Zeta Nanocera strategic alliance announced

Nanocera & Zeta logosJune 10, 2016
Tucson, Arizona —  Zeta Corporation and Nanocera are pleased to announce the for­ma­tion of a strate­gic alliance co-mar­ket­ing sus­tain­able prod­ucts and tech­ni­cal ser­vices to indus­try.  The two com­pa­nies will com­bine devel­op­ment efforts in key indus­tri­al mar­kets where cus­tomer pro­duc­tiv­i­ty and sus­tain­abil­i­ty inter­ests over­lap.  Principals at both com­pa­nies have been inter­est­ed in a col­lab­o­ra­tion for sev­er­al years and look for­ward to pro­mot­ing the alliance.

Nanocera offers lead­ing edge, envi­ron­men­tal­ly advan­taged con­ver­sion coat­ing tech­nolo­gies, which pro­vide supe­ri­or cor­ro­sion resis­tance and paint adhe­sion, elim­i­nate dam­ag­ing phos­phates and reg­u­lat­ed heavy met­als, and sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduce total oper­at­ing costs, includ­ing low­er ener­gy and water usage.

Zeta Corporation man­u­fac­tures and mar­kets Zeta Rod® sys­tems, which sig­nif­i­cant­ly improve water and ener­gy con­ser­va­tion, opti­mize the per­for­mance of indus­tri­al flu­ids, reduce water treat­ment chem­i­cal usage, and con­trol scale and bio­log­i­cal foul­ing in water sys­tems.

DoD Corrosion Prevention and Control Program demonstrates 20% make-up water reduction and 50% reduction in blow-down utilizing Zeta Rod Water Management Systems

Link to USACE ERDC ReportThe U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Research Lab (USACE ERDC/CERL) has pub­lished data col­lect­ed dur­ing a 24-month demonstration/validation project in which the  Zeta Rod® Water Management System was eval­u­at­ed for its abil­i­ty to deliv­er doc­u­ment­ed water con­ser­va­tion results while pro­vid­ing cor­ro­sion, scal­ing, and bio­foul­ing pro­tec­tion in open-loop evap­o­ra­tive cool­ing sys­tems. The report, titled “Demonstration of Non-Corrosive, Capacitance-Based Water-Treatment Technology for Chilled Water Cooling Systems” eval­u­at­ed sites at four mil­i­tary instal­la­tions in Arizona, California, and Georgia.  The study includ­ed sys­tems where the tech­nol­o­gy was pre­vi­ous­ly installed as part of a 2010 eval­u­a­tion (ERDC/CERL TR-09–20) and added sys­tems that broad­ened the range of water qual­i­ties and oper­at­ing con­di­tions eval­u­at­ed.

Results and obser­va­tions indi­cat­ed that the tech­nol­o­gy deliv­ered an aver­age 20% reduc­tion in make­up water usage and 50% reduc­tion in blow-down, while meet­ing or exceed­ing cri­te­ria for pro­tec­tion of equip­ment from scale, cor­ro­sion, and bio­foul­ing. Reductions in make-up water rep­re­sent a major water sav­ings for an instal­la­tion, while reduc­tions of blow-down water rep­re­sent a sig­nif­i­cant less­en­ing of load on installation’s waste­water treat­ment sys­tem. (The direct use of the blow-down water for grey-water pur­pos­es appears fea­si­ble, but was not demon­strat­ed.)

The tech­nol­o­gy was effec­tive in water treat­ment and deposit con­trol for a wide range of water con­di­tions, from very soft, cor­ro­sion-pro­mot­ing water to very hard, scale-pro­mot­ing water. The val­i­dat­ed appli­ca­tions are rec­om­mend­ed for con­sid­er­a­tion by deci­sion mak­ers to reduce mil­i­tary instal­la­tion chem­i­cal uti­liza­tion and sup­port Department of Defense Net Zero Water goals.

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: Zeta Rod Case Study

Imagine a swim­ming pool, rough­ly the size of a foot­ball field, five sto­ries deep.  This is the vol­ume of water (5.8 mil­lion gal­lons of water to be exact) that one U.S. Government Data Facility in the Southeastern United States has saved in one year by employ­ing Zeta Rod® Water Management sys­tems tech­nol­o­gy for its open loop water treat­ment and cool­ing water con­ser­va­tion pro­gram.  Most peo­ple are amazed to learn that a cool­ing tow­er sys­tem requires so much water to oper­ate and that cool­ing water use gen­er­al­ly eclipses all oth­er facil­i­ty water require­ments.

The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) includ­ed a Zeta Rod Water Management sys­tem as part of an Energy Project for one of its major clients in the Southeastern United States. Results doc­u­ment­ed a 22% decrease in make up water, 65% decrease in waste­water, elim­i­na­tion of chem­i­cals and an annu­al water sav­ings of 5.8 mil­lion gal­lons.

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
