Top 3 benefits of using power ultrasound in the process industry

Optimizing the process and keeping production equipment clean is a fundamental yet challenging task across industry. Fouling of industrial equipment remains one of the most critical issues that cause companies huge losses of production time and thereby increasing work, time, and energy usage costs. To tackle these challenges, we present Altum’s software-guided power ultrasound, an innovative technology, and its three main benefits.

1. Increase in production capacity

Altum Technologies’ software-guided power ultrasound has proven its ability to lengthen production runs by mitigating fouling during production, especially in cases where fouling was growing rapidly in specific equipment locations. By using Altum’s power ultrasound solution, several types of fouling can be cleaned. Moreover, our technology can also be used as a fouling prevention tool that is carried out during the production process. This method keeps production up and running without unnecessary cleaning stoppages, which, in turn, increases its capacity and performance.

2. Quality improvements

Power ultrasound can make significant improvements in the quality of the production process. Our software-guided cleaning solution can be utilized to target fouling even in the most challenging locations inside closed circuits. This feature is even more important when the industrial equipment is washed by CIP, a method that involves washing with lower volume and, at the same time, cannot be conveniently adapted if there is only a small area that causes quality issues.

3. Utility savings

Besides effective cleaning, Altum’s software-guided power ultrasound helps industrial companies in saving costs on such utilities as water, energy, and chemicals. Our ultrasonic technology solves localized cleaning challenges, that allows using shorter CIP as well as less cold and more diluted washing chemicals as it eliminates some of the cleaning bottlenecks. Power ultrasound can also be successfully used in increasing dry material content in sludges and significantly reduce wastewater treatment costs for companies that use Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) as a part of their production operation.

Fighting against fouling consequently becomes more manageable when using Altum’s software-guided power ultrasound. Additionally, our technology has flexible tools that can be used during the production process as a fouling prevention method and as a supportive tool for other cleaning or process optimization options.
