Founded in Helsinki in 2016 and backed by Lifeline Ventures and Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation Tekes (now Business Finland), Altum is the first and only company in the world to use focused power ultrasound to remove fouling from industrial equipment with no toxic chemicals, no production stoppages and no equipment disassembly. This cleaning is done by externally applying the system to any liquid carrying equipment (heat exchangers, pipes, tanks, cooling towers, filters, reactors, etc.) without the need to do any changes to the equipment or the production process. The externally installed power ultrasound system is capable to clean almost any dirt, like biofouling, mineral scaling and chemical fouling in just a few minutes. Benefits of using Altum Technologies’ solution are: no production downtime, improve energy efficiency, no need to use chemicals for cleaning, minimize maintenance time, increase work safety, comply with tight environmental laws, among others. Our talent comes from the University of Helsinki and Harvard University summing up to 100 years of deep technology experience in this field. We believe our engineers are the best ultrasound DJs on Earth. For more information contact us or visit
