Our Green Approach To Cleaning Can Help You Meet Your Environmental Targets

Water:

Clean As New uses Tech Sonic’s Green Technology, automated hydroblasting and a proprietary water treatment and recycling system to establish a new level of environmental responsibility.

Our process uses 95% less water in cleaning heat exchangers and parts at our facilities, and up to 75% less water when done on your washpad.

This saves millions of gallons of water in a typical turnaround, and every gallon of water saved is one less gallon of wastewater generated.

Energy:

By providing our clients with heat exchangers and parts which are cleaned to like new performance levels, our client save energy because of better heat transfer and lower liquid pumping costs. Saving energy means their process is more efficient.

Implementation Of New Green Technology

Switching to Clean As New is a demonstration of a commitment to environmental sustainability. By adopting a better cleaning process, plants can not only save $100’s M USD in energy costs, but can simultaneously claim the benefits of a lower carbon footprint.

Investing In Research

At a time when the petrochemical industry is seen as the enemy, investing in Clean As New’s technology provides not only evidence of your plant’s commitment to sustainability, but the incredible savings make it easier to spend more on research to drive further improvements.

Our Employees Are Our Partners

In an increasingly gig-economy we are taking a different approach.

The Tech Sonic group of companies provides all our employees with stable, reliable income, and encourages investment in the company by our employees through a variety of company supported programs. Within all our companies, 100% of employees are owners and benefit directly from the success of the business.

Our employees work hard because it’s their company and we encourage them to balance that with life outside work, and provide a work environment that encourages innovation, engagement and fun.

A Safe Work Environment Begins From The Ground Up

Our process and our entire facility have been built around safety. You can see it in our facility design, and in our processes. We have taken safety to the max, engineering out risk to both our workers and your equipment.

Our processes all involve steps to ensure that safety is a priority on every job.

In Tech Sonic’s 10 year history of providing ultrasonic cleaning services, there has never been a recordable incident, nor has there ever been a reportable environmental event. Our goal at Clean As New is to even better that record!

Happy employees.

Our Values As A Company Are

Health, Safety And Care For The Environment

We provide our workers, subcontractors and managers, with a healthy and safe working environment.

Our success comes from planning the work and working the plan. Planning and safety go hand and hand. You can’t have one without the other.

To that end, we will prevent any situation, condition, or thing that may be dangerous to the safety or health of workers and/or the environment. We will identify and assess any hazards associated with:

  • Material(s)
  • Equipment (Tools and Machinery)
  • Environment

The ongoing commitment to this value requires the dedication, commitment, involvement, and participation of all workers, subcontractors and managers.

Say What You Mean; Do What You Say

Strong, positive relationships that are open and honest are a big part of what differentiates us from most other companies.

The hardest thing to do is to build trust, but if the trust exists, you can accomplish so much more. Being trustworthy develops the inner moral fiber of one's being.

Be who you are and say what you feel.

By doing what we say and living up to our commitments, we demonstrate our respect to one another.

Seek First To Understand, Then To Be Understood

Lack of communication is the source of almost all conflict.

In any relationship, it's important to be a good listener as well as a good communicator.

The best leaders listen to what the other person is saying until they understand their point of view before providing their own.

Communication is always one of the weakest spots in any organization, no matter how good the communication is. We want everyone to always try to go the extra mile in encouraging thorough, complete, and effective communication.

We embrace diversity in thoughts, opinions, and backgrounds. The more widespread and diverse your relationships are, the bigger the positive impact you can make on the company, and the more valuable you will be to the company.

It is critical for relationship-building to have effective, open, and honest communication.

Have Fun At Work

Having fun builds and maintains excellent morale, communication, creative thinking and performance.

A work environment that is friendly and warm encourages diversity in ideas and opinions.

We foster effective teamwork with a work culture that values collaboration. Not only does every detail matter, we take pride in both quality and efficiency.

It revitalizes people so they are healthier and have more energy to be contributing members of our team. In a teamwork environment, people understand and believe that thinking, planning, decisions and actions are best done cooperatively.

Ultimately, we all share the Team’s success.

Strive To Continually Improve

We create conditions in which people can find meaning and purpose in their work. We give our team members the autonomy to develop their mastery and grow as professionals within their roles while supporting and promoting our core values and processes.

We will either find a way and/or make a way to overcome any challenge or problem.

We vow to continuously examine and improve our business processes, while maintaining leadership and competitiveness in our industry.

We can’t succeed as a team without proper training.

SEE one, DO one, TEACH one.”

Occupational Health and safety defines: Employees are deemed competent when they can teach what they have been taught.

The ongoing commitment to this value requires the dedication, commitment, involvement, and participation of all workers, subcontractors and managers.

Legendary Customer Service

We are unified by a common goal: to do the very best for our Customers.

Our greatest assets are our Customers, because without Customers there is no company.

Build a great experience, whereby Customers tell each other. Nothing replaces “Word of Mouth”.
