Bricmont Inc., an Inductotherm Group Company, was awarded a contract to supply eight high-production-capacity round top-charge aluminum-melting furnaces and eight rectangular, tilting holding furnaces for Weiqiao Aluminum and Electricity Company’s new production facility in China’s Shandong Province. Bricmont will provide engineering, materials, procurement and field services for the furnaces, while Inductotherm Group China will provide local materials, installation and support services.

The installation will include regenerative burners, electromagnetic stirring, in-bath metal refining and advanced controls. When commissioned in late 2012, it will be one of the largest-capacity aluminum casting centers in China.
