How We Compare › Cleaning Cost
Still think Ultrasonic Cleaning is Expensive?
Think again! CLEAN AS NEW® is less expensive than Wash Pad Hydroblasting.
Why else our clients would publish that we are“Twice as Fast at Half the Cost”?
It’s simple - they compared an Apple to an Apple!

SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE & LOWER CLEANING COST
The perception in the industry is that we are more expensive than conventional hydroblasting, even though Shell and Braskem have each published that Tech Sonic’s ultrasonic cleaning systems clean “twice as fast at half the cost.”
Why did both Shell and Braskem say that, especially when the cost of our technology and our hourly rates are more expensive than conventional hydroblasting?
THE REASON WE ARE LESS EXPENSIVE IS SIMPLE
Using ultrasound to clean heat exchangers only requires hydroblasting for pre-and post-rinsing. This cuts the cleaning duration down dramatically, and you only require one-third of the personnel and equipment to do the work.
And we’ve just taken things a step further with the launch of our robotic tube and shell-side hydroblasting equipment. It’s hard to rinse faster or better than a robot.
The combination of ultrasonic cleaning and robotic hydroblasting for rinsing reduces the need for conventional hydroblasting by 75%, which in turn reduces water consumption and wastewater by 75% and helps eliminate the safety risk on your wash pad.
