­cal sav­ings (salts), water con­ser­va­tion (no back-flush­ing) and main­te­nance over a peri­od of months rather than years.

TVA Cooling Water Conservation Project

Abstract:  Zeta Rod® Water Management Systems were select­ed to be uti­lized as the water treat­ment sys­tem of choice for the recir­cu­lat­ing open-loop chillers, heat exchang­ers and cool­ing tow­ers for the two HVAC Central Plants at a U.S. Government Data Facility in the Southeastern United States. The pur­pose of the sys­tem was to deliv­er sig­nif­i­cant water con­ser­va­tion while pro­tect­ing crit­i­cal cool­ing equip­ment in a man­ner con­sis­tent with a well man­aged tra­di­tion­al chem­i­cal water treat­ment pro­gram. The Zeta Rod sys­tem was includ­ed as part of an Energy & Water Conservation Project imple­ment­ed by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA).

  • 22% less make up water used
  • 65% less waste water sent to the sew­er
  • 5.8 Million gal­lons of water saved dur­ing the first year

City of Tucson Crime Lab: Enhanced Water Conservation, Chemistry Reduction and Re-Use Opportunities for Open Loop HVAC Water Treatment

The appli­ca­tion of a Zeta Rod Water Management pro­gram allowed the Crime Lab to earn the LEED point under Water Efficiency and Innovation in Design. In par­tic­u­lar, a mea­sur­able non-reg­u­lat­ed water use sav­ings that is at least 10% of the total cal­cu­lat­ed base­line design (166,000 gal­lons for the Crime Lab) for reg­u­lat­ed (fix­tures) water use is eli­gi­ble for an exem­plary per­for­mance ID point under WE Credit 3.  This project con­ser­v­a­tive­ly doc­u­ment­ed sav­ings of  674% of the base­line cal­cu­la­tion for an annu­al total of 1.1 mil­lion gal­lons.
