WE KNOW YOUR CHALLENGES
ENERGY, HEATING & POWER
The energy, heating and power generating industry, which plays a crucial role in the infrastructure and maintenance of society in any country, uses many different types of unit operations in their production processes. A common problem that arises in these operations is fouling and scaling in equipment and pipes, leading to reduced process efficiency and expensive unplanned shutdowns and cleaning. Such fouling also causes unnecessary energy consumption, which increases both costs and environmental emissions.
To reach new targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and to achieve better overall cost efficiencies, new technology like Altum’s ZPD ultrasonic cleaning is a perfect solution for the energy and power industry.
PULP & PAPER
The pulp and paper industry is based on complex and resource-intensive processes which aim to get the most efficient use of its ingoing raw materials. Production efficiency is vital to success in the pulp and paper business, both in terms of profitability and also environmental impact. A key factor that often leads to reduced production efficiency and end-product quality defects is fouling and scaling in equipment and pipes. It can also cause higher energy consumption and environmental emissions. This makes expensive shutdowns necessary for cleanup of scale and deposits.
Until recently process shutdowns were the only way to resolve these problems. Now, new technology like Altum’s ZPD ultrasonic cleaning can solve this troublesome issue for pulp and paper mills.
FOOD & BEVERAGE
The food and beverage industry is a complex and diversified sector that is sub-divided into many types of activities. Food production has distinctive characteristics which distinguish it from other process industries, such as short batch-type production processes due to variable market demands and high requirements for quality and cleanliness. The need for frequent cleaning, as well as fouling and scaling in equipment and pipes, can cause lost production downtime which in turn puts pressure on profitability.
To avoid this, manufacturers need to explore new ways to keep the production process up and running without compromising on quality and product safety. Now, new technology like Altum’s ZPD ultrasonic cleaning offers a perfect solution to do this in food processing companies.
Today, the global demand for clean water, coupled with increasing environmental concerns, make water and wastewater solutions and industries more critical than ever before. Wastewater treatment involves challenging labor- and chemical-intensive processes that are both complex and sensitive. The biggest challenges in water and wastewater treatment are high operating costs and use of toxic chemicals related to cleaning and treating the effluents.
Now, to get effective water process cleaning without using harsh chemicals, new technology like Altum’s ZPD ultrasonic cleaning offers a perfect solution to water plant operators.
OIL & GAS
The oil and gas industry is an extremely large one that is normally divided into three sub-sectors: up-stream, mid-stream and downstream. In all parts of the industry fluids and gases are transported through processes that aim to add value. To achieve this the industry is dependent on continuous, reliable and efficient operations, since any disruption can have very expensive ripple effects throughout the whole value chain. Like many other process industries there is equipment carrying liquids that gets fouled, causing reduced efficiency and unwanted interruptions in the operations.
Today to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions, and reach efficiency and environmental goals, it is imperative that technology which prevents fouling is implemented. New solutions like Altum’s ZPD ultrasonic cleaning is a perfect way to do this in the oil & gas industry.
The chemical industry is made up of widely diverse processes that manufacture a variety of goods in various phases: liquid, solid and gas. The production processes are continuously running and any disruption will cause serious, costly and troublesome side effects. One of the biggest issues negatively impacting chemical operations is fouling which sometimes results in shutdown of the whole process.
Innovations that can be used as fouling prevention tools both continuously during production and as a support for other cleaning methods can help make the operations more cost and energy efficient, helping to meet both budgets and low-carbon targets. New technology like Altum’s ZPD ultrasonic cleaning is a perfect solution to avoid fouling in the chemical industry.
MINING & MINERALS
Mining and minerals processing is a complex industry utilizing a wide range of chemical reactions. The process involves treatment of slurries where the ore is milled to enhance minerals extraction from the slurry containing both valuable minerals and unwanted waste rock. The slurry has a high tendency to deposit and accumulate on the production equipment, and this is normally even higher after the valuable minerals have been recovered and the slurry is being neutralized for disposal.
Stability of the process is extremely important as it assures the maximal recovery rate. One way to achieve process stability is through continuous deposit removal, which is now possible with technology like Altum’s ZPD ultrasonic cleaning solution
The pharmaceutical industry is a regulated and controlled that differentiate it from other industries. Medical production requires process equipment to be continuously cleaned to meet the industrial regulations. In the pharmaceutical industry the short batch-type production processes requires continuously cip as part of the operation. The need for frequent cleaning, as well as fouling and scaling in equipment and pipes, can cause lost production downtime which in turn puts pressure on profitability.
To avoid this, manufacturers need to explore new ways to keep the production process up and running without compromising on quality and product safety. Now, new technology like Altum’s ZPD ultrasonic cleaning offers a perfect solution to do this in pharma processing companies.
