Tech Sonic International, an industry leader in advanced industrial-class cleaning applications, has recently developed a new cleaning method that allows for better results than conventional techniques in a fraction of the time.
TORONTO, CANADA / CRWEPRESSRELEASE / August 17, 2015 / Tech Sonic International, the industry leader in industrial-class cleaning technologies, has announced that development has been completed on its latest version of its large-scale patented and powerful cleaning technology. The new technique combines the principles of chemistry with ultrasonic technology and has already allowed customers to see better results in a fraction of the time when compared to more conventional cleaning methods.
Bitumen, tar, grease and similar types of oil byproducts along with scale are among the most difficult challenges that oil and gas organizations must work to overcome on a daily basis. As critical process equipment becomes dirty, or fouled, during routine use, the efficiency of these units begin to fall, causing reduced throughput and higher production costs. Leaving these types of problems unchecked can significantly affect the performance of a process plant and/or permanently damage the equipment in question, causing plant down time and the potential for the equipment to be replaced well before it has achieved an ideal return on investment.
Conventional cleaning methods typically involve techniques such as high pressure water blasting and in-line chemical cleaning. In addition to the fact that these methods commonly take a great deal of time to complete, they can still leave behind a residue that materially affects performance efficiencies.
Tech Sonic’s revolutionary new ultrasonic technology aims to address all of these problems in one fell swoop, giving customers a solution that they can depend on that will allow process equipment to continue to operate without being encumbered by these difficult-to-clean oil byproducts. Tech Sonic’s solution begins when fouled, or dirty, critical process equipment, such as pumps, valves, filters and heat exchangers, are submerged in one of the company’s specially engineered mobile vessels. Electrical energy is converted into mechanical energy, which causes custom-designed and patented transducers within those vessels to vibrate.
Both positive and negative pressure waves are generated by those vibrations, which cause the creation of bubbles on the dirty objects. When those bubbles implode, or burst, they create micro-jets of cleaning energy, that loosen and remove the residue on the surface of the metallurgy- all without damaging the material itself.
Shawn Smith, the president and CEO of Tech Sonic International, said, “We know the industry is looking for better solutions,” when asked about the development of this bold new technology. “In its search for a solution, Tech Sonic looked to ultrasonic activity, with its years of proven cleaning applications in higher frequency finer cleaning applications.”
Using this revolutionary new technique, equipment in the field can be cleaned and returned to operation in a fraction of the time that it would have taken even a few short years ago. In one case study, it was revealed that manual methods of cleaning equipment had a turnaround time of between 10 to 12 hours. Using the Tech Sonic method, however, saw higher quality results achieved in as little as 30 minutes to two hours.
In the last several years, Tech Sonic has worked hard to expand its client base outside of Canada and has successfully expanded into territories such as Europe, East Asia and the Middle East, as well as the United States. Tech Sonic prides itself on pushing the envelope when it comes to the design, engineering and implementation of industrial-class heavy contaminant removal solutions and is a proud member of the Aligned Ventures Innovation Fund.
About Tech Sonic International
Tech Sonic International was originally founded in Alberta, Canada, as an industrial cleaning company utilizing high-pressure water blasting, with a focus on cleaning scaffolding and similar types of materials. The company’s experimentation with ultrasonic technologies began in 2000, shifting the company’s focus and making it an industry leader in industrial-class cleaning technologies. To this day, Tech Sonic remains committed to the continued development of these and many other types of solutions for the benefit of customers in Canada, the United States, Europe, East Asia and the Middle East.
