Fouling Cleaning Ultrasound Technology

Ultrasound system for industrial fouling control

Identification

Altum's solution purpose is to clean and/or prevent fouling within industrial production equipment such as pipelines, heat exchangers, evaporators, valves and more, without the need to stop production or use toxic chemicals to achieve this. This is done via Altum's software-guided high-power ultrasound solution. The plug and play system is clamped on externally so there is no need to make changes to the target equipment in order to apply the solution. Fouled industrial equipment is known to be a big contributor to greenhouse emissions as more energy is needed to keep up with production needs when the equipment is dirty. This means that in addition to allowing a non-stop production and product quality enhancements thanks to clean production infrastructure, industrial companies such as e.g. LafargeHolcim can reduce and have better control of their CO2 and NO2 emissions.
