Tier-1 Auto Supplier Orders Endothermic Generators
AFC-Holcroft received an order from a global Tier-1 automotive supplier for a production gas modernization project involving the purchase of new multiple-retort E-Z Series endothermic generators. The facility receiving the equipment is located in Mexico. The endothermic generators will provide a lower-cost gas production option than the company’s existing nitrogen/methanol systems. Production furnaces in the facility will keep their existing nitrogen/methanol gas systems, but the operator will now be able to switch between nitrogen/methanol supply or the less expensive endothermic gas produced by the new generators. Multiple furnaces – consisting of pusher lines, batch integral-quench units and mesh-belt furnaces – will be retrofit to receive this option.
