Case study: removing pipeline fouling in minutes

2018 is here, after winning Slush 100 competition and reviewing our top 5 moments of last year, it was about time to release a new case study. Previously we told the story of one of our client clogged heat exchanger, now we’ll show you how we helped food production companies Saarioinen and Atria to get rid of their pipeline fouling issues without having to stop their process.

Many companies are looking for more efficient alternatives to remove fouling from their processes. This is exactly where Altum Technologies fits.

In the case of Saarionen and Atria, they were using many man hours to clean their equipment and pipeline mechanically or manually. On top of it cleaning it manually involved stopping the process and you know, time is money.

Case Study: Remove pipeline fouling without stopping the process


As Saarioinen and Atria are processing food, a lot of their waste includes fat, which makes it very prone to stick to the inner walls of their equipment.

Altum took the responsibility to not only clean their facility pipes with AltumPI but also improve the efficiency of their process.

In this case study we’ll introduce the case, you will see “before and after” set of pictures. We will also cover the problem, the solution and the benefits of getting rid of fouling in minutes with nothing else but Power Ultrasound.

To get the case study, just submit the form which will appear after a few seconds on the bottom right corner of this page.
