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).
