This new service will allow process manufacturers to clean and prevent fouling from industrial equipment and piping by using software-guided ultrasonic technology. Both companies have now signed a licensing agreement of Altum’s ZPD technology to make the Smart Cleaning Service available throughout Japan across different industries like energy, petrochemicals, paper manufacturing, food, beverage companies and more.
Now Altum and NSE are combining forces to provide an ultrasonic solution that is not only powerful enough but effective for large and several types of industrial process equipment and devices. From now on companies won’t be suffering from fouling and its many related issues like production and capacity loss.

The goal of Altum and NSE collaboration is not only to bring benefits to the industry but also to the entire Planet as there will be CO2 emissions reduction from industrial production facilities. In addition, alternative methods of cleaning include toxic chemicals and it is the aim of Altum and NSE to eliminate or reduce the need of using these chemicals for cleaning production processes. NSE’s and Altum’s ultrasonic service will serve as an unprecedented tool to fight climate change to help companies to meet several of the UN set SDGs.
Altum has also secured next round of growth funding from LocalTapiola insurance companies, Tesi (Finnish Industry Investment Ltd) and Maki.vc.
