Zeolites are materials that can selectively adsorb vapors and gases. When zeolites adsorb a vapor or gas, they release energy in the form of heat. When zeolites are heated, the vapor or gas is released. This makes zeolites ideal for storing thermal energy.
What is Zeo™ technology?
Zeo-Tech’s Zeo™ technology produces and stores heat and cold at the same time, with no electricity, batteries, ice, or phase change materials. This enables environmentally friendly thermal energy storage and transportation, as well as drying. Zeo-Tech developed its proprietary technology over years of research and thousands of tests. The materials and process are non-hazardous, non-toxic, and proven in a wide range of applications.
How does it work?
When zeolite adsorbs water vapor in an enclosed space, the pressure is reduced which allows more water to evaporate. The evaporation of water creates a cooling effect seven times more powerful than melting ice. Water can be turned to ice in just a few seconds using Zeo-Tech’s technology. The zeolite heats up as it adsorbs the water vapor, thereby the process creates both cooling and heating at the same time. The zeolite can be recharged simply with additional heat. Video here.
